Charlie Esse lying in 2nd place at J/70 European Championships


Congratulations to RTYC members Charlie and Anthony Esse, who, fresh from their success at the J/70 Worlds in Newport R.I. where they finished 9th in the Silver Fleet out of 43 boats and top GB boat, are now lying 2nd overall at the J/70 Europeans at Lake Garda.

33 J/70s and their crews began competing in their European Championship on 24th September. On the famously tactical race zone of Lake Garda, which is bordered by cliffs and is one of the breeziest spots in Europe, some 33 J/70 crews got together for the second edition of their European Championship with racing set to continue through until 27th September. After the first day's racing, the locals were leading hostilities, with Charlie Esse is lying in second place with an entirely amateur crew.
