J/70 European Championship 2015 in Monaco

Recommended Posts

What an awful venue to hold a champs regatta. There are two windspeeds there. Nothing at all and too much!

Just curious, but are the Euro fleets having the same issues with hull fairing/headstay adjustments/rule bending as the US fleet?

 

Also yeah Monaco is a terrible place to hold the regatta.

Monaco is an excellent venue - great hotels, bars, history and the new club is great. One small thing, probably best to leave your boat at home - it all goes wrong once you take to the water.....

Anybody has any idea where next year's Euros will be happening?

 

Lake Garda anybody? ...Solent? ...Sardinia?

I am not that deeply into it but no, I haven't heard of any heavy boat mods over here.

 

It turned out, however, that the J/70 is a full pro class now and maybe real pros don't need faired bottoms to win.
