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.

The event will also be a perfect preparation for the J/70 Worlds that will take place in Torquay, England at the beginning of September 2019.

In anticipation of those two events, the Italian J/70 sailing season for 2018 is gearing up for a busy summer. There are four events for the famous ALCATEL J/70 CUP. Last year, the circuit hosted over 100 crews and it is anticipated they will exceed this figure again in 2018. The four events are the following:

  • 6-8 April - ALCATEL J/70 Cup - San Remo
  • 11-13 May - ALCATEL J/70 Cup - Porto Ercole
  • 12-15 July - ALCATEL J/70 Cup - Malcesine - ALPEN Cup
  • 7-9 September - ALCATEL J/70 Cup - Trieste
For further information on the events, please contact Italian J/70 Class - Silvia Gallegati via email, or on their website, www.j70.it
