21st to 26th August 2016

After a triumphant Rambler 88 crossed the line first late Tuesday evening, 18 others arrived one after the other throughout Wednesday and into the night. At the last count (Wednesday 24th August, 8.00pm) of the 57 boats in competition for the 12th Palermo-Montecarlo 19 had crossed the line and were moored up in the YCM Marina, 20 had been forced to abandon the race and 18 are still racing.

Among them is Yacht Club de Monaco, the Club’s J111 which arrived in Port Hercule at 6.04pm, finishing 15th in real time but still with a chance of a spot on the podium in corrected time.

The team, led by Jacopo Carrain, comprised Juan Alberto Casalone‎, ‎Martina Petrella and ‎Rémi Piazza, three young sailors taught by the YCM’s Sports Section, assisted on tactics by Pietro d’Ali, with Giuseppe Leonardi (Number 1), and Enrico Zennaro and Filippo La Mantia (trimmers).

This 500nm offshore race, organised in collaboration with the Circolo della Vela Sicilia was a unique opportunity for this new generation to learn from experienced sailors, a transmission of knowhow in line with La Belle Classe Academy, a training centre set up by the YCM to promote the development of yachting professions.

Another source of satisfaction on the Monaco side was the 4th place in real time of the futuristic Infinity, the only foiling mono-hull produced in a series, designed by YCM member Gordon Kay, which arrived late morning on Wednesday.

Competitors still in the race continue their route to Monaco where the prize-giving will be held on Friday 26th August at 7.30pm at the Yacht Club de Monaco.
