HSH Prince Albert was present at the start of the Palermo-Monte-Carlo regatta, now in its fourteenth year, on Tuesday, August 21. He was also made an honorary citizen of the capital of Sicily by its mayor, Leoluca Orlando.
The regatta, organised by the Circolo della Vela Sicilia, the Monaco Yacht Club and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, has attracted 55 crews this year, against 44 last year.
The route passes Sardinia and Corsica for 500 nautical miles to end on Sunday, August 26, at the Monaco Yacht Club.
The Sovereign Prince was in Palermo last October to receive an honorary diploma in marine ecology from the city’s university.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
Prince Albert has warned the National Council that its criticism of his government’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic is unnecessarily escalating the tension and uncertainty surrounding the crisis.
