Cinq classes et plus de 90 unités sur le pont de cette 35e édition

 

The 35th Primo Cup-Trophée Credit Suisse kicked off in style today with a 10-12 knot south-westerly, much to the delight of the almost 100 boats in five one-design classes (J/70, Melges 20, Smeralda 888, H22 and Longtze Premier). The Yacht Club de Monaco’s Race Committee headed by Thierry Leret completed three races.

 

 

In the J/70s, the Brazilians from Iate Clube do Rio de Janeiro, led by Mario Soerensen Garcia (Mandachuva), top the leaderboard this evening in the provisional ranking, ahead of the Russian boat Maria helmed by Andrei Malygin, a regular of the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series, organised by the YCM from October to March. 

Stage local Ludovico Fassitelli (Junda – Banca del Sempione) is lying 3rd ahead of the Swiss Thomas Studer (Jerry), having won the second race of the day.

 

 

In the H22, expect a fierce battle to the top between Roberto Iorio (Splinter) and Benedetto di Venosa (Adreanalina) who dominated today’s races and this evening are equal on points.

 

 

In the Smeralda 888, with two race wins, Vincenzo Onorato (Mascalzone Latino) is on equal points ahead of Timofey Sukhotin (Beda). But one cannot discount the determination and consistency of class president, Charles de Bourbon des Deux-Siciles (Vamos mi amor) who posted a 3-2-3 today and is already lying 3rd just one point behind the two leaders.

 

 

In the Longtze Premier, popular with the Italians, Jarmo Wieland (Shensu) kept a podium position throughout the day with a 3-2-1 and leads the provisional ranking ahead of the German Thomas Begher (Corvus), winner of the second race.

 

 

Valentin Zavadnikov dominated in the Melges 20 and tops the provisional ranking with two race wins.  It’s true that this YCM member, who initiated the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series in 2013, knows the always highly tactical Monegasque race area well.

 

Racing starts again tomorrow at 11.00am.
