June 25, 2015
After the first four events of the Italian J/24 National Championship series (consisting of Trofeo Nettuno, Pasquavela Santo Stefano, Trofeo Academia Navale Livorno and Cala Galera), the best Helmsman-Owner of the first half of the season (the Francesco Ciccolo Perpetual Challenge Trophy) is again ITA 212 JAMAICA owned and skippered by the President of the Italian J/24 Class, Pietro Diamanti. In second for this division is AMERICAN PASSAGE sailed by Paolo Rinaldi, and third is CESARE JULIO skippered by Pietro Massimo Meriggi. Meanwhile, the winner of the Trofeo Ciccolo, emblematic of the leader of the first half of the season overall, goes to Ignazio Bonanno’s crew aboard LA SUPERBA from the Marina Militare in Livorno. They are followed by MOLLICONA sailed by Massimiliano Biagini and skippered by James Black. In third is AVOLTORE owned by Massimo Mariotti and skippered by Ettore Botticinis. “We are obviously very pleased,” said the skipper Ignazio Bonanno, “to have won this trophy which also has a sentimental value as it was established to remember a President that has marked the history of the Italian J/24 class.” For more Italian J/24 sailing information, visit http://www.j24.it/web/.
