The start of a Melges32 Regatta with the Malcesine Castle on the background


In the last days, like the previous weekend, I couldn't update the blog because I was out working: this time in the Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series in Malcesine for the first regatta in Europe of this new and spectacular class. Many experts say that Melges 32 will rapidly grow in number of boats and stature. Vincenzo Onorato has just bought one of these boats and rumours tell that Larry Ellison and Ernesto Bertarelli are going to do the same.

Luigi Amedeo Melegari onboard Matrix is the winner of the inaugural Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series 2008.
Three days of great racing organised by Audi in collaboration with the Fraglia Vela Malcesine, has delivered action to the Melges 32 fleet and its competitors!
There were many possibilities as to who could be among the contendors of the Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series and first to respond was Matrix. Melegari showed great consistency in every race including two first places finishes amongst nine races. The next stage is Cagliari, scheduled to end in June where Matrix will bear the leader's red number on its bow. They were also presented with the red leader's jersey.
