Stuart Jardine (SWE 5330)Â triumphs “with insolent ease.”Â Results here.
J/24 (11 registered) – 7 races of which 6 counted
Another class popular with society members of the YCM, the J/24 is one of the Primo Cupâ€™s original series. It was the J24 “dream team”, notably Stuart Jardine and Marianne Schoke, president of the Swedish class, who triumphed with insolent ease, providing a lesson to the others from Monaco and Italy. With four race victories, the Brit showed once again why he is an expert in this series, one that has been dear to him for several decades now. Of note was the presence of Anne Liardet, here to find out about the waters off Monaco: “Apart from the Tour de France, it is the first time that I have participated in a Mediterranean regatta. I was very surprised, very impressed. And then, what a beautiful fleet of Dragons. It was a superb spectacle and such a warm welcome!” commented the lady who is preparing for her next VendÃ©e Globe, which starts in November 2008.
