Sailing / Yacht Club
Founded in 1953 by Prince Rainier and presided over by HSH Prince Sovereign Albert II since 1984, the Yacht Club de Monaco brings together more than 1200 members from 60 nationalities. 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. 2014 will see the yacht club moving into new premises upon the completion of its new Lord Norman Foster-designed clubhouse. This nautical hub is set to become a real centre for all nautical activities and will no doubt contribute to the Principality’s prestige. An ambitious and highly symbolic project, it promises to be a superb showcase for Monaco in the third Millenium.
