XIIe Palermo – MonteCarlo
21-26 August 2016 | Palermo – MonteCarlo
Organised by the Circolo della Vela Sicilia in collaboration with the Yacht Club de Monaco and Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the 12th edition of the Palermo-Montecarlo kicks off on 21st August in the Gulf of Mondello. For the first time the race has been included in the 9.5 Class circuit and is also one of four stages in the Mediterranean Maxi Offshore Challenge 2016, organised by the International Maxi Association (IMA).
A sign of true recognition. On the programme: 430nm with a passage gate off Porto Cervo before the fleet heads up the Corsican coast and across to Monaco for the finish. At least 40 entrants are expected on the start, with five flying the YCM flag. They include Orel Kalomeni, Roberto Lauro, Nico Poons and a team of youngsters from the Sports Section, not forgetting record holder Igor Simcic’s Esimit Europa 2 which will have its sights set on improving it.
