Today the first-ever Melges 40 regatta began, and here’s a quick preview from our friends at Melges Europe.

Designed to race with maximum performance, everyone is quite curious and excited to check out the numbers produced by the Melges 40. Its initial performances in Dubai over the past few months show speeds very similar to that of a TP52.

For the first 2017 event and the only one to be held in Italy, there are four teams in Porto Cervo. Additional Melges 40s will be launched in the coming months.
Alessandro Rombelli’s STIG (Melges 32 and Melges 20 World Champion), Richard Goransson on INGA (2016 Melges 32 Series Champion), Valentin Zavadnikov’s SYNERGY GT (2014 Audi Sailing Series), and Hannes Waimer at the helm of NIGHTSHIFT from Dubai are the protagonists of the Melges 40 Grand Prix.

The current onboard configuration is a crew of nine, including the helm/owner. Tactics will be entrusted to Olympic Gold Medallist Jordi Calafat on STIG, multi-champion Vasco Vascotto for INGA, America’s Cup winner Ed Baird on SYNERGY GT, and former Volvo Ocean Race sailor Gordon Maguire for NIGHTSHIFT.

The Melges 40 Grand Prix is proudly supported by Helly Hansen, Garmin Marine and Barracuda Communication.

Check out the video from the 3rd event of Italy’s Alcatel J/70 Cup for a slightly long but beautifully produced story of sportboat racing in Sardinia.  More from our old friend and Italian J/70 Class Prez Vittorio:

Quite frankly, we had a truly fantastic week-end with great racing conditions, outstanding hospitality by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (with a social event every night!), and lots of beachside fun for our accompanying friends and families. It was probably the best event organised by the J/70 ITALIAN CLASS so far (results here).

The week-end was also a live test for next year’s J/70 Worlds (Sept 12-16, 2017). We are already working to prepare another great event for you (all of the above plus simplified logistics, group discounts on ferry boat transportation, hotels, food and entertainment). We will present the full program of next year’s event during the Italian Night that we plan to host at the St. Francis Yacht Club in September during the 2016 J/70 Worlds in San Francisco. You are already invited to participate!

We are confident to have all the ingredients to host a great event next year which will be key in further growing the J/70 Class in the Med. CAN’T MISS PORTO CERVO 2017 !
