MELGES 32 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, WARM UP DAY WITH THE GARMIN RACE
MELGES 32 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, WARM UP WITH THE GARMIN RACE
Valencia, 24 October 2019 - The first day of the Melges 32 World Championship, an event that brought fifteen boats from ten Nations to the starting line of Marina de Valencia, begins with a "warm up" race held in conditions of very light breeze.
The Race Committee chaired by the local PRO Maria Torrijo, after waiting for the breeze from the shore to stabilize, decided to challenge the crews with the Garmin Race, a windward-leeward race followed by a coastal leg, whose finish line it was set in the heart of the Valencia Marina, in front of the famous Veles e Vents building.
The winner of the Garmin Race that, despite the light wind conditions, proved to be a compelling and competitive regatta, especially in the final stages, has been the German entry Wilma by Fritz Homann, followed on the finish line by La Pericolosa and Casino Royal.
The winner was awarded with a Garmin Quatix 5 smartwatch, offered as a prize by the partner of Melges Europe, Garmin Marine Italy.
The Melges 32 World Championship will get even more alive tomorrow, when starting from 2 pm the fleet will complete the first regattas valid to form the final ranking of the 2019 Worlds.
