37th Primo Cup-Trophée Credit Suisse (4-7 March 2021)


Friday 26th February 2021. Due to the covid-19 pandemic and to comply with the government’s latest guidelines, the 37th Primo Cup-Trophée Credit Suisse organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco from 4-7 March 2021 is now only open to member sailors in the Principality and will be contested exclusively in Monegasque territorial waters.


The YCM decided to adapt by maintaining this regatta, which has been held every year since 1985 and kick-starts the one design season in the Mediterranean, with a reduced format which allows local crews to sail in compliance with current health measures. Only two classes, both of which are very active in the Principality, will be competing from Friday 5th March with the first warning signal at 12 noon for the J/70s, united in the Monaco J/70 Class Association, and the Smeralda 888s. As every year, thanks to the support of long-time partner SLAM, the first three boats in each class of the Primo Cup-Trophée Credit Suisse will receive garments from the Italian supplier’s technical range.


In the interests of fair-play for the many international teams who usually descend on Monaco for the winter season, the results of the Primo Cup-Trophée Credit Suisse, which would normally also be the last act of the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series, will not count towards the final ranking for 2021. Only results from Act 1 in January (14-17) and Act 2 in February (4-7) will count. Prize-giving for the 2019-2020 Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series will take place remotely on Saturday 6th March at 7.00pm.
