    by  • 1 February 2014 • blu moon, FEATURED, flavio favini, Various

    It’s been 13 years since the Italian sailing maestro Flavio Favini won a Melges 24 world championship. Last year in San Francisco he finished runner-up to Brian Porter’s Full Throttle by two points and on many more occasions since his win in 2001, Favini has finished tantalisingly close to the top spot. Tonight the triumphant helmsman has a second title in the bag

    Full Throttle comes out on top
