A whole day is now dedicated to the Yacht Club de Monaco’s Environmental Symposium La Belle Classe Superyachts on the Thursday of MONACO OCEAN WEEK. This year the meeting for the 9th edition is on Thursday 28th March on the theme:

Yachting: A Laboratory for the Future / A Vehicle for Preserving the Ocean

The day will end with the first La Belle Classe Superyachts Explorer YCM Explorer Awards presented by HSH the Sovereign Prince Albert II at a private dinner for owners.

The fundamental aims of the Environmental Symposium La Belle Classe Superyachts are to: Report back/gather information on innovations and their effectiveness; Exchange/discuss ongoing developments and future trends; Raise awareness of owners & captains of the need to protect the Ocean & its biodiversity; Propose/ decide on virtuous practices inscribed in the YCM’s L’Art de Vivre la Mer; Undertake to comply with these virtuous practices to “Navigate Clean, Navigate Better”.

At every Environmental Symposium recurrent themes relating to the above actions will be discussed, focusing on innovations that are being implemented and the environmental approach relating to: New destinations; Sustainable moorings & anchorages: Respect & Preservation of Coastal Areas; Routine maintenance in harbour and at sea: Protection, Maintenance & Management of General Waste & Emissions; and New energy sources for propulsion: Sail, Electricity & Hydrogen.

Preservation of the Ocean will be at the centre of all debates: behaviour at sea and ashore; products and services for superyachts “to navigate clean”: maintenance (hull, deck, interior, engine room, pipes, etc.); protection (new generation antifouling methods); maintenance (general waste and waste water); exhaust and air conditioning gases; cold chain management; etc.

Proposals by 25 speakers will serve to enhance the Blue Charter of good environmental practices, an initiative by members of the CAPTAINS’ CLUB. This will be done in collaboration with the Sustainable Yachting Network. The goal is for this Blue Charter to be distributed and promoted at the next CAPTAINS’ FORUM, during the Monaco Yacht Show (27 September 2019).

The Yacht Club de Monaco’s 9th Environmental Symposium La Belle Classe Superyachts is organised in partnership with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Association OceanoScientific, RAMOGE and the Cluster Yachting Monaco – all interested parties of the Sustainable Yachting Network.
