Optimist Southern League Regatta – Antibes | 11-12 March 2023

Sunday 12th March 2023. More than 130 contestants made the trip to line up on the start of this Southern League regatta. They included 12 young sailors from Yacht Club de Monaco (six Minime and six Benjamin), ready to give it their all for this the first meeting of the season for most of them.

With a steady but light 4 knot breeze, contestants had to be patient but determined with only the youngest group completing a race. The Monegasque results were up to expectations with Joséphine Dobbelaere coming in an excellent 7th in the overall ranking, 3rd in the girls. Pietro Carlevaris came 11th overall and 1st of the 2014 year, Facundo Rubinelli 17th ahead of Louis Pompée 27th, Jules Huon 34th and Mona Benchekroun, 36th.
