Luino, the end of the Tour

The last day of racing in Luino, event valid also as Lino Favini Cup, brought many changes in the overall ranking: provisional leaders aboard MAIDOLLIS ITA854 were forced to withdraw from the day of racing because of their tactician Enrico Fonda being ill, and other top-teams slipped from podium positions because of the big wind shift and shortening the race course that affected the first race of the day. With a 12th and a 1st, FGF SAILING TEAM managed to get on top of podium, being awarded with Lino Favini Cup Perpetual Trophy and were crowned also as the Melges 24 Swiss champions, followed by the consistent Danish entry SOFFE DEN782 of Kim Christensen that never scored anything worse than a 6th in the whole series. Bronze medal in Lino Favini Cup goes to TAKI 4 that is also winner in the Corinthian division. 
The Corinthian podium was not much affected by the unpredictable races of today, with TAKI 4 being followed by GILL RACE TEAM and Michael Tarabochia's WHITE ROOM GER677 with Luis Tarabochia helming. Eddy Eich's MUSTO RACING GER803 helmed by Kicker Schäfer, third after the races of yesterday, closed the event slipping into seventh position.
