Maidollis and Taki 4 are Winners in Riva

Gian Luca Perego's Maidollis ITA854, finished top of the leaderboard at the Melges 24 European Sailing Series on Lake Garda.

The event was also the Melges 24 Italian Open Nationals hosted at Fraglia della Vela Riva.

Three races were sailed in the last day, two in the morning, under a steady Peler that progressively decreased, and one in the afternoon when the Ora allowed sailing the most exciting race of the regatta.

Maidollis won the regatta with a race to spare and in Luca Perego's team there was Carlo Fracassoli in helm, Enrico Fonda calling the tactics, trimmer Giovanni Ferrari and pitman Stefano Lagi in the crew.
