73 boats met in Riva del Garda for one of the biggest European J/70 events of the season with North-powered teams finishing at the top!
With perfect sailing conditions, amazing competition, and one of the most competitive J/70 fleets in the world, the 3rd Act of the J/70 Alcatel Cup on Lake Garda was an all- around success for all sailors. Claudia Rossi’s Petite Terrible topped the seventy-three boat fleet with two race wins and a total of only 18 points. In second place was Carlo Alberini’s Calvi Network, followed by Mauro Roversi with his team J Curve. Petite Terrible sailed with North Sails XCS-1 mainsail, J-2 Jib and AP-1 Spinnaker.
