With this prize, first awarded in 1992, the Monaco Yacht Club recognises the endeavours of leading figures in the maritime world, be it for competition, the environment, science, safeguarding maritime heritage or nautical industry.

In a year that has seen numerous offshore events, the 2017 “Personnalité de la Mer” prize will be awarded to a sailor recently distinguished in this discipline. The Monaco Yacht Club will present the trophy to the winner at the La Belle Classe party on Friday, September 15, held during Monaco Classic Week.

The trophy will be presented by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Jury President for Monaco Classic Week 2017, who was the first man to sail solo non-stop round the world, and the second person to win the Jules Verne Trophy.

Interested parties have until July 1, 2017, to vote for one of three nominees, with the possibility of putting forward a fourth personality. Previous winners have included Sir Robin Knox Johnstone (2013), Mike Horn (2009), Carlo Riva (2005), and King Juan Carlos de Borbon (1997).
