“A big thank you to the Yacht Club de Monaco for this initiative to celebrate 80 years of the Dragon, a series close to my heart, by organising this special event for the occasion,” commented Prince Henrik of Denmark, whose boat White Lady won the last race of the day. The prince however did not sail himself as he preferred to stay ashore at the Yacht Club.

Anatoly Loginov proved to have the best overall score; he won the event just ahead of the Dane Jens Christensen. His prize was a Hublot watch, presented to him by Princess Camilla of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies, wife of the Duke of Castro.

Prince Charles de Bourbon-Sicilies won three of the five races, with François Brenac as tactician. ‘I am very proud of this victory, because we have been trying to lift this title for the last four years with this team,’ the prince declared.

The second part of the 25th Primo Cup will be organised from 12 to 15 February 2009.
