2017 J/70 Worlds Announcement!

J/70 Worlds 2017 in Italy (Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy)- “We are confident that with the beautiful sailing conditions we experience off Porto Cervo, the extraordinary setting of YC Costa Smeralda, together with our passion, we have all the ingredients to host an unforgettable 2017 J/70 Worlds next year! This event will be an important one to help grow the J/70 Class in the Med,” commented Italian J/70 Class President, Vittorio Di Mauro.

J/70 Sardinia videoSr. Di Mauro continued to describe the ALCATEL J/70 CUP event, “Quite frankly, we had a truly fantastic week-end with great racing conditions, outstanding hospitality by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (with a social event every night!), and lot’s of beachside fun for our accompanying friends and families. It was probably the best event organized by the J/70 Italian class so far.

The weekend was also a live test for the 2017 J/70 Worlds (Sept 12-16, 2017). We are already working to prepare another great event for you (all of the above plus simplified logistics, group discounts on ferry boat transportation, hotels, food and entertainment).

We will present the full program of next year's event during the Italian Night we are hosting at St Francis Yacht Club in September during the 2016 J/70 Worlds in San Francisco. You are all already invited to participate! Thank you very much in advance and one thing for sure- - CAN’T MISS PORTO CERVO 2017!”  For more 2017 J/70 Worlds sailing information
