Monaco Optimist Team Race

January 2025

For the last 11 years, the team racing elite have descended on the Principality for the Monaco Optimist Team Race. All aged under-14, 18 teams of four compete on a level playing field. The round robin phase when all teams meet each other is followed by the quarter- then semi- then finals which are the highlight of the event. For all contestants the over-riding goal is to help their team win as many matches as possible to stay at the top of the leader board. Organised by Yacht Club de Monaco, the Monaco Optimist Team Race has become the benchmark for young teams from all over the world.

Inspired by the America’s Cup, match racing is a sport in its own right and it is this format that the Monaco Optimist Team Race has embraced. Teams of four from each nation go head to head with all the other teams in the round robin heats, at the end of which the best go through to the quarters and then semi-finals, before the grand finale on Sunday.

Final Smeralda 888

11-13 October 2024

Thanks to Adalberto Miani and class president, Charles de Bourbon des Deux-Siciles, the Smeralda 888 one-design class has an established Mediterranean circuit. It is unique in the sense that it offers international events in prestigious venues such as Saint-Tropez, Porto Cervo in Sardinia, Cannes and Monaco. Designed by German Frers, the Smeralda 888, at 8.88m in length with four crew, is quick, lively, pleasant to helm and a joy to watch being both elegant and competitive.

The boat handles well in a strong breeze and is nimble in very light winds. Tradition dictates that the Smeralda 888 International Championship ends with the final regatta being hosted by Monaco.

Under the impetus of Anne-Marie Winkler and Laila Schlereth, surrounded by numerous members of the ever-active German community, the Y.C.M. is decked out in white and blue to transform itself into a grand Bavarian brasserie. Every year, this event brings together some 500 Club members, all lovers of “good foam”, dressed in a “Dirndl”, an apron dress for the women and a “Lederhose” for the men…

YCM EXPLORER AWARDS
BY LA BELLE CLASSE SUPERYACHTS


YCM Explorer Awards by La Belle Classe Superyachts recognise owners who take their environmental responsibilities seriously. The major criteria for these awards are the owner’s conception of their superyacht, how they use it and what it can do for humanity. It could be a technical innovation that significantly reduces the yacht’s CO2 emissions, the assistance given to scientists, or just an ability to pass on and share adventures at sea so that many more people come to respect, love and protect the Ocean.
