Italian J/70 Class Update

J/70s sailing on Lake Garda/ Lago di Garda, Italy2019 J/70 Europeans on Lake Garda!
(Milan, Italy)- Breaking news! The J/70 Italian Class has been selected as the organizer of the 2019 J/70 European Championship that will take place from July 6th to 13th, 2019, in Malcesine, on Lago di Garda.

After the organization of the Audi J/70 World Championship, with 162 boats on the starting line, Italy will host another great event, with hopefully 100+ boats.

Lake Garda always attracts crews from all over Europe and is a perfect location for sailing, given the almost constant presence of the mountain “adiabatic” and thermal breezes; from the North in the morning and from the South in the afternoon.
