Italian J/70 Sailing League Launched

Italian J/70 Sailing League

This past weekend, the Legavela Servizi (LVS), the organisation that is managing the Italian J/70 Sailing League, proudly christened their fleet of ten J/70s for their upcoming season in Trieste, Italy.

The LVS is managed by Alessandro Rinaldi, and their organization is expecting to have an enormous impact on Italian sailing, especially for club sailing teams and youth sailing teams throughout the country.

The first event will be an introductory regatta called the “Adriatic Cup”, hosted by YC Trieste, that will take place from the 7th to 9th of April.  The goal is to make this event yet another “classic” event on the J/70 class calendar in the Mediterranean region, like the J/70 EuroCup has become for Fraglia Vela Riva on Lago di Garda.
