Second day of racing at the 2016 Melges 20 Worlds

Scarlino, Italy - The second day of racing at the 2016 Melges 20 World Championship.

Drew Freides' Pacific Yankee is the new leader with a one point advantage over Michael Illbruck on Pinta now seated in second place.

From two perspectives, Freides and Illbruck have separated themselves from the rest of the fleet.

First, they are the only two teams to have have maintained a solid single-digit scoreline thus far and second, by doing so they have extended their lead by 23 points.

It was moving day for Liam Kilroy on Wildman as he leaped eight positions from 11 overnight to now sit third - special thanks to an amazing first place finish in Race Four.

Alessandro Rombelli's STIG battled hard to end up second, helping his effort of breaking into the overall top ten, and Achille Onorato's Mascalzone Latino Jr. captured third.

Rob Wilber's Cinghiale delivered another great performance in Race Five coming on strong to take the win, Freides was second and again, the younger Kilroy took third.

Saturday marks the third day of competition and the forecast is calling for more light air conditions.
