When the Italians find a boat they like, they push it to the limits to get on the pace. That was proven by their total dominance at the Melges 24 Worlds last month, and it’s true in the Melgest 32 as well – with Italy taking the first four spots of 12 teams at the Audi Melges 32 event in Cagliari, Sardinia. Even Illbruck’s Pinta could only manage a fifth. Melges 24 World Champion Uka Uka Racing won it on the final race, with former Mumm 30 World Champ Claudio Recchio at the helm, Gabriele Benussi on tactics and our good pal Federico Michetti on main. This hot shot is from Max Ranchi.
