Fausto Rubbini On Top In Lerici After Three Races

4 October 2008

2008 International Melges 32 Class new fleet comer Fausto Rubbini on ITA-170 Thule has taken a very tight lead over second place holder Luigi Melegari on ITA-181 Matrix. Melegari has had a very successful ride on the Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series Circuit in 2008 and it's no shock that only one point separates him from overall leader Rubbini. In third is Lorenzo Santini's ITA-1 Uka Uka Racing with Claudio Recchi at the helm, Gabriele Benussi is busy calling tactics.

Friday's three races revealed a literal battle between the top three. Melegari took race one, while Rubbini grabbed his share on the second race. In the third race of the day, Recchi closed with a bullet.

More races are set to take place on Saturday and Sunday as the final event of the 2008 Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series comes to a close.
