The ADH Inotec team wishes all leisure and pleasure sailors , racers, amateurs of speed and fun, and multihull lovers, a Diamolical year full of pure, shared pleasure on water as well as on the hard !
This three hulled season will be starting as early as 12th february with the Primo Cup : a prestigeous « first » for the Diam 24 od class ! For this occasion, the DBox will begin its task of transporting Diam 24 od’s to Monaco.
In one months time, the Diam 24od will be on starting blocks for the 2016 season. From 12th to 16th february, the one design trimaran will participate for the first time in the prestigeous and sporting event in Monaco : the Primo Cup. For this special occasion, a fleet of 5-6 crews will participate.
Monaco welcomes you
At the time of year when winter depressions arrive one after the other and gale force winds , sometimes violent, and ruthless rain sweep over the Atlantic coast, its nicer to sail under the milder skies of the south …… All works better under the sun.
The Primo Cup will also be the occasion for the Diam 24 od’s to sail side by side with other one design fleets such as the J70’s, the Melges 20, the Platu 25 and the Longtze sportsboats. The crews of these keeboats will no doubt have an eye open for the performances of our small trimaran.
For this first edition, the Monaco Yacht Club will welcome the Diam 24 od crews for free during the week preceding and the weeks following the event. A time in which to train or simply leisure sail in the mild mediterranean climate.
For those interested, the race notice is accessible on the link below :
The DBox at your service
The concept has been in the making since the conception of the Diam 24od. The DBox makes up part of the « practical environment » of this one design trimaran. Each boat fits into a « box » which itself can be lodged into a lorry that can transport six at a time.
This service of group transportation will be available at the beginning of this year. It is time and trouble saving, minimizes pollution and money for the racers. A convoy will leave Britanny 8 to 10 days prior to the Primo Cup – and there are 6 places available.
So – get organized ! 2016 is going to be a fun year in the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, in Switzerland and in the West Indies. ….. See you soon on the water !
