The project is the result of a close collaboration between the Yacht Club de Monaco, presided by HSH Prince Albert II and its General Secretary Bernard d’Alessandri, and Philippe Ghanem who is an active member of the Club. They share a common goal: to help young athletes living in Monaco reach the highest level in sport.
