ROMBELLI CROWNED 2017 MELGES 40 GRAND PRIX CHAMPION, ISHIDA WINS BIG IN PALMA
This is only the second event for Yukihiro and clearly, he and his team have mastered the Palma racing landscape.
The Melges 40 performed phenomenally in Palma's great wind, clocking in 25 knots downwind at a wind speed of 28 knots. Easy, safe, and a ton of fun.
After a solid season including their second place finish in Palma, Alessandro Rombelli and tactician Francesco Bruni aboard
STIG are crowned 2017 Melges 40 Grand Prix series champions.
INGA with Cameron Appleton leaves the season on an upswing, landing two second place race finishes to secure a third overall in Palma. Valentin Zavadnikov’s
DYNAMIQ SYNERGY SAILING TEAM with Ed Baird completes the field of competitors.
A very special thank you to all the teams for an amazing 2017 season, (2018 will be BIGGER) and especially to Grand Prix supporters Helly Hansen, Garmin Marine, Barracuda Communication and North Sails.
