This will be an absolutely amazing sight. Entries have closed today for the J/70 Worlds to be held in Porto Cervo, Sardinia in mid September. An incredible 175 teams have entered from 25 nations. We have an Australian team entered, Juno, with crew from the CYCA youth team. This is such an incredible opportunity for our sailors.
“We are very happy with the record number of registered participants, it’s the fruit of a project we began in 2015 when the YCCS bought a fleet of eight J/70s,” said Edoardo Recchi, YCCS Sporting Director. “We have gotten to know this One Design both in the water and on the shore. In 2016 we held ten regattas for J/70s, and this has given us a solid basis of experience that we will use to prepare for the arrival of a fleet that is more than double the size of the one that participated in last year’s World Championship in America.”
