Audi 'Sail And The City' To Feature The Melges 32 Alongside of Sailing And Music In The Heart Of Milan

24 March 2009

Beginning on Thursday, March 26, for three days, Audi will create a spectacular event in the heart of Milan. The mark of four rings, in fact, in the Piazza Duca d'Aosta, will be the three boats which compete in the most important international racing circuit. A large audience of fans will have the opportunity to approach the charming world of sailing and to touch these technological jems. 

Undisputed protagonist of the hull will be the Audi TP 52 powered by Q8, which publicly has already been admired  during the last year at Porto Antico in Genoa during the Audi Music on the Docks and the Bologna Motorshow. Enriched by the presence of the Official Partner Belstaff is Riccardo Simoneschi, returning from an intense season of lively racing. 

The TP 52 will be supported by the Melges 32, a new type of high performance yacht that Audi has chosen to support. The Audi Sailing Series, a five regatta series that only after just one year, is an undisputed landmark for the best sailors in the world. 

The third vessel featured is the Audi Melges 20 on which the House of Ingolstadt has bet without hesitation. Audi is its title sponsor and sustains its international athletic activities. 

Through a media path inside the exclusive Audi Lounge in Piazza Duca d'Aosta, guests can admire the most spectacular Audi Sailing Team and learn more about the racing world of Audi. 

Audi's Sail and the City will also offer music and entertainment. The evening of Friday, March 27, the very well known television personality Petra Loreggian will present the event to the public bringing on stage the energy and charm of Lola Ponce for a concert starting at 20.30.
