Mare Nostrum is a series of swimming competitions with three meets around the Mediterranean culminating in the most famous one in Monaco at the Louis II stadium. 

The name Mare Nostrum is one of the special names given to the “Mediterranean” “our sea” and is where Princess of Monaco, “our Princess” as Charlene Wittstock won a gold medal in 2000 under the watchful eye of Prince Albert. See more swimming achievements of Princess Charlene below. 

The very best of the world swimmers just faced off in Monaco to celebrate this 40th edition with spectacular results.

Where is there space to stock essentials in Monaco? Space is at a premium in the Principality whether it be for private apartments, some of which have prices in the stratosphere… or for housing for Monegasques, a priority program that is also eating into the remaining square metres of space. 

It is easy to forget that space is needed for lower profile but vital needs. 

Where is food to be stocked for example, or for that matter anything that needs to be stored? 

It might surprise you that even Monte-Carlo itself has storage locations. In fact the Principality has not far off 60.000 square metres allocated to storage space, the bigger share being in Fontvieille.

It adds to the ease of sharing to have an App. And that’s where “Entreparents” comes in. Intuition led to a survey which unsurprisingly confirmed that the path to parenthood the first time round can be lonely and sometimes nerve-wracking. 

The App is free and reportedly sprouted from the efforts of four mothers from the Principality, Johanna, Clémence, Émilie and Anna.

With 23 races left, Charles Leclerc is not giving up just because of a bruising start to the season, sitting on only 34 points. Last season he finished a creditable second in the drivers’ championship and Ferrari second in the constructors’ championship.

But this season in the first 3 races alone buckets of points were lost: a mechanical problem in the first race, a penalty in the second, and a crash with Lance Stroll in the third.
