MELGES 24 EUROPEAN CIRCUIT

After arrangements had been made to attend this event, unfortunately David Rowan had to pull out at the last minute due to work committments. Not wanting to let the team down, he asked if I would take the Helm and brought in Josie Glidden as Tactician.
After a break of 5 years it was good to be back helming again and we were pleased with our 11th overall, missing out on a top ten place by 1 point in such a high quality fleet of 48 boats.
The racing was held in familiar Lake Garda conditions with the fleet enjoying 18 - 22 knots for most of the week and
after an intense tussle Riccardo Simoneschi continued his winning ways, coming straight from his victory in Kiel, beating Flavio Flavini on is return to racing after a serious accident and it was good to see him back.
