Starting with a Westerly wind and continuing with a breeze that finished too soon, races four and five of the Melges 32 World Championship underway at the Marina di Villasimius saw the Swiss Donino strengthen its grip in the overall ranking.

After five races in total, the crew of Luigi Giannattasio is first in the ranking, followed with a margin of 5 points by the ‘yellow’ Caipirinha, winner of the 2019 Melges World League.

The performance of Luigi Giannattasio’s team was boosted by two second places today, both of which finished in front of Martin Reintjes’ crew, now followed with a gap of 6 points by Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio’s G-Spot, recovering from the opening day.

Homanit, best of the Corinthians, is confirmed in the top five: the young crew strengthened his participation to this World Championship thanks to a bullet obtained in the third race yesterday. The defending champions of La Pericolosa, led by Christian Schwoerer, also climbed the leaderboard up to fifth place, 8 points from the podium.
