The ICOM CUP opens the 2013 season for the Figaro class in the Mediterranean

First competition of the Figaro season in the Mediterranean, this solo-handed race will take place from 6 to 12 March between La Grande Motte and Marseille. Co-organized by Mathias Lallemand and the Mediterranean Training Centre (CEM), which is among Marinepool´s partners, the Icom Cup gives the opportunity to the skippers to perform a full-scale test before heading to the Atlantic, where most of the Figaro races are held.

12 skippers are expected on the start line including five foreigners. The Icom Cup, which is also a qualifying race for the famous Solitaire du Figaro next June, will combine inshore and offshore sailing with two long routes of 200 nautical miles between Marseille and La Grande Motte.

Marinepool is happy to partner the Icom Cup and reward the top 3 winners at the arrival on March 12th.
