LA SUPERBA Three-peats at Coppa Italia J/24 Regatta

October 16, 2019

The sixth stage of the 2019 Italian J/24 National Series took place in Mandello del Lario, Italy. The competition was intense and very close for most of the regatta. Nevertheless, there was a familiar team sitting atop the podium—the Italian Navy team aboard LA SUPERBA, skippered by Ignazio Bonanno with crew of Simone Scontrino, Vincenzo Vano, Francesco Picaro and Alfredo Branciforte. Their team won convincingly with a record of 1-2-1-1 for three points net. Second place went to Pietro Diamanti’s ITA 212 JAMAICA, with crew of Fabrizio Ginesi, Paolo Governato, Edoardo Ghirlanda and Giuseppe Incatasciato. They finished comfortably second with a tally of 5-1-2-2 for 5 points net. Third place went to ITA 371 J JOC ALCE NERO, owned and skippered by Fabio Apollonio, with crew of Giuseppe Diamanti, Lorenzo Marini, Tommaso Fusato and Alessia Bellotti. “We are very pleased to have won, after the Italian and European Championships, also the 2019 Italian Cup. Above all, because it took place on the lake and not on the sea, which is a race course more suitable for us,” commented Bonanno. Apollonio added, “The Lario club provided fantastic organization and hospitality and has certainly won a stage of the National Circuit 2020.” For more Italian J/24 Class information, visit https://www.j24.it/.
