Event: Monaco Classic Week 2009.
Date: 16-17-18-19-20 September 2009.
Monaco Classic Week plays host to the world’s finest sail ships in Port Hercule. Traditional yachts, period yachts and old motor-boats take to the water together, as in the “Belle Epoque”, while maintaining an authentic yachtsman’s spirit : such is the aim of the Monaco Classic Week.
The 2009 edition will celebrate the centenary of Tuiga, the Monaco Yacht Club’s splendid flagship.
On this occasion, the Yacht Club de Monaco intends to “suspend” the passage of time, in order to take the Quai Antoine 1er back to 1909 by recreating the atmosphere that prevailed here 100 years ago.
