In this category, Sir Irvine Laidlaw from the Yacht Club de Monaco clinched 2nd place aboard his Highland Fling 18. In the Super Maxi, Claus Peter Offen (Y3K) also from YCM put in a superb performance to stand on the podium’s top step . Finally in the Maxi A, Leopard 3 representing Monaco finished 2nd with Benoît de Froidmont and his Wallyno coming 5th in the Maxi C.
