JAMAICA Leading J/24 Italian National Circuit
October 17, 2016
The Circolo Nautico Brenzone ran the penultimate event for the season-long Italian J/24 National Championship series—a six-event program that runs from April to November. Winning the latest event was VALHALLA HOTEL VERONA skippered by Fabio De Rossi with crew of Enrico Perbellini, Massimiliano D’Elia, Marco Fiorini and Petra Kurutz. The races in Cervia ensured fun and entertainment for everyone. Taking advantage of the conditions to take second place was MAGIC FAIRY skippered by John Brescia Bonzio and owned by Viscardo Brusori. Third was CAPTAIN NEMO sailed by owner/skipper Guido Guadagni. Pending the fifth regatta, the provisional classification overall for Helmsmen-Owners (based on the scores from events in Nettuno, Livorno, Carrara and Brenzone) shows that Pietro Diamante, the Italian J/24 Class President, is leading the event by a wide margin on JAMAICA. They are followed by CAPTAIN NEMO (Guido Guadagni) in second, VALHALLA HOTEL VERONA (Fabio De Rossi) in third, J-OC (Fabio Apollonio) in fourth and RED LEATHER (Gianni Riccobono) in fifth place. In the waters off Cervia, the Circolo Nautico Amici della Vela (www.circolonauticocervia.it) will be hosting the finale of the Italian J/24 circuit from October 15-16.
