The Crossing : Calvi - Monaco Water Bike Challenge

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is pleased to announce the start of the "The Crossing: Calvi - Monaco Water Bike Challenge" race which took place today, Saturday 12  September 2020 from the Quai d’Honneur of the port of Calvi.

Two teams, "Team Serenity" led by H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco and "Team Notorious" led by Mr. Gareth Wittstock, General Secretary of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, face the challenge at sea to reach Monaco from Calvi in a minimum time by water bike, with the aim of raising awareness of the various programmes led by the Foundation.

To ensure the smooth running of this challenge, the members of both teams will take turns at more or less regular intervals throughout the race, determining their own relay strategies.
The Serenity team features  H.S.H. Princess Charlene, David Tanner, Mathew Bennett and Brandon Green.
The Notorious team features Gareth Wittstock, Jérôme Fernandez, Kevin Crovetto and Guido Belinskis replacing Conor McGregor.

The expected finish of this 180 km challenge will take place Sunday 13th, in the early afternoon at the Yacht Club de Monaco.
