The inaugural J/70 European event took place at Fraglia Vela Riva over four days last week with boats from 8 nations competing.

Following on from their recent wins at the UK Nationals and the J/Cup the North Sails boat sailed by Scott Ruairidh, Ben Field, Charlie Cumbley and Matt Curthoys won the event.

With an impressive 9 wins out of the 11 races held they blew the competition away, in the final results they were 11 points clear of the 2nd placed crew helmed by Frédéric Bouvier of France. Close on the French boats heels were Joe Wood's team from the UK.  All top 3 boats raced with North sails.

Results: 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,11
