After the stage of Kristiansand (NOR), the Cetilar M32 European Sailing Series is going on, and Vitamina Sailing, team supported by PharmaNutra SPA through its brands Cetilar and SiderAL, is ready to go back on the water to tackle two main events in its intense regatta season: the fourth act of the European M32 catamaran circuit, scheduled in Aarhus, Denmark, from today until Saturday 30 June, and the second event of the Melges 40 Grand Prix 2018, set in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 July.
In Aarhus, the next location for the expected Olympic Classes World Championships, the M32 Vitamina Veloce SiderAL, helmed by the President of PharmaNutra SPA, Andrea Lacorte (who will be joined on board by Matteo De Luca, Diego Battisti and the young Australians Torvar Mirsky and Cameron Seagreen, current Match Race World Champions), will have to defend the second place in the general rankings of the Cetilar M32 European Sailing Series, aiming to conquer the leadership currently held by the Swiss Section 16 owned by Richard Davies, who is ahead of the Lacorte team by only three points.
Three days of racing, as usual, with a maximum of 8 races a day, to be sailed on short tracks full of adrenaline, possibly near the coastline, to ensure maximum visibility for the public even from the land.
After the M32 regattas in Denmark, the Vitamina Sailing Team will once again return all together to jump onboard the Melges 40 Vitamina Cetilar for the second round of the season, scheduled in Porto Cervo, with the organization of the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club, from 5 to 8 July.
After the first stage held in Palma de Mallorca in early May, the Melges 40 fleet will then make its long-awaited seasonal debut in Italian waters for the second of the four events scheduled this year, an event that will see the five One Design line up already in the Balearic regatta, with great names of international sailing on board.
