The finale of the Italian J/70 Sailing League took place in the port of Portopiccolo in Trieste, Italy on the northeastern shores of the Adriatic Sea. A dozen teams participated in the regatta in very light, very difficult conditions; only three races were sailed for each team over the three-day weekend. Winning the regatta was the Italian Aeronautica Militare Team, comprised of Niccolò Bertola (helmsman), Giancarlo Simeoli (tactician), Marco Balbi (bow) and Giovanni Bannetta (trim). Behind the Aeronautica Militare, taking the silver was the Compagnia della Vela from Venezia, and taking the bronze was the Società Canottieri Garda Saló.
