Optimist Coach Regatta Marseille – 5th edition – 22-23 January 2022 

Sunday 23rd January 2022. No downtime for Yacht Club de Monaco’s youngest racers who were back out competing this weekend after finishing 7th a few days ago in the Monaco Optimist Team Race.

It was all happening in Marseille where the 5th Optimist Coach Regatta Marseille was an opportunity for 150 young athletes to improve their skills with two days of training sessions held in the form of a regatta, where coaches are allowed to encourage and advise their charges during races. The format is similar to the Monaco Optimist and Laser Academy held in November in the Principality.

In the Elite group, there were eight races. Ludovica Bonelli came 38th ahead of Alexandra Santelli in 45th who also clinched 1st place in the Benjamin (12-13 year-olds) category. Matteo Asscher finished 46th.

In the Espoir group, Roman Lampert came 41st after seven races.
