A challenging finale awaited the 75 international teams competing in the first weekend of the Primo Cup – Trophée Cup Suisse. Alongside the 22 IRC boats, one-designs (Smeralda 888, Surprise, Star and SB20) have enjoyed a full programme of no less than six races over the three days.  “It is always a great regatta. The Primo is a chance for us to get together at the start of the season – the battle begins here in a good atmosphere,” said the Swiss Etienne David, winner of the Surprise class, after the prize-giving when every member of the winning teams received items of Advanced Technology garments from YCM’s loyal partner SLAM.

For the last day one race was enough in the challenging conditions, with a brisk 15 gusting 18-knot north-easterly and big swell ensuring a fine spectacle. There was only one course of action: not to relax for a second as there was a high price to pay for the slightest error.
