With a particularly impressive performance, the Skipper NC 100R racing boat, with  Alain Coppens as pilot and Francis Ciccio Notschaele as co-pilot, won the 1st place in the world championship which was held in Lake Como on 15-17 September 2017.


With outstanding performance in all the three races in which it took part, the Skipper’s team (Silver Racing Team 888), managed to win the world champion's trophy at the Endurance B World Championship - Class S1, honouring Greece and at the same time highlighting the high level of Greek shipbuilders.

After the international award of Skipper NC 100S for the design with the honourable title of ‘REDDOT AWARD’ personally received by Alexandros Stavroulakis, the Belgian Silver Racing Team 888 follow with a series of great success which with the specially designed boat Skipper NC 100R managed to break down any success record.
