Formula One represents the pinnacle of motor sport where the best drivers in the world battle it out to win the World Championship, as well as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Formula One season, the Monaco Grand Prix.
It’s easy to see how this race has become so iconic, with tight, twisting streets that become a 3.340km race track squeezed in between the Alpine foothills and the Mediterranean Sea and the port packed with impressive yachts all alive with excitement. For any company, chartering a yacht for the race is a fantastic way to host and impress your most valued clients or to thank your hard working employees, or it’s a great opportunity to spend a day with friends in one of the most exhilarating atmospheres as cars speed through the narrow streets of Monaco, and passing through the port lined with super yachts which are as close to the action as they can possibly be.
The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the few Formula One venues in the world that is both a must for avid race fans, celebrities and partygoers alike. You don’t have to be a big Formula One fan to enjoy the Monaco Grand Prix weekend! Glamorous parties, fashion shows and sponsors’ events ensure that everyone is kept entertained, but you cannot help but let yourself get caught up in the racing action once the engines start to rev and the lights go green!
The action starts as early as Thursday when the first and second practice sessions are held. Friday is a relatively quiet day used by some to recover from the night before followed by the third practice on Saturday. Following this is qualifying to determine the driver’s grid positions before the main attraction of the race on Sunday. The Grand Prix generally coincides with the Cannes Film Festival, which is also a peak time for cannes yacht charter running over the last weekend of the event, so it is often very popular with celebrities who head to the French Riviera to attend both events.
Even if you miss out on a trackside berth, a day charter along the French Riviera is also a great way to be part of the action – even at anchor outside the port you can feel part of the action thanks to the vibrant atmosphere that the race creates.
Everybody dreams of being able to charter a yacht for the Monaco Grand Prix, not only for a great view of the race but to be part of one of the greatest and most glamorous sporting events in the world.
