8 May 2016

Porto Ercole, Italy - Congratulations are in order for Alessandro Rombelli on STIG as he is the 2016 Sailing Series® Melges 20 Porto Ercole edition Champion. Aboard with Rombelli was tactician Manu Weiller and crew members Giorgio Tortarollo and Francesca Masotto.

Michael Illbruck’s Pinta took the second podium position, and Portovenere Champ Richard Davies on Section 16 finished the event in third.

Congratulations to top Corinthian Wilma Homann on Fantastichina as this marks her second win in a row as an all-amatuer entry.
