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.

Palermo-Montecarlo

20-25 August 2024

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

1-6 July 2024

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.
