For a number of years, BENETEAU First 18 SE & Seascape18 racing season was comprised of a series of up to six regattas. After each season, we would get overall results based on combined rankings. All of this started with a fleet of one design enthusiasts sailing classes Justinten and Seascape18, hence the name Monocup.
As the Justinten fleet contracted, Monocup series unfortunately lost momentum as well. But as the number of BENETEAU First 18 SE & Seascape18 boats out there kept increasing, we decided it was time to reboot the racing series, add a few new features and rename it to ALPE ADRIA First 18 SE CUP.
So without further ado, Notice of Series can be found here. We included 5 regattas in the 2023 race calendar, three of which will be organized in Slovenia, one on beautiful Lake Traunsee in Austria, with a grand finale on Lake Garda. A lot of regional teams from Austria, Serbia and Slovenia already confirmed participation which promises a fantastic kick off series revival season. Next year, we are looking forward to also include a regatta in Germany and have an even stronger series with participants from many parts of Europe.
