Since Thursday, some 80 boats have been moored in Monaco for the Primo Cup – Trophée Credit Suisse. Mid-way through the event the final rankings are shaping up after four races for the five classes in competition.  

 

 

In the Melges 20, the YCM’s Ludovico Fassitelli (Junda) is currently in 4th just five points adrift of the Russian Alex Team who top the provisional ranking.  In the J/70 where some 40 boats are battling it out for supremacy, the stakes are high with the Swiss from CDE in the lead this evening, with one point separating CH from the Monegasques on Ponante.

 

 

Shifty winds demanded total concentration and proved a nerve-wracking day that smiled on some, including Italian Roberto Benamati, former World Champion in the Star who won three races.  In the Smeralda 888, the YCM’s Timofey Sukhotin dominated on Beda.

And last but not least, everyone was delighted to see the return of the 7m Longtze Premier, a reference in Europe, which tonight sees Steffen Schneider’s Swiss team in 1st place.

Rendezvous tomorrow Sunday from 11.00am for the final day of racing.
