Key players in Monaco’s banking sector have turned out in force for the Challenge Inter-Banques-Trophée ERI organised by the Yacht Club of Monaco under the patronage of Monaco for Finance (AMAF – Association Monégasque des Activités Financières).
For the 2019 edition, 40 employees divided into eight teams represented their respective establishments for a weekend of friendly competition on the sea.
Reserved exclusively for banks and financial institutions, the event is designed to reinforce team spirit.
Two days of racing on J/70s, made available free of charge by boat owners in the J/70 Monaco Class Association, were on the programme the weekend of 8th and 9th June.
A consistent performance by Marco Ardigo’s crew (Credit Suisse) with two 2nd places was not enough. Having won the first race and clinching a convincing 3rd in the second, the trio of Société Générale ladies succeeded in taking the title off Credit Suisse, which had won the event for the last two years.
Julius Baer completed the podium. Note that their team included two young sailors from the YCM’s Sports Section, Jeremy Moutout and Juan Casalone, who are currently working at the Swiss institution.
The government says masks must still be worn outdoors, despite a significant drop in Covid-19 circulation and a request by the National Council to relax some of the stricter measures.
Divine food and beautiful locations with amazing chefs over seven weeks is the hallmark of SBM’s latest culinary event, taking place from the end of September through to mid-January.
To kick off European Sustainable Development Week, AS Monaco is presenting its new organic vegetable garden intended to help the team boost performance.
A call for participation has been put out for those who would like to make a difference during this year’s European Waste Reduction Week under the theme ‘Circular Communities’.
