Simoneschi's Audi Tron Is The First Melges 24 Team Hoping For Podium Position Win In Loano
3 April 2015
Loano, April 3rd 2015 – Riccardo Simoneschi's Audi tron is the first team hoping to be crowned as the Melges 24 "First of the Kings" on opening day at the 2015 Audi tron Sailing Series, event organised by B.Plan Sport&Events in cooperation with Melges Europe.
The tricky lack of wind allowed only one race, with unstable wind blowing 10 knots. The one and only race was won by the Audi Italia Sailing Team, with Simoneschi on the helm and tactician Enrico Fonda.
Second place went to Lenny, with two-time Olympian Tonu Toniste, and third place for a surprising Marco Cavallini's Jeco Team.
The lead group is completed by Czech team Margarita in fourth and Swiss team Cinghi-aile, in fifth just ahead of Andrea Racchelli's Altea.
Tomorrow morning another thrilling sailing day will be start at 9,55 am on the racing field by the Marina di Loano, and the Yacht Club, with a foreseen stronger northern wind blowing.
