Slow and steady wins the race…The Longtze European Tour had a gentle start : The Primo Cup-Trophée Crédit Suisse was sailed in a light but extremely technical and demanding breeze last weekend.  Nicolas Bérenger, skipper of   « 1 Maillot pour la Vie » with his faithful accomplices Sylvain Chtounder, Edouard Masse and Olivier Duthoit, took out the Monaco Longtze event and now lead the European circuit.  The second stage of the Longtze European Tour will take place in May at the Grand Prix de l’Ecole Navale.
