Société Générale’s all-female crew take out win

By Cassandra Tanti - June 12, 2019

Key players in Monaco’s banking sector have turned out in force for the Challenge Inter-Banques-Trophée ERI organised by the Yacht Club of Monaco under the patronage of Monaco for Finance (AMAF – Association Monégasque des Activités Financières).

For the 2019 edition, 40 employees divided into eight teams represented their respective establishments for a weekend of friendly competition on the sea.

Reserved exclusively for banks and financial institutions, the event is designed to reinforce team spirit.

Two days of racing on J/70s, made available free of charge by boat owners in the J/70 Monaco Class Association, were on the programme the weekend of 8th and 9th June.

A consistent performance by Marco Ardigo’s crew (Credit Suisse) with two 2nd places was not enough. Having won the first race and clinching a convincing 3rd in the second, the trio of Société Générale ladies succeeded in taking the title off Credit Suisse, which had won the event for the last two years.

Julius Baer completed the podium. Note that their team included two young sailors from the YCM’s Sports Section, Jeremy Moutout and Juan Casalone, who are currently working at the Swiss institution.
