Serenity won the 6th edition of the Principality of Monaco Trophy – Classic Sailboats in the Laguna BNl – BNP Paribas Private Banking Cup, promoted by Anna Licia Balzan, Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco in Venice, and by the Principality’s Office of Tourism and Congress in Milan.
The Trophy, organized by the Venice Yacht Club and under the patronage of A.I.V.E., the Italian vintage sailboats association, was directed by Mirko Sguario, creator and organizer of many well-known regattas in Venice.
