Organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco another successful edition of the Monaco Optimist Team Race (MOTR) captured the sailing community’s attention this month.
This race has become an icon in the team event season.

Did you know that Monaco actually manages to do that within its urban confines showing how sustainability and integration in an urban environment can be managed.

The fifth Rocher Trophy for dancing couples has just taken place at Espace Leo-Ferré.
We used to think of this as coming under the genre of ballroom dancing but definitely no more: these days it is an exciting cross between an Olympic-style sport and Dancing with the Stars; peaks of athleticism combine with grace and glitter.
