The Monaco Yacht Club will host the official opening of the 2018 Nations Trophy Mediterranean League, from March 27-31, for the Swan One Design classes, ClubSwan 50-ClubSwan 42-Swan 45.

They will compete to conquer the first leg of a new circuit, according to clubracer.eu.

Monaco Swan One Design is offering to every competing Swan Owner a four-day programme of high-end racing and prestigious social occasions. One design racing is all about strategy, tactics, crew work, and sailing technique, since the yachts are the same design.

“We are very glad to have such an important Yacht Club as partner of our Swan One Design regattas. The Nations Trophy Med league couldn’t have a better christening,” said Leonardo Ferragamo, Nautor’s Swan Group Executive Chairman.

“Sharing timeless values with the Swan series, a subtle essence of elegance and performance, the Yacht Club de Monaco is pleased to open its doors to this prestigious class” said Bernard d’Alessandri, General Secretary of the MYC.

The Mediterranean League will continue with some classic Med rendezvous: SailRacing Palmavela, organised in early May by the RCNP in Palma de Mallorca; the Giraglia Rolex Cup, organised in mid-June by the YCI and featuring dedicated windward-leeward races off St-Tropez along with a special prize for the Offshore race; and closing in Palma de Mallorca at the beginning of August with the legendary Copa del Rey also organised by RCNP.

The prize-giving for TNT Mediterranean League will be in Porto Cervo during the 20th edition of the Rolex Swan Cup, scheduled for September 9-16, 2018.
