    A sun-filled, blue-sky day at the Monaco Swan One Design, hosted by the Yacht Club de Monaco, failed to produce the wind the event so richly deserved at the close of a stop-start week.

  • Monaco Swan One Design
    Ice

    The second day of racing at the 2019 Monaco Swan One Design ended in disappointment for the competing crews, despite the best efforts of the Yacht Club de Monaco Race Committee; the sole race of the day abandoned just before the second windward mark. The YCM had kept everyone ashore while waiting for the breeze to fill in and a start was eventually organized at 14.45. Frustratingly, the stability of the already fragile wind deteriorated sufficiently during the race for the officials to call a halt and send the yachts home for the day. Racing is planned to resume tomorrow.

    2019 Monaco Swan One Design opened today with a single race. The Yacht Club de Monaco Race Committee, led by Ariane Mainemare, managing the sole opportunity presented by today’s less than promising conditions. The racing proved close across the three classes. The top guns were: Dmitry Rybolovlev’s Skorpios in ClubSwan 50, Luis Senis’ Porron IX in Swan 45 and Lorenzo Mondo’s Far Star in ClubSwan 42. In The Nations Trophy standings, Italy leads from Switzerland and Russia.
