Top of the podium for Junda

Junda-Banca del Sempione finishes first in the 35th Primo Cup organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco, the fourth test in the J/70 Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series.

 

The 35th Primo Cup, organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco, concluded with a stunning performance by Junda-Banca del Sempione.

After battling it out in eight closely fought regattas between Friday 8 and Sunday 10 February, Junda seized a remarkable victory, beating the Irish and Russians at the finish line. 

 

This victory was made even more exciting by the fact that Junda-Banca del Sempione was in 3rd place after the first two days of competing. However, thanks to a perfect day on Sunday, it managed to claw back its disadvantage and finish up ahead of the rest. 

 

It was a truly international victory if we consider that 51 vessels from 12 different countries, crewed by around 500 sailors, lined up at the start of the 35th edition of this prestigious event held in Monaco. 

 

The Primo Cup was also the fourth test in the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series. As a result,  

thanks to yet another top-class performance, Junda-Banca del Sempione currently heads the leader board by a large margin.

 

The final act in the series is scheduled from 15 to 17 March, once again in the sea off Monte Carlo.
