It's pretty difficult to imagine a better start.
The bizarre weather conditions that had scourged Italy in this anomalous springtime have finally granted a rest giving the fifteen crews an impeccable weekend.

Three days of sun and wind, many changes of speed and direction, often difficult to be interpreted, allowed the fleet to shake off the winter rust indicating to the teams which aspects have to be evaluated and optimized in view of the next events on Lake Garda.
The Melges24Tour 2018 will be a difficult circuit and who will leave to “the good star” or to an alleged innate talent the destiny of their position in the scoring list can only hope that, by sailing in solitude on the bad side of the course, some Saints protecting the roulette players will help him for the audacity he showed.
The three days of Punta Ala can be summarized in a few but clear points: the clear supremacy of Altea by Andrea Racchelli, always confident in tactical choices even when put under pressure by an aggressive Rober Bakoczy HUN-759, the confirmation of Taki 4 as " boat to beat " in the Corinthian Division, always fast and consistent and finally, last but not least, the surprising performance of General Lee ITA-793 with a Super-Mario (Ziliani) at the helm who, after several years of inactivity, has shown to remember how to steer a Melges24.
What about losers? Too hard to list those who, Italians and foreigners, have decided not to participate in Punta Ala, summarizing: "Errare humanum est".
