Competitor Announcement No. 1 : Melges 32 World League 2018 - Scarlino

30 May 2018

Everything is ready for the second event of the 2018 Melges 32 World League, taking place in Scarlino.

We are very happy to welcome back two longtime friends of the Melges 32 Class: EDOARDO LUPI and MASSIMO PESSINA with their team TOPRYONE, as well as EDOARDO and VANNI PAVESIO with their team FRA MARTINA.

We are looking very much forward to a spectacular event both on the water and ashore.

PRO Maria Torrijo will drive the Race Committee. The Umpires on the water will be Marco Mercuriali and Miguel Allen.

We take the chance to remind you that your team support is fundamental in order to make the event great.

Especially we are asking for your collaboration in your teams attendance at all social events, mainly the Opening Ceremony and Prize Giving. If you have any commitment please make sure at least 3-4 of your crew is present. The social events are important to enable the Class to provide good material to our current sponsors, get additional sponsors, add value to the regatta venue, and to show the strong spirit of the Class.

We kindly remind you that the boats have an assigned mooring location, and staring from Event #2, the mooring order reflects the current Melges 32 World League circuit standings. The Marina of Scarlino has already applied the mooring signs.

Last but not least, congratulation to the newly appointed Melges 32 European Board Members:

  • Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio of G-SPOT
  • Ahmet Eker of EKER
  • Martin Reintjes of CAIPIRINHA
  • Christian Schwoerer of LA PERICOLOSA
  • Fritz Homann of WILMA

If you have any further inputs, please feel free to get back to us. We are always keen to collect your feedback and ideas!

Thank you for your continued support and for making the Melges 32 Class great!

See you soon in Scarlino.
