ABOUT THE YACHT CLUB DE MONACO
With its new facilities designed by Lord Foster to host regattas, the Yacht Club de Monaco is fast establishing itself as an instigator of high level events by organising an international meeting in collaboration with World Sailing at least once a year. The 2,000 members from 68 nationalities who are the lifeblood of the Club love it, with many involved in the smooth running of these events in the “Flotte des Commissaires”. ‎

In accordance with its statutes, this exclusive private Club has a three-pronged mission. A prime function is to bring life to the harbour by organising regattas and other nautical events all year round. It is also a catalyst for the international yachting scene. And last but by no means least it has the resources to satisfy and develop the passion for yachting of its members and owners calling into the Principality
