Passion braves the waves with the unfurled sails of Jrata 414!

Categories: Yachting
We at Lechler are deeply convinced that passion must be encouraged and supported with every device available. Hence, Stoppani is once again the technical sponsor of the new challenges faced by Jrata 414.
2015 is another year that witnesses our role as technical sponsor of Jrata 414 with our STOPPANI paints to help Riccardo Giuliano's dream come true, precisely his participation in Transat 6.50, 2015 edition.
Maintenance and restyling works commenced in February to prepare Jrata 414 for the new adventures that lie ahead. Sanding was followed by a complete cycle of the latest Plaster 5000, an Epoxy Plus Primer, and Isofan Marine Primer, Basecoat and Clearcoat. The aesthetic effect was deemed to be of the utmost importance; hence the use of special high sparkle paints and a clear Isofan Marine UV Filter finish mixed with a non-slip compound. Noa Noa Endurance, a Resolution Primer, was chosen for the hull. It is the new Stoppani hard matrix antifouling paint that conveys, with the controlled release of its active ingredients, effective protection, and ensures excellent performance for races.
Transat 6.50 is a solo transatlantic yacht race that covers over 4,000 nautical miles. It is held every two years on 6.50 m long Mini Yachts. Boats depart from the Port of Douarnenez in Brittany and reach Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadalupe, with just one stop in Lanzarote. It is a genuine, fascinating, spectacular "adventure" that is also packed with fearful dangers. 
The goal is extremely challenging, and the commitment demanded of Riccardo is considerable. As a matter of fact, besides practising and maintenance work on the boat, admission to the race requires participants to run a regatta of 1,000 nautical miles, including at least one mile solo and another 1,000 miles non-stop. 
In March, Riccardo qualified in the Arcipelago 650, and in April in the Grand Prix d’Italia Mini 6.50 but the schedule envisages demanding challenges that will be held until September. We hope that his sacrifices will win him a place in the starting line of Transat 6.50.

Good luck, Riccardo. Stoppani is cheering for you, and we shall follow your progress bowline after bowline. 

Good wind!
