Maximum number of 8 races sailed in perfect conditions was a result of the three-day Balatonfüred J/24 Fleet Regatta – the season opener for the 2017 J/24 Hungarian Sailing Series. Gábor Sallai and his team on BIGFIVE was the winner with 21 points. In second place was ST.JAMES skippered by Farkas Litkey with 24 points. Litkey was the helmsman and tactician of the Italian Team Pelle Nero, who won the third place of Italian J/24 Winter Series. Following in third place, was JUKEBOX – the second overall of the Italian J/24 Winter Series – skippered by Miklós Rauchenberger with 24 points total.
What a perfect regatta! What else can we say about the days where all matches: wonderful weather with blue skies and sunshine, various North and East winds 6 to 16 knots and happy J/24 sailors enjoying all of it at the first regatta of the Hungarian sailing season. The final results show a high level, strong and very even competition: teams from second through sixth place were quite close to each other. #j24 #happysailing #j24europeans2017
