Grimaldi Trophy 2019

 

Some 40 boats competed in the season-closer Grimaldi Trophy, an inshore race between Sanremo and Monaco, organised by the Yacht Club Sanremo and Yacht Club de Monaco.

Taking part for the first time, the YCM’s flagship Tuiga, skippered by Daniel Perreira with Beppe Zaoli at the helm and a crew of YCM members, won in the IRC category with victory in the ORC going to Italian Paolo-Bruno Bonomo’s boat, Aurora.

 

Meanwhile, YCM member Guido Miani completed the course in the fastest time, crossing the finish in Monaco to set a new record of 1 hour 20 minutes on his M32 (9.68m) monohull catamaran.The Race Committee were forced to cancel the return contest today, Sunday, due to particularly difficult conditions that included a hailstorm in the forecast.

 

 

Countdown to Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series 2019-2020

 

There’s no let up for racers, as the clock ticks down to the start of the 2019-2020 Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series which kicks off next weekend.

Launched by the Yacht Club de Monaco in 2013, the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series offers monthly one-design regattas that attract teams from all over Europe to train in the Bay of Monaco, the highlight being the 36th Primo Cup – Trophée Credit Suisse (6-9 February 2020).

Alongside Melges 20s, that have been in from the start thanks to Valentin Zavadnikov, is the championship’s flagship J/70 class with some 40 boats expected for Act 1 from 7-10 November. The Principality boasts one of the largest fleets in the Mediterranean with 20 boats grouped in the J/70 Monaco Class Association.

As Monaco is set to host the J/70 World Championship 18-23 October 2021, the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series will be an ideal training base.
