In Monaco more than a thousand competitors, from the fiercest professional sailors to the sunday yachting amateurs, divided in thirteen classes and representing about twenty nations have gathered for the famous Primo Cup - Trophée Credit Suisse, the biggest gather of monotypes in the Mediterranean Sea. The event is going to last for two weeks with different classes racing each week. Carlo Borlenghi sent me some pictures.
