Pacific Yankee Takes the European Fleet by storm

The second event in the Melges 20 European Circuit took place in Scarlino, Italy. With light to medium winds across the weekend the thirty-one boat fleet completed seven races.

For this event, American sailor Drew Freides and his team onboard Pacific Yankee came over to Europe, using the event as a test event before the World Championship later in the year in Cagliari, Italy. With a 14-point clearance in the race series, Pacific Yankee took the win. In second place was Polish team Mag Tiny skippered by Krzysztof Krempec, whose consistency on the first day of racing secured their position at the top end of the fleet. Both top finishers were using full North Sails inventories.

“With the fleet getting stronger and stronger every regatta it’s great to see the fleet improving along with the series. We are pleased to see more of our North 3Di sails amongst the fleet with each regatta, 3Di is the sail of the future!” – Giulio Desiderado, North Sails One Design Expert

The next event is in Lerici at the end of June, watch this space to see how this exciting fleet gets on!
