The 38th edition of the West Liguria Winter Championship kicks off with the first stage: the TROPHEE GRIMALDI. The West Liguria Winter Championship, now in its 38th edition, resumes after a year of hiatus, on the weekend from 15 to 17 October. Almost forty registered crews and three ORC & IRC, RACING CLUB and Libera fleets. The level is very high especially in the ORC A class where 2 new Ceccarelli 50s, two Solaris 44s and the usual Swan 45s will compete for the title together with the new J112 Pingone di Mare IIII. First test over three days, the Trophee Grimaldi joins the coastal city with the new port of Cala del Forte in Ventimiglia and the Principality of Monaco. This by now traditional opening of West Liguria promises to be full of sporting and worldly news: In all ports the boats will be welcomed by cocktails or dinners for the pleasure of all the participants and the new routes will put the competing boats to the test. The Sanremo Yacht Club does not rest: in 10 days the Dragons will arrive at sea with the Italian Grand Prix & European GP Finals, a very high technical level regatta that sees the participation of athletes from as many as 12 Nations.
