Melges 32 World Championship 2020 - Consistent leadership for Donino
Villasimius, Sardinia: Started with a Westerly wind and continued with a breeze that finished too soon, races four and five of the Melges 32 World Championship underway at the Marina di Villasimius saw the Swiss Donino strengthen its pace in general raking: after five regattas in total, the crew of Luigi Giannattasio is first in the ranking, followed with a margin of 5 points by the 'yellow' Caipirinha, winner of the 2019 Melges World League.

The performance of Luigi Giannattasio's team was boosted by the two second places of today, both of which finished in front of Martin Reintjes' crew, now followed with a delay of 6 points by Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio's G-Spot, in clear recovery from the opening day.

Homanit, best of the Corinthians, is confirmed in the top-five: the young crew strengthened his participation to this World Championship thanks to bullet obtained in the third regatta yesterday. The defending champions of La Pericolosa, led by Christian Schwoerer, also climbed the leaderboard up to fifth place, 8 points far from the podium.

The races will resume tomorrow at 11am. The Melges 32 World Championship can count on a maximum of ten races: there are still five more to be completed between Friday and Saturday, when it will not be possible to give any warning signal after 4pm.
