J/70 – European Championship – Hyères – 10-17 September 2022

Saturday 17th September 2022. With less than a month to go before the J/70 World Championship, being held in Monaco for the first time (14-22 October 2022), Monaco J/70 teams were to be found in Hyères for a full-scale dress rehearsal at the European Championship. A total of 88 teams from 19 nationalities took the start at this venue in the Var which lived up to its reputation, forcing crews to adapt quickly between the brisk breezes and light airs that were on the programme.

Like at home

Convincing and formidable in Monaco, Junda led by Ludovico Fassitelli claimed a bronze medal in the Corinthian (amateur) category. A result that bodes well for the rest of the season and the Worlds in October. In the same category, Ferdinando Matteo Scandolera (Irruenza) finished 22nd. In the overall ranking, Ludovico Fassitelli (Junda) was the first Monaco crew, ranked 17th ahead of Nico Poons (Charisma V) 31st, Loïc Pompée (Sailing Racing Team) 32nd, Pierrik Devic (Leonteq) 39th, Ferdinando Matteo Scandolera (Irruenza) 58th and Stefano Roberti (Piccinina) 79th.
