2011 Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series Announced - FINAL CALENDAR

16 November 2010

Officially defined the AUDI SAILING SERIES 2011 calendar, it will be formally presented at the AUDI SAILING press conference that will be held at the end of January 2011 in Milan. The AUDI SAILING SERIES schedule includes 4 races for the Melges 32 while 5 will be the events for the AUDI Melges 20 of which the last race will also be the EUROPEAN AUDI Melges20 Championship.

The definition of this combined calendar has been a challenging task while keeping into account the needs of all involved parties with a special attention to cost control as requested by the classes and on the other hand the Sponsor’s visibility and communication. Final locations and dates have also been subjected to not overlap with other major sports dates and events supported by AUDI.

The result of this process is a well balanced Championship with 4 races for the Melges 32 in order to give room to the final part of their sailing season that is foreseen outside the Italian Waters with a well attended World Championship. With the same attention to “cost control” for the Team we have taken the decision to identify the “clou” event of the circuit, the AUDI INVITATIONAL - with its usual mix of great sailing and VIP hospitality - with one of the 4 races of the overall program to be held in the classic venue of Porto Cervo.

For the AUDI Melges 20 we will have the same great level of competitiveness with one of the biggest fleet of the Mediterranean that will compete with two major goals in mind: the winning of AUDI SAILING SERIES and the EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.

According with the international time schedule we have worked to bring all the 2011 AUDI SAILING SERIES’ events to historical and the most technical sailing racecourses of both the Italian and the Mediterranean waters.

Next step will be publishing the official NOR of AUDI SAILING SERIES, which we are all working on, in order to submit shortly a solid document that will be the reference for all the circuit .
