After two days of exhibition races, nine two-person crews set sail for the Monaco Globe Series on Sunday 3 June at 1pm.  The brand new 1,300-mile race in the Mediterranean is organized by the Monaco Yacht Club for the first time in its history.

The Globe Series is an event of international stature and also count as a qualifier for the Vendée Globe.  HSH Prince Albert II, who launched the 2016-2017 Vendée Globe, signaled the start of the Monaco Globe Series from the M/Y Pacha III, an elegant 36 metre motor-yacht built in 1936 by Camper & Nicholsons.

The fleet set sail along the Western coast of Corsica before entering the Strait of Bonifacio, between Corsica and Sardinia, and heading for Sicily. Participants will then point their bows towards the Balearics before sailing back to the Principality of Monaco.

The Monaco Globe Series is a mixed-race, with three IMOCAs sailed by women. Aboard the Monin, Isabelle Joschke was joined by Alain Gautier, winner of the 1992-1993 Vendée Globe.

Leading up to the 2020-2021 Vendée Globe, two races will take place each year. For 2018, the second race in the Globe Series will be the prestigious Route du Rhum.
