Trapani, August 29th 2015 – On the day before the Melges 32 series conclusion, Stig (Rombelli-Bruni, 4-2) scored the tap-in that might allow the crew to reach the world victory. Stig seemed to be pretty confident with the light breeze and the high pressure present in Sicily for a few days now, took advantage of the negative day for Argo (Carroll-Appleton, 21-15), that in 2 races has scored double the points collected during the first 6 series races.
