Monaco Optimist Team Racing - Final

It was a full house for the Nordics with newcomers, the Bodensee YC Ueberlingen of Germany, dethroning Swiss title holders, Société Nautique de Genève.

“It’s the first time we’ve come and it has been a great regatta. It wasn’t easy every day, we had to fight hard but it was worth it,” beamed one of the German team’s members after prize-giving.

The Swedes from the Royal Swedish Yacht Club, also new to the event, were hard on their heels followed by the Finnish from Helsingfors Segelklubb.

The British team from Hayling Island SC finished seventh.

The programme proved intensive over the four days with no less than 150 races held.
