YCM PERSONNALITÉ DE LA MER 2017
With this distinction, first awarded in 1992, the Yacht Club de Monaco publicly recognises the endeavours of leading figures in the maritime world, be it for competition, the environment, science, safeguarding maritime heritage or the nautical industry.
In a year that has seen numerous offshore events, the 2017 Personnalité de la Mer prize will be awarded to a sailor who has recently distinguished themselves in this discipline. The Yacht Club de Monaco will present the trophy to the winner at the La Belle Classe party on Friday 15th September, held during Monaco Classic Week.
You have until 1st July 2017 to vote for one of three nominees by clicking here. You may also put forward a fourth personality of your choice should you wish.
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.
