ALCATEL J/70 Cup Series Announcement

J/70s sailing Alcatel Italy Cup (San Remo, Italy)- In 2016, the ALCATEL J/70 Cup- emblematic of the Open Italian J/70 National Championship- enjoyed strong participation from across Europe, with 67 teams sailing in the four event series from 11 nations (Italy, Brazil, Germany, Great Britain, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, & Switzerland).  Building on their successful and very popular format, the ALCATEL Group is again sponsoring the event and they anticipate an even larger turnout this year since it also marks the first time the AUDI J/70 World Championship will be hosted in Italy (Porto Cervo, Sardinia).

The schedule of events starts in San Remo (adjacent to Monaco), and then moves to Lake Garda off to the northeastern part of Italy at the base of the spectacular Italian Alps, then south down to Scarlino.  As a result, the teams in the ALCATEL J/70 Cup can easily travel across on one of Vincenzo Onorato’s MOBY LINES (also an avid J/70 owner/skipper) to participate in the Worlds on Sardinia!  Here is the overall schedule for the ALCATEL J/70 Cup:
  • Apr 29- May 1    San Remo- YC San Remo
  • May 26-28    ALPEN CUP @ Malcesine- Fraglia Vela Malcesine
  • June 23-25    EURO CUP V @ Riva del Garda- Fraglia Vela Riva
  • Jul 28-30    Scarlino- Club Nautico Scarlino
