Alberto Bolzan and ITA727 Pilot Italia on their way to victory

The second and final day of the Volvo Melges 24 Pre-World Championship Regatta at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo brought respite from yesterday’s storms and two outstanding races in sparkling Costa Smeralda sunshine with a breeze that built steadily from 12 to around 20 knots.

Sixty-six of the 117 teams due to compete in the main championship elected to race in the Pre-Worlds Regatta and Italy’s Alberto Bolzan, sailing ITA727 Pilot Italia for Gianni Catalogna put in a bravura performance to win all three races and take the regatta. Switzerland’s Matthias Keller, helming SUI530 Acqua for Gianluca Tribo took second overall and also wins the Corinthian Pre-Worlds Regatta for all amateur crews.
