Not surprisingly, sea access to Port Hercules will be severely limited during the world’s number one super yacht event, the Monaco Yacht Show, which starts on Wednesday.

After 5am and before 10 am and from 8:30 am until midnight, embarkation and disembarkation will be limited to the pontoon of the Monaco Yacht Club.
Exhibitors will be able to apply for permits from Monday, September 26, until the last day of the show, Saturday, October 1, at the MYS offices on qui Antoine 1.

Monaco’s female volleyball players are in urgent need of a major sponsor, having finished in second place in the French second league at the end of last season. Only Beziers defeated the Monaco team.
However, promotion to the top league will be expensive, costing an annual €240,000 instead of the €50,000 that the club currently pays.
The team’s captain, Caroline Revel Chion, told Monaco-Matin that players have approached many potential sponsors, but so far without success. “We have all asked the companies we know," she said. The current small sponsors have organised collections to contribute towards the club’s outgoings, but it's not enough, she said.
The team has started a crowd-funding campaign to pay for travel expenses, a modest €50,000 per season.
