Mariquita, winner of Monaco Classic Week by Hublot

Sep '05
Watchmaker Hublot announced the winner of the Monaco Classic Week 2005.

An exceptional vintage, with a record attendance of five J Class yachts alongside thirty or so traditional sailing and motor yachts, in the presence of Dennis Conner and Brad Butterworth, who left their stamp on the history of the Americas' Cup, a moving tribute to Carlo Riva, Il Ingeniere di Sarnico, elected Personality of the Sea 2005, and a new prestige partner for the Yacht Club of Monaco: the renowned Swiss watchmaker and Official Timekeeper – Hublot.

The sea demands excellence, and this seventh edition undeniably followed in that tradition with the creation of the Belle Classe, a club for yacht owners that share a passion for traditional yachting and a determination to preserve these boats, steeped in history, for future generations. SS Delphine, a 1921 Steam Ship, was awarded the first Belle Classe Prize.

Traditional Yachts: An Exceptional Turnout For A Five-Day Regatta
Monaco Classic Week – Belle Classe, which instigates the original idea of bringing together traditional sailing yachts, vintage motor yachts and motor launches in the same port, also provides an opportunity to see them on the water. In the Epoque category, victory went to the gaff-rigged cutter Pesa (1911) from Brittany, with its owner Jean-Yves Roubinet at the helm.

Although smaller than the other two gaff cutters, with a length of 15.73 metres, it dominated the field. Tuiga, the 15-metreJI owned by the Yacht Club of Monaco, helmed by Dennis Conner, took second place on the podium.
