San Remo was the last appointment for the Italian Melges 24 Winter Series, and was considered the perfect opportunity to 'remove the rust' and test several new team formations.

Weekend leader, Saetta will be racing with the supreme duo of Alberto Bolzan and Daniele Cassinari. Chicco Fonda will call tactics on My Dollies, owned by Gianluca Perego. Congratulations to Gianluca as this past weekend, he launched his brand new Melges 24! Pablo soldano and Antonio Addari will sail Arteria. They placed second. And in third, was Matteo Balestrero racing with new crew asset Gheraducci Di Maio.

Leading the Corinthian division is Marco Cavallini on Jeco.

Other new teams training over the weekend included Maurizio Loberto with Zennario Enrico, Branko Brcin Bistik and Francesco Prina, Jacopo Lacerra, Paolo Bucciarelly and Claudio Paesani will climb aboard Rewind Energy Resources. Although these teams did not have their best weekend, it is evident that they will be in the top competition mix.
