European Melges 32 Fleet : 2010 Melges 32 Audi Sailing Series

6 December 2009

Dear European Melges 32 Owners,

The European fleet is excited about the forthcoming 2010 Audi Sailing Series in which there are many key events that you should plan now to attend. It will be yet another banner year for the Melges 32!

In brief, the first stage of the Audi circuit will take place in Liguria followed by the beautiful and elegant Tuscany. The very first European Melges 32 Championship will take place in Sardinia, where the racing and social activities will go above and beyond expectations, not to mention the first-ever Audi Invitational in June. Rounding out 2010 is a grand event planned for Lake Garda.

Other important regattas to include on your calendar of racing events are the Primo Cup held in Monaco and Copa Del Rey taking place in Palma de Mallorca in August.

In North America, another line-up of regattas have been scheduled to perfectly complement the Audi Sailing Series in Europe. Kicking off the season is one of the world’s most popular international yachting events, Key West Race Week happening late-January. The eight-part circuit concludes with pre-worlds, held in coordination with the famous Rolex Big Boat Series, then the World Championship, both in San Francisco, Calif. USA.

Please welcome our new European Class Secretary, Niccolo Bianchi who will be your fleet point of contact for the season. If you have questions, and or need assistance in any shape or form, do not hesitate to contact us at eurofleet@melges32.com.

Filippo Pacinotti
European Melges 32 Fleet President
