Marina di Scarlino, Italy (May 14, 2017) - Congratulations to Achille Onorato and crew members Cameron Appleton on tactics and Stefano Ciampalini aboard Mascalzone Latino, Jr. - they are 2017 Melges 20 Scarlino Champions! Additional kudos go to Marina Kaverzina and her Marussia crew consisting of Sergey Peshkov and Valery Zatsarinskiy. They overtook the lead from Emanuele Savoini's Evinrude on the final day to win the Corinthian Scarlino title.
An additional three races were held on the final day with Onorato winning the first heat, ultimately helping seal the deal on his very first major win of the 2017 season.
The big move the day, and certainly the event, goes to second runner-up Krzysztov Krempec on Mag Tiny. Overnight, he along with crew members Tomislav Basic and Ivan Ivankovic were seated in tenth. Today, with a very profitable 2-1-13 performance, Krempec sits on the podium in second place.
Porto Venere overall Champion Vladimir Prosikhin on Nika remains on the podium, but this time in third. Igor Rytov's Russian Bogatyrs had a great event to finish in fourth, followed by Manfredi Vianini Tolomei's Maolca in fifth.
A tremendous round of appreciation and gratitude go to all the competitors, as well as the Race Committee, Marina di Scarlino and Club Nautico Scarlino for their great support and partnership.
