It was sisters Sonia and Alessia Ciceri and their skipper Pierluigi Puthod who sailed BRUSCHETTA GUASTAFESTE to victory in the seventh stage of the Italian J/24 Cup in the waters of Mandello del Lario. Taking second place on the podium was Ubaldo Ranzi’s CUCUIA which was skippered by Marco Giannini. Then, rounding out the podium with the bronze medal was Davide Grignani and Massimo Anghileri’s TATANKA which was helmed by Richard Martini. “Two days of sunshine and a drop of wind meant we only had to do two very tough tests with situations that were never predictable. Well done BRUSCHETTA, CUCUIA and TATANKA, who deservedly got on the podium,” commented the Lario J/24 Fleet Captain Mauro Benfatto. With seven stages completed, the 2023 Italian J/24 Cup, which is divided into nine events from March to November, will again award the J/24 Cup Trophy to the best Helmsman-Owner (from their best four events) and the Francesco Ciccolo Perpetual Challenge Trophy (reserved for the first place in the National Circuit without considering the discards).
