Every year to close the season, HSH Prince Albert II pays tribute to the Club’s sailors at the YCM Awards for the Credit Suisse trophy which recognises young competitors in the Sports Section, as well as members and owner/helmsmen who are competing at the highest level.

Prizes are awarded in two categories: the YCM Youth Awards (Optimist, Laser, Kite and Nacra categories) and the YCM Awards for society members who have best defended the Club’s flag during the regatta season.

Palermo-Montecarlo

19-24 August 2022

Since its launch in 2005 on the initiative of Circolo della Vela Sicilia President Angelo Randazzo, the Palermo-Montecarlo quickly established itself as a Mediterranean classic, with its 500nm course that continues to attract a growing number of entrants.

For seasoned sailors like Mauro Pelaschier, Jochen Schümann, Francesco Bruni, Philippe Monnet and Brad Butterworth, four-time America’s Cup winner, it’s a race against the clock to beat the record; for others it is an adventure over several days at nights at sea with family and friends.

Monaco Energy Boat Challenge

3-8 July 2023

Organised since 2014 by the Yacht Club de Monaco, in collaboration with the International Powerboating Federation (UIM) and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge is unique in the world.

More than a century after the first international powerboat meetings were launched in 1904, the YCM is reviving a tradition by leaving the field wide open to innovation and the imaginations of young engineers, working hand in hand with experienced manufacturers. Their goal is to develop alternative propulsion systems, using only clean energy sources to power the yachting of tomorrow. A real technological challenge to meet the energy needs of the leisure boat and shipping industries and the accompanying environmental prerogatives.

In preparation for the Monaco Optimist Team Race, and keen for our young sailors to forge links with those from foreign clubs, the Yacht Club de Monaco launched the Mediterranean Monaco Optimist & Laser Academy in 2017. Combining a regatta and training, the concept allows coaches to go alongside during races to give advice and tips. An original format, it has attracted clubs from all over the world, with nearly a hundred young racers aged under 14.

Monaco Classic Week

13-16 September 2023

This biennial event, which is the first gathering in the world to honour sailing and motor boats, bears witness to the Yacht Club de Monaco’s unfailing attachment to the maritime heritage of sailing. Echoing the first motorboat meetings in 1904, this event is the only one to bring together the most beautiful traditional sailing boats, with vintage motor-yachts and old motorboats, to which a fleet of 12′ Dinghies has been added for four the last editions.

Porto Cervo - Monaco IMA 24H challenge

11-12 September 2022

As entries roll in for September’s Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (4-10 September 2022), the pinnacle event of the maxi racing calendar, the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the Yacht Club de Monaco and the International Maxi Association have joined forces to create a new event that owners and crews can use to return their Maxis to the European mainland.

The race format for the Porto Cervo-Monaco IMA 24 Hour Challenge is simple, but unique. Competitors will set sail from Porto Cervo at 11.00am on Sunday, 11 September, the day after the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup has concluded. The course will take the maxis to Monaco, but aside from this is left open.

Prize-giving will be on Monday 12th September 2022 at 7.00pm, an opportunity for owners to see all their crew again in the exclusive private setting of the YCM, before they go back out to sea heading for Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez.
