Pasquavela 2010: Incredible Hulk

7 April 2010

April 6, 2010 - Yesterday the 2010 edition of the classical Pasquavela regatta organized by the Porto Santo Stefano Yacht Club finished. It was the first real experience for the Audi Melges 20 class due to a collection of several types of boats and so becoming a great sailing party.

Many crews came from the whole Italy to participate at this event that anticipates the first Audi Sailing Series appointment that is going to take place in Lerici from 17th to 18th of April. Among all the 15 teams Stefano Di Properzio, on board of Hulk, with Lorenzi Bressani as tactician and Federico Michetti as trimmer won the competition. Despite the only three races and the fierce challengers, the regularity of Hulk was rewarded. So the Renato Vallivero boat, Turnover, reached the second position with Marco Perazzo as helmsman and Daniele Cassinari as tactician, the real news of the 2010 season. Then Luca Domenici on Notaro Team, with Andrea Casale as tactician took place in the third position. Benedetto Giallongo, the champion of the 2009 season, on his Value Team finished the manifestation in the fifth place, a not very brilliant result.

The Pasquavela 2010 edition was a very important occasion to welcome in the class two new teams at their first Melges 20 experience: Tommaso Buzzi-Marco Borsone on board of Infilapertre and Stefano Colombo-Matteo Rossomando on Red Crow were the new entry.

The next expected event of the Audi Melges 20 class will take place in Lerici for the first Audi Sailing Series appointment in program from 17th to 18th of April.
