Monaco Yacht Club Celebrates its 70th Anniversary with a Summer Cocktail

Particularly special this year… the summer cocktail, much anticipated, dovetailed with the 70th anniversary celebrations of the Yacht Club, whose birth year is 1953

Every occasion at the Yacht Club in 2023 is naturally turning into a double celebration often made extra special by the presence of the Sovereign, who on this occasion was surrounded by about 1500 members

A perfect time to remember Prince Albert’s father, Rainier III, who was energized to bring together all those who love the sea in a unique Club within the Principality. Prince Albert speaks proudly of his father’s vision to make the YCM an exclusive place where yachting is lived, enjoyed and celebrated, thus contributing to the promotion of Monaco as a global destination. And the tribute to Prince Rainier continues with praise for his acumen in creating the Yacht Club to preserve and pass on maritime traditions, while promoting innovation and the development of yachting. 

And, as if standing on Prince Rainier’s shoulders, Prince Albert has placed priority on protecting the oceans first and foremost bringing environmental issues to the fore as a priority. In effect the Principality is a beacon for the nautical industry, acting as a catalyst in environmental transition. 

More and more the Monaco Yacht Club members have become demonstrators of new eco-responsible solutions played out through the theme “Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting”. 

High profile also and a regular reminder of the impetus towards green innovation is the 10th Monaco Energy Boat Challenge, from July 3rd to 8th. 

Hundreds of young engineers representing 25 nations and 25 universities are gathering to meet industry professionals. Such key players as Oceanco, Ferretti, Sanlorenzo, Lürssen, Monaco Marine and Palumbo SY Refit take part. 

Hardly a quarter goes by when The Yacht Club de Monaco is not able to find an opportunity to continue radiating the message to protect the environment. On September 24th and 25th, YCM is hosting the 3rd Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina Rendezvous. The specific aim of the event is to present innovative solutions for the development of virtuous marinas.

The YCM plays a powerful role as an ambassador carrying its values high through its high profile record-breaking international exploits of icons such as Malizia-Seaexplorer of Team Malizia, founded by Pierre Casiraghi, vice-president of the Yacht Club of Monaco. Having just finished The Ocean Race, the IMOCA will stop in Monaco on July 5th. 

Tuiga, the flagship of the YCM, another ambassador is fresh from a campaign and will play its role in the next Monaco Classic Week-La Belle Classe, from September 13th to 16th. 

Thirty new members were able to enjoy this summer members’ cocktail. They can now join in and encourage distinguished athletes like Alexander Ehlen, seeking to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics. 

The Sovereign took the opportunity to congratulate Peter Harburg, recent winner of the 70th Rolex Giraglia. The two gold medals obtained at the Games of the Small States by the laserist Noah Garcia and by Boris Jeremenko, head valet of the YCM also received praise.
