THE FIRST DAY OF RACING IN THE SOLAR1 MONTE CARLO CUP 2014
In the first day of competition, the Fleet race saw the three classes in strong competition with each other. The sun was strong and the water was slightly choppy, a regular day for most boats but still challenging for boats raced previously on lakes or along waterways.
