Courses to suit all levels 

Prince Rainier III founded the YCM’s Sailing Division in 1970.  All year round the Sailing School teaches and coaches young sailors as part of the National Education Department’s policy and the Club’s own sailing programme, from beginners to competition level.  Be it on Optimists, Bugs, ILCA or J/70s, not only does a qualified team of instructors and coaches teach them sailing but also the importance of protecting the marine environment.

Many of the world’s most prestigious private yachts fly the Yacht Club de Monaco’s burgee, testimony to its unique position on the international yachting scene.

Allow me to express a very sincere wish that the Yacht Club de Monaco fulfil its mission as a link between people who love the sea, that it serves the interests

— Prince Rainier III

To be a member of the Yacht Club de Monaco is above all a commitment. It is a desire to preserve a certain ethic, both on land and on the water, and to foster a respect for naval etiquette and preservation of the environment. The Yacht Club de Monaco’s philosophy is based on the need to perpetuate but also to pass on a heritage, inherited from our ancestors, to ensure that the Yacht Club remains a lively and progressive place.

In accordance with its statutes, the YCM is enabling the Club to fulfil its missions: on one hand as a private Club, dedicated exclusively to its 2,500 members (80 nationalities), and on the other by reinforcing its role as a nautical hub for the port and catalyst for the yachting industry, with a range of new spaces available for events.

The YCM fully intends to contribute to the Principality’s attractiveness, by offering owners and professionals in the sector a new tool to promote Monaco’s reputation, the ultimate goal being to make Monaco the world capital of yachting.
