Smeralda 888 – Match Racing – Monaco


Sunday 21st February 2021. The meeting had the air of a scaled-up warm-up in the run up to the 37th Primo Cup-Trophée Credit Suisse for the Smeralda 888 teams who kept up the pace this weekend at their Match Racing event. It has been ten years since the fleet competed in this format, similar to that of the America’s Cup.  In a game of one-on-one duels, Timofey Sukhotin (Beda), current champion of this class, lifted the cup. Francesco Vauban and his crew on Botta Dritta clinched 2nd, followed by Andréa Startari (Gorilla Gang). A great warm-up before the Primo Cup on 5-7 March.
