Offshore race heading east
In parallel to the contests in the bay, there will also be an offshore race from Monaco to Ventimiglia in Italy. Boats must comply with YCM Offshore Class requirements, which means being able to take three people and meet technical specifications defined in a collaboration with the UIM.
While the two harbours are set to be interconnected soon, this race presents a big test for renewable energy end-users. The value of the example will be as significant as the need is concrete.
“With this new route, the aim is to highlight the enormous potential of our young engineers supported by the shipyards. We have a common goal, which is to work together to build the leisure boats of tomorrow,” explains Marco Casiraghi, himself an engineer and the man behind this project.
