J/70 European Championship at Mount Argentario, Italy - Day 4

by Julie & Christopher Howell 25 May 07:20 BST 18-25 May 2024

The J/70 European Championship ranking continues to evolve with the dynamism that has characterized it since the first day. On Friday (with two races completed), for the first time since the start of the Championship, a crew managed to achieve their second victory of the series, the first interruption in the trend according to which, up to now, nine different winners had alternated in nine races.

The Brazilians of Ocean Pact hit the second bullet of the series, winning the first race both Thursday and Friday. Thanks to this result, the crews recovered important points and gets up to third place in the standings.

The best boat of the day was the American Catapult which, with scores of 5-12, climbed the rankings up to the provisional silver medal. Ahead of this crew were her compatriots on Doug Rastello's Good To Go who did not let themselves be slowed down by the disqualification for an early start in the first race of the day and achieved victory in the last. The leadership of the ranking goes to them, taken away from Wanderlust who slips to fourth place, but remains first in the Corinthian division and among the European crews, therefore still in full fight to win the title.

The Spanish Patakin closes the top five, while the English Jeepster is sixth overall and Corinthian second. Completing the top ten, with a margin of just over 40 points from the leader, are Viva in seventh place, then Mindset, G.Spot and Sardonyx.
