Venice, Mariska beats Tuiga and is the queen of the sea in San Marco

With the ‘Principality of Monaco’ Trophy, a historic weekend for the lagoon ended: twenty-seven boats built between the 1900s and the early 2000s challenged each other under the eyes of thousands of spectators, giving prestige to the city

The history of the city of Venice met and challenged in a weekend where vintage sails, the queens of the sea, competed in front of San Marco. It was the IX Principality of Monaco Trophy, a competition organized in collaboration with the Yacht Club Venezia and the Sailing Club Il Portodimare: twenty-seven boats built between 1908 and the 2000s lined up on the starting line on Saturday. Ciao Pais (1944) stood out among the vintage boats; among the classic boats, Naïf (1973) won. Still among the Classics, but in Class 1, Tuiga’s success (1909), while among the Classics in Class 2 the victory went to Capriccio (1970); among the Passere, first place in Barcolana 50 (2018).


On Sunday afternoon, a spectacular match race was added to the regattas scheduled in the program, which saw Tuiga and Mariska confronting each other in a memorable duel in the San Marco basin with the latter that started upwind, maintained the advantage until the finish line and then won the race and thus becoming the new queen of the sea in San Marco. “For this ninth edition of the Trophy we had the honor and privilege of having Tuiga among the participants who with the Mariska gave life to a unique challenge”, underlines Anna Licia Balzan Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco in Venice. “Great satisfaction, this is a strong incentive to give the city an event in line with the objective that Venice must have in order to present itself to the world”, comments the President of the Yacht Club Venezia Mirko Sguario. The event then ended in the Arsenale with the awarding of the winning vintage sails. The awards were made by Giancarlo Signoretto, great name of Murano glassmaking and by his assistant, Agnese Tegon, the only woman to have given an important turning point to a tradition handed down for 1000 years now. The prize for the runner-up in the Tuiga vs Mariska match race was made by the CAM glass factory in Murano.
