La Fraglia Vela Riva ha fin da subito creduto nella classe monotipo J70, tanto da mettere a calendario già nella scorsa stagione l’Eurocup di questo ottimo scafo votato tra le migliori barche del 2013. Vero e proprio boom negli USA quest’anno anche in Europa dovrebbe essere consegnato un buon numero di barche per poter cominciare a regatare con una flotta consistente e agguerrita.
Fraglia Vela Riva has always believed in the mono-type J70 class, voted among the best boats of 2013, so much so that this year's Eurocup has been on the calendar since last season. The popularity of this keel boat has well and truly boomed in the USA and here in Europe we should see a sizeable number for a consistent and competitive fleet.
