Melges 24 in Luino 2015 Day 1 - MM/BPSE

October 9, 2015 - Luino, Italy - The diversity of the weather did not prevent the holding of the first races valid for the Coppa Lino Favini, final round of the Audi tron Sailing Series and the Melges 24 European Sailing Series. The balance for the end of the first day was two valid results, thanks to the experience of the PRO Fabio Barrasso, who spent a lot of time to set up the race course despite of the wind shifts.
