Monaco Optimist Team Race
Monaco | 14/01/2016 – 17/01/2016
By winning this 7th edition, the Société Nautique de Genève adds another victory to its tally, having won the first edition in 2010 of this event organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco with the support of FxPro, Eventica, Fon Bet, and clothing supplier SLAM which gave all competitors a garment at the prize-giving.
For this year’s regatta reserved for 16 teams of young sailors, all under 14, the YCM invited the most competitive clubs (11 countries) from as far afield as northern & eastern Europe (Russia & Croatia) and north Africa (Tunisia), as well as Spain, Italy and France. An original match race format for teams of four Optimists it brings to the fore not just the children’s technical prowess, but tactics and above all team-work.
