Monaco Classic Week 2015 - Highlights -Published on Nov 10, 2015

Around 1,000 participants on over 115 vessels took part in a memorable 12th Monaco Classic Week organized by the Yacht Club de Monaco and sponsored by Rolex. This biennial event showcases historical vessels that have left their mark on the Yacht Club de Monaco’s proud heritage, and the 2015 edition on 9–13 September attracted boats dating from 1885 all the way through to 1975. Over the course of the week, Monaco’s harbour becomes the focal point for exhibitions and competition – a cherished tradition and integral part of Monegasque culture.

Monaco Classic Week - La Belle Classe: "Organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco from 11-15 September 2013, Monaco Classic Week – La Belle Classe reflects Monaco’s unwavering attachment to the sea and its maritime heritage. Launched in 1994, this biennial event stands out in that it brings together in one harbour the full spectrum of boats of yesteryear, from the small recreational craft to the luxury units: classic sailing yachts, 12’ Dinghies, motorboats, and period motor-yachts. Between tradition and the art de vivre la mer lifestyle, this is a week for strolling along the southern quay of the YCM Marina to admire these dames from another era, all restored to their youthful prime by their owners." Results here.
