Italian Open J/70 Nationals Announcement

J/70s sailing Lake Garda, Italy (Malcesine (Lake Garda), Italy)- From July 12th to 15th, the Italian Open J/70 Championship will be taking place at Malcesine, a pretty waterfront town on the western shore of Lago di Garda. It is the perfect opportunity to test the waters of the race course for the 2019 Europeans, that will also be in Malcesine.

Registrations close on June 25th and the event will consist of four days of racing.

Following this week’s J/70 Europeans taking place in Vigo, Spain, it is expected a significant portion of that fleet will then pack up their boats and head to Italy’s most famous sailing lake, a.k.a. “the wind machine” on Lago di Garda.

One of those expert crews attending may be a three-time J/70 World Champion crew- Willem van Waay.  Here is an interview between Silvia Gallegati, the Italian J/70 Class communications director, with Willem. The main focus of the interview is on the J/70 and he says some very important “secrets” on the rigging and tuning of the boat that may be useful to all J/70 crews.
