After accepting a number of additional entries received past the July 3rd deadline, having now reached the record number of 175 entries, the organisers of the Audi J/70 World Championships have been forced to close registration.
Vittorio Di Mauro, of the Italian class association, said “This unprecedented number of boats, the largest J/70 event of all time, will already be a logistical challenge. We need to cap to the total number of participants to guarantee the organization of a great event, both on water and ashore. We count on your understanding and support.”
We will be watching this event with enormous interest, not just because it will be an incredible spectacle, but also because we will host the event from Torbay in two years time! This year’s J-Cup, taking place from 17-19 August, may be the only chance you get to practice on the same race course, so get your entry in! The fee of £192 includes berthing on the quay and your complimentary regatta t-shirts. Plus we have recruited the incredible Joey the Lips for the big party on Saturday night! http://rtyc.org/entry-j-cup/
