The Melges 24 World Championship drew 129 fiercely competitive boats from 22 countries and 4 continents. This championship lacked the typical strong winds, but was nevertheless characterised by some very tough regattas.

Over the course of 5 days of competition, including 11 races, Riccardo Simoneschi’s yacht was always in the lead group.  Simoneschi kept a cool head in moments of stress, and the Audi-Eberhard Sailing Team finished the event standing in the 3rd spot on the podium.  This is a result that rewarded the hard work of the team, which has shown great skill in reading the winds of Benaco.  By balancing conservative decisions with a fighting spirit Riccardo Simoneschi's yacht aggressively tackled all duels with its competitors.

Very satisfied with the result, Simoneschi declared: “It was a fabulous Championship, even though the wind failed to live up to expectations. We always sailed well, making excellent tactical decisions, with a perfect crew and a satisfactory boat speed. The podium is our reward”.

Eberhard & Co. shared the enthusiasm and satisfaction: “2012 has been a great season, full of excitement, and this last result perfectly crowns it” says Mario Peserico, General Manager of Eberhard & Co. “We’re sure that the final appointments of the year will bring additional positive results”.
