‘With its new building, Yacht Club de Monaco is set to become the hub for all nautical activities in Monaco, so an event like this will be a great addition to our existing calendar of events. One hundred years on and history is repeating itself! It’s a very exciting project as it involves a major shift and a very practical innovation to take the yachting industry forward, something Monaco has always been aware of in order to support Yachting evolution.’
Bernard d’Allesandri, General Secretary
Founded in 1953 by Prince Rainier and presided over by HSH Prince Albert II since 1984, the Yacht Club de Monaco brings together more than 1300 members from 60 nationalities.
The philosophy of the Yacht Club de Monaco is based on the desire to preserve a certain ethic, both on land and on the water, and to foster a respect for naval etiquette and preservation of the environment.
2014 will see the Yacht Club moving into new premises upon the completion of its new Lord Foster-designed clubhouse. This nautical hub is set to become a real centre for all nautical activities and will no doubt contribute to the Principality’s prestige. An ambitious and highly symbolic project, it promises to be a superb showcase to position Monaco as capital of yachting in the third millennium.
