Melges season is in full swing in Europe as 18 countries prepare to send boats to Estonia for the 2010 Worlds in just three weeks.  Volvo Ocean Race alum Eiven Melleby’s Full Medal Jacket (3rd at Annapolis Worlds) took Hankø Race Week in Norway in a 28-boat field last week, while this pic shows  Nicolo Bianchi and Chicco Fonda’s ‘Nose Sailing Team’ celebrating a hard-fought victory of both the Lake Garda event and overall Volvo Cup for 2010.  And of course they’re all anarchists…

Check out some great shots from Pierrick Contin here via Facebook, and for a reminder of why Lake Garda is the most ideal small-boat sailing venue on earth, do not miss this gorgeous 7-minute clip (with obligatory house music) from Torbole.  The lake will host two more major Melges events this year; the Audi Sailing Series for the 32s starts next week, while On-The-Water Anarchy will be on hand to show off an amazing 40 boats (barely a year after the first euro boat landed) for the first-ever Audi Melges 20 Gold Cup in Malcesine July 22-25.
