Sun, Sea, and Shipping


The latest addition to my shipping calendar is the Monaco Shipping Event, which is a two-day golf and sailing tournament. It fits neatly between Nor-Shipping in Oslo and Marine Money Week in New York, and sounds like a fabulous shipping social event.

Here’s how I imagine the two days would be like. The sun part is the golf tournament, a couple of rounds at the Monaco Golf Club. Followed by a late night in the bars of Monaco. The next day is sea; winch monkey on some shipowner’s racing yacht at the Monaco Yacht Club. Later on is the shipping bit; listening to a few speeches after dinner and clapping the prize-giving, before the inevitable all-nighter in the Casino of Monte Carlo. Sounds like great fun.
