It’s remarkable that the 24–14 victory brought the Monegasques the title of champions exactly on Monaco’s National day!

Words of Wisdom in Monaco with Anne Vitrant
In March 2023, the traditional Aïcha des Gazelles rally was held in southern Morocco — the one and only rally exclusively reserved for women. It started off on March 4th, from the Princely Palace square in Monaco. The Provence — Alpes — Côte-d’Azur team was entirely and enthusiastically supported by Prince Albert II. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco personally wished success to the two brave women — Anne Vitrant from Vallauris and Isabelle Bargoin from Port-de-Buc.
This year, well before the start, Anne Vitrant gave an exclusive interview to HelloMonaco. It was all about taking on the desert and all the challenge that entails, her determination to leave her comfort zone and reasons for always remaining optimistic.
