J/99’s dominate the Olona Cup

J/99’s finish 1st, 2nd and 5th (all double handed!) in mixed fleet Olona Cup 24hour race over the weekend.

The Olona Cup saw a large fleet of both double handed and fully crewed boats.  The J/99 which finished 2nd was the very first time sailing it for the owner, a Russian gent called Lezhnin Pjotr. The weather was a light start increasing to over 20 knots in the middle then slowly reducing in wind strength again towards the finish. A great test in variable conditions for the J/99 and she proved her worth and design.
