The 42nd Winter Championship of Anzio and Nettuno had 21 J/24 crews take to the water. It was a tight battle between LA SUPERBA skippered by Ignazio Bonanno and BLACK LEATHER (Paul Cecamore) skippered by the 2014 Soling World Champion Farkas Litkey. “It’s been a good start for the regatta,” commented SUPERBA’s skipper Bonanno. “In the opening race, won by Farkas Litkey and Paul Cecamore, we finished in second place because of a slight collision with the J/24 skippered by Federico Miccio (ITA 216 Jumpin’jack Flash). In the second race, however, we won with a good gap from the second place boat, Black Leather. For this regatta, the J/24 fleet was a little less numerous than recent years, but the competition was always on a good level.” The provisional rankings have LA SUPERBA in first, followed by BLACK LEATHER in second, DAIQUIRI in third (with skipper Fabrizio Sabatini), AMERICAN PASSAGE in fourth (with Paul Rinaldi as skipper/owner), and GREEN RAY in fifth (with Carmelo Savastano as skipper).
