Robertissima is the new Melges 32 European Champion
Team Robertissima by Roberto Tomasini Grinover from Yacht Club de Monaco conquers one of the most prestigious international crown in the world of one-design racing on the race course of Riva del Garda, after 4 days of very though and pure emotional racing.
The “dream team” of Robertissima counts on starlet names not only onboard (Vasco Vascotto, Giovanni Cassinari, Federico Michetti, Gunnar Bahr, Stefano Nicolussi, Armin Raderbauer and Simone Spangaro) but also with the unrepeatable support of the shore Team led by Paola Spreafico. This season has one of the most breathtaking racing schedule for the crew which has a double commitment to the podium in Melges 32 Class as well as in MiniMaxi division.
Team Robertissima won the 2014 Melges 32 European Championship with an impressive scoring on 9 races (3,4,3,2,2,1,2,5,6) strongly defending its first place already reached in the second day of racing. Strong and respectable teams such as Inga from Sweden by Richard Goransson (with Morgan Larson calling tactics) and the Russian Team of Synergy helmed by our great friend and YCM team-mate Valentin Zavadnikov has tried to overtake our heros but it just didn't happen.
The great result by SUI 001 confirms the successful season in the Melges 32 international fleet. Robertissima won 3 times (Miami Winter Series, Audi tron Sailing Series Act 3 and Melges 32 Europeans 2014) out of 4 regattas raced in 2014.
Team Robertssima will be back on the water next week with Maxi 72 Robertissima III for a special training session on the route to the iconic and not-to-be-missed Copa del Rey 2014.
