Keeping up the pace

They are the lifeblood of the Yacht Club de Monaco’s sports events, all the many volunteers who make up the Flotte des Commissaires which is so indispensable to the organisation.

Under the command of Rodolphe Bouquet, and supervised by Captains, new recruits are supported at every stage of their apprenticeship with a structure that teaches them the skills they need in the different sectors, such as race committee, safety, reception, registrations, etc.
