On September 26, the second edition of the Monaco Yacht Summit will examine issues of first-time charterer or purchase of luxury yachts. The pre-Monaco Yacht Show event is exclusively designed to equip new potential superyacht charterers and buyers – or their reps – with information about the decision-making process before attending the four days of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS), which takes place from September 27-30. For Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of the Monaco Yacht Show and on the initiative of the Monaco Yacht Summit, this new rendezvous on the eve of the Show aims at offering the ad hoc platform to deliver the superyacht industry intelligence for prospectives. “The Monaco Yacht Show is the world’s leading superyacht market for yacht owners and the new clientele. With the rising generation of younger UHNWI that can afford a luxury vessel but don’t know much about yachting, we believe this is the responsibility of the MYS to give them the opportunity to better understand the industry,” Ms Tallarida told Monaco Life. She added, “In an intimate and focused format, the Monaco Yacht Summit will be held in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone can ask difficult questions they might feel embarrassed to ask as they are new to this world, which has become ever more regulated, with changing laws and hoops to jump through.” Eleven selected experts will share their personal experience and unbiased insights during five table talks on the subjects of Charter (Freddy Desplanques, Sophia Tutino), Purchase (Ken Judge, Robb Maass, Anouch Sedef), Crew (Charles Dugas-Standish, John Cook), Design (Stefano Pastrovich, Laura Pomponi) and Management (Xavier Lamadrid, Jonathan Watson). Ken Judge has been living in Monaco for the last 25 years. At Tuesday’s Summit, he will be addressing the purchase and chartering of superyachts and, as both a lawyer with a background in superyacht construction projects and a consumer, he has a lot of perspective on the good, bad and ugly of buying, selling and chartering superyachts. “Monaco has probably the highest concentration of superyacht owners,” Mr Judge, who has raced all his life, from dinghies and all sizes up to the America's Cup, said, “and it’s a natural destination for owners and charterers to check out what boats are available and the latest trends in both, as well as to be updated at the developments in taxation and crewing of boats.” Mr Judge referred to the 2016 Monaco Yacht Summit as “a revelation”. “The attendees were very engaged and eager to explore a range of topics and as the format was pretty relaxed and the speakers are readily accessible, the topics were explored in depth. The feedback has been very generous and it seems everyone thought they had a great time.” Xavier Lamadrid, who will discuss the complex regulatory and tax environment during the Management workshop, said he has experienced first hand the period and waste of resources that a poorly managed yacht can cause on a Family Office and the Principal. The Monaco resident said, “The Summit is special as it brings some of the best experts to give real unbiased information to real prospective to first-time yacht buyers and renters, this makes it unique. There are still a lot of cowboys out there when big commissions are at stake.” Yacht owner and ex-GB Team Sailor Tom Montgomery first became involved in the Monaco Yacht Summit through an introduction from Yacht Investor Magazine. “I will be there to introduce a number of my friends and clients who are in the early stages of looking to buy their first superyacht, and in some cases this is their first Monaco Yacht Show, and certainly their first time at the Summit,” Mr Montgomery explained. “The Summit for me is a superb event to introduce new potential owners, many from the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge – the World’s oldest Yacht Club, which is a reciprocal club with the Yacht Club de Monaco – who need guidance in the yacht market and the Monaco Yacht Show.” The Monaco Yacht Summit is a free event, although participation is upon approval. Anyone looking to appoint a personal assistant or family office representative to attend on their behalf should register for information at mys-prive.com.

Monaco resident Mika Häkkinen, the former Formula One World Champion, is to cycle 322 kilometres from Tuscany to Monaco to raise funds for Caudwell Children, the UK charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families. Häkkinen, 48, nicknamed “The Flying Finn” for his speed around the track, has agreed to participate in the Tuscany to Monaco Cycle Challenge after meeting John Caudwell, the entrepreneur, philanthropist and Founder of Caudwell Children. “I’ve been privileged to meet and get to know John,” explained Häkkinen, “His vision and passion for the charity has truly inspired me, and I felt compelled to get involved.” When he learned that Modesta Vzesniauskaite, the former Lithuanian Olympic cyclist, had organised the three-day Cycle Challenge, which starts September 22, to raise funds for the charity he jumped at the chance of registering for the event. “I’ve been cycling since I was a young boy,” said Häkkinen, the 1998 and 1999 World Champion. “If I remember correctly my first bike was a Tunturi bike, a Finnish brand. It had no shifts and only had pedal breaks. I was so proud.” Häkkinen has a number of bikes to choose from but he’s hoping his Giant will get him over the line in Monaco, despite his longest ride to date being an 140 km cycle from St Tropez to the Principality. As he explained: “I’ve done this ride a few times now for Her Highness Princess Charlene, and it’s a beautiful ride, as I’m sure the Tuscany to Monaco ride will be. Häkkinen, says that cycling is not only a great outdoor exercise but is also a great way to socialise. “I like to ride with friends and it gives me a great chance to chat and catch up. “It’s only since I finished my career that I’ve really started to appreciate the social aspect of it.” Money raised by Häkkinen, and a team of fellow cyclist, will allow Caudwell Children to continue providing hospital and in-home family support, mobility and sensory equipment, and access to specialist sports equipment. Funds will also assist fully supported family holidays for children with life-threatening conditions and activity days and life-changing therapies and treatments. Although he’s not cycling as much as he would like, Häkkinen says the challenge will be part of his fitness regime. “The Tuscany to Monaco ride will push me to get on my bike and practice a bit more. But for me it goes way beyond fitness, it includes other things like sleep and nutrition as well.” Day one of the event, on Friday, September 22, will see cyclists riding over 117 km through the beautiful rolling Tuscan countryside from San Gimignano to Forte dei Marmi. On the second day, participants will be in the saddle for 137 km miles as they are pushed to their limits on the undulating roads to the lovely town of Rapallo. On their final day of their challenge, on Sunday, September 24, the cyclists will encounter some strong coastal winds as they head towards the finish line in Monaco. “I’m very proud to support Caudwell Children, it’s a great charity, and I can’t wait to get started on this extremely worthwhile challenge.” Donations can be made through Mika Häkkinen's Just Giving Page or join Mika Häkkinen, fellow riders and guests at their celebration Ocean Gala Dinner (tickets from €500) on September 24 at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel.

On Wednesday, Charlotte Casiraghi made her usual appearance front row at the Gucci Spring/Summer 2018 show in Milan. A former model in four separate campaigns for their Forever Now series and the face of Gucci Cosmetics’ first ever collection, Charlotte is often spotted wearing the Italian brand’s designs at events including Monaco National Day and the annual Met Gala. Her loyalty to the brand has stood the test of time and a change of creative direction. Opting for natural makeup, the 31-year-old mother of one kept it simple in a black T-shirt and a leather flower print skirt with rhinestones from the Gucci Spring/Summer 2017 collection and pink pumps. Charlotte's history with Gucci extends far beyond the glamour of runway shows and red carpets. In May 2010, Gucci sponsored her when she debuted as a promising rider for the Global Champions Tour that started in Valencia, Spain, through Europe and finished in Rio de Janeiro, wearing an exclusive equestrian wardrobe, designed entirely for her by then Gucci creative director Frida Giannini. In 2014 she competed in the Gucci Paris Masters. Instagram sensation and style blogger Louis Pisano writes SuperficialLivingDiary.com. Article first published September 21, 2017.

Since its inception in 2006, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has clearly positioned the global ocean among its top priorities. The Foundation’s activities include efforts to better understand the environmental dangers to which our ocean is exposed, fight against plastic pollution, strengthen and develop marine protected areas, conserve endangered species, and promote innovative solutions for a sustainable ocean.
