PALERMO-MONECARLO 2016: OVERALL VICTORY TO SCRICCA

960 640 Millenium Tech

After the outstanding victory at the Giraglia Rolex Cup 2016, Scricca achieves another success, winning the “Angelo Randazzo Trophy” for the ORC Overall victory at the 12° Edition of the Palermo-Montecarlo regatta.

This was an unusual edition, characterised by summer breezes and by a storm on the second night of the race. The Comet 38 S, owned by Leonardo Servi, with a full set of Millenium Carbon and Millenium Monolithic sails, faced a challenging regatta: the crew sailed for 400 miles close to the wind, where the shape-holding and the rigidity of Monolithic technology made a difference.
The crew: Franco Manzoli, Matteo Teglia, Ivan Scimonelli, Claudio Arborea, Giuseppe Filippis, Roberto Innamorato and Marco Attanasio.

Followiong Scricca, Lunatika (Sun Fast 3600) and Be Wild (Swan 42). Line honours to Rambler, which wins the “Tasca d’Almerita Trophy”.

The Palermo-Montecarlo regatta, which started last Sunday from Mondello Gulf, is organized by Circolo della Vela Sicilia, Yacht Club de Monaco and Costa Smeralda Yacht Club. The yachts registered were 57, representing 11 countries (Italy, France, Monaco, Germany, Spain, UK, Malta, Turkey, Russia and Hungary). The regatta is in the FIV Italian Offshore Championship and is in the IMA (International Maxi Association) calendar from last year, together with the Rolex Middle Sea Race, the Volcano Race and the Giraglia Rolex Cup.

The Millenium Technology Center congratulates and thanks the owner and the crew for the excellent result.
