J/35 Sailing North Sea Circuit

J/35 sailing upwind in Solent in Fastnet Race (Brussels, Belgium)- Yet another “classic” 35-footer, this time a J/35 that made its way over the North Atlantic and has now been resurrected in Belgium- she looks simply spectacular.  Her current owner, Jan Gabriel, renamed her RAGAZZA and sent us this note:

“Thought it would be good to inform you that we entered our J/35 RAGAZZA in last year’s 2013 RORC Fastnet Race.  The old girl is still going strong, we managed a 7th place in the 83 boat strong class 4!  Please find attached a picture of RAGAZZA when beating out of the Solent last August. Love this boat! Thank you for any advice on polars, tuning and sail trim!  Cheers, Jan”
