Dario Levi’s Fremito D’Arja Crowned First of the Kings In Loano
12 April 2015
Loano, Italy - Congratulations to Italy’s Dario Levi aboard his Audi Melges 20 Fremito D’Arja as he is the official winner — the King — of Act 1 of the 2015 Audi-Tron Sailing Series in Loano. Levi was joined by tactician Niccolo Bianchi and Stefano Lagi. He is also a former Gold Cup winner and runner up in the overall 2014 Audi-Tron Sailing Series ranking.
The results of Saturday stand as final. No racing took place on Sunday as a high pressure weather system did not allow for ideal racing conditions despite the determination of the Race Committee that remained on station until the time limit was up.
"We faced very challenging conditions this weekend, and our goal was to call the breeze as best we could… It’s not by chance that we call our boat Fremito D’Arja!” explained a happy and satisfied Levi from the award ceremony podium.
Levi was followed by Matteo Vaselli Marenghi’s Lucifer in second and Guido Miani’s Out of Reach in third. Agusta Corrado’s Customly and Lauro Bonora’s Camay rounded out the top five in fourth and fifth respectively.
Wilma Homann aboard Fantastichina took top Corinthian honors, finishing ninth in the overall division.
The 2015 Audi-Tron Sailing Series Loano edition was graciously hosted by Marina di Loano, organized by B.Plan Sport&Events (BPSE) in cooperation with Melges Europe.
In addition to main sponsor Audi, the Audi-Tron Sailing Series is supported by official sponsors Kuehne+Nagel, Technical Partners Torqeedo, Caffe Vergnano, Bavaria, Usail, Nuova Jolly and The Suite Club.
