September 10, 2010, (Rimini, Italy) - Club Nautico Rimini is prepared, ready and standing by to host the grand finale act of the 2010 Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series.

Last July, at the spectacular Audi Melges 20 Gold Cup in Malcesine, the strong and persevering Reggini Sailing Team of Francesco Farneti dove head first into the competitive fleet with his sights clearly set on also winning the circuit title. Now, Farneti hopes that his home court advantage will serve him well against current series leader Benedetto Giallongo on Value Team. As defending champion of the famed circuit he is the team to beat. Should Giallongo win the circuit, he will make history as no other team to date has been able to achieve consecutive, back-to-back series titles. He sits nine points ahead of Farneti in second overall.

In third overall is Luca Domenici on Notaro Team that must overcome a huge 23 point deficit to tie for first. Needless to say, it will not be an easy task. Renato Vallivero’s Turnover is enjoying his rookie season in fourth followed by Stefano Di Properizio’s Hulk in fifth.
