J/70 Monaco + Italian Riviera Spring Circuit Announcement!

J/70 sailing off Monaco (Monte Carlo, Monaco)- The two fleets that perhaps boast two of the most exotic locations on Earth to sail are the J/70s in Monte Carlo, Monaco and San Remo, Italy.  Together, the Monaco Fleet Captain (Jacopo Carrain) and the San Remo Fleet Captain (Vittorio DiMauro) invite all J/70 sailors from across Europe (or anywhere!) to come join them for what may become the “most excellent” spring sailing series anywhere.

Basically, they’re offering the opportunity to all European J/70 teams to sail five regattas with one single road trip to the Mediterranean- the Monaco Winter Series last three events are also part of the Italian Circuit’s first three stops on their tour.

With simplified logistics, beautiful warm temperatures and fabulous places to enjoy with friends, why not escape the grips of the “polar vortex” and enjoy nearly four months of weekend racing on the Med’s famous Riviera! With all 18+ boats from the Italian fleet and the 16+ boats from the Monaco fleet show up on the starting line, that’s 30+ boats flying offshore for some excellent training prior to the J/70 Worlds in La Rochelle, France!  For more J/70 YC Monaco fleet sailing information
