Albert and Andrew Present For First Prince’s Cup in Port Hercule
As patrons, Prince Albert II of Monaco and the Duke of York were present for the first Prince’s Cup on Wednesday at Port Hercule. The Cup, a rowing competition, is held to benefit the Monaco branch of Outward Bound, an international non-profit organisation dedicated to “offering challenging activity courses in natural outdoor locations, which encourage personal development and growth”.
The two Princes attended the launch and then watched the rowing races, before presenting trophies at the day’s conclusion. Four teams competed in the event, headed by a sporting celebrity (British rugby players Daniel Darko Luger and Ross Beattie, Australian cyclist Tiffany Cromwell, and British rower Mathew Bennett). They were joined in the row boats by members of the Société Nautique de Monaco and Monegasques students who have participated in Outward Bound Monaco courses.
The Prince’s Cup will be held regularly in the coming years in both Monaco and the United Kingdom.British Royals, Monaco Royals
