What is a Quayside Event?
During a Quayside Event, the yacht is docked in the harbor, like a hotel on the water. It can be entered and left at any time. The crew makes sure that only people with permission board the ship.
It’s no coincidence that the most well-known locations on the French Riviera draw events, congresses, and gatherings of all types. Cultural and sporting events have become synonymous with places like Cannes and Monaco.
When you schedule your VIP event around internationally notable events, your guests feel exclusive and part of the action. It also provides a rare opportunity to improve your press relations and have your event covered by the media.
Here’s an overview of the world’s most famous events.

The next Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix will be held in Monte Carlo from 25. – 28. May 2023.
Monaco Historic Grand Prix
The inaugural Monaco Grand Prix was in 1929, while the first race on the official Formula 1 calendar wasn’t until 1950. Since 2000, there has also been a Historic Grand Prix in Monaco, which takes place every even-numbered year two weeks before the main event.
There were seven categories of race cars in 2018, ranging from pre-war Grand Prix cars to Formula 1 vehicles from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, as well as a few early F2 vehicles and sports cars. And yes, all of these vehicles are originals – replicas are strictly prohibited, in case you were wondering.
And don’t assume they’re just driving around like they’re on tour. These are genuine racing drivers, and once they’re in the driver’s seat, ego and competitiveness take over, and they really go for it, appearing unafraid of making a dent in these magnificent vehicles.
The next Monaco Historic Grand Prix will be held in Monte Carlo from 8. – 10. May 2023.
Things are a bit quieter at an Elektro GP. But if you think that’s boring, then far from it. Instead, tactics are called for here. In 2015, the first electric Grand Prix – the “Monaco E-Prix” – took place two weeks before the main F1 event and runs every two years.
The difference between Formula E and Formula 1 begins with the fact that Formula E races take place on public roads rather than specially designed racing tracks. It continues with the fact that every race car is constructed using the same chassis.
However, there are some further distinctions between Formula 1 and Formula E:
Although the race cars’ maximum power is 200 kW, there are two ways to increase power past the limit temporarily: Fan Boost and Attack Mode.
Fans can vote for their preferred driver from a few days prior to the race to 15 minutes after it begins. They can do this through the Formula E app, the official Fan Boost website, or Twitter. The Fan Boost is a one-time power boost of 25 kW for five seconds that can be engaged by pressing a button in the app. This makes viewers more actively involved in the action and gives them the ability to control what happens.
On the other side, every driver can activate Attack Mode, widely known among fans as “Mario Kart Mode.” The driver only needs to pass over specific portions of the circuit in order to trigger the additional 25 kW. The regions are frequently at an uneasy spot on the track, which causes the driver to lose time as a result. However, when used well, it rapidly makes up for this disadvantage.
Both Fan Boost and Attack Mode are incredibly exciting because they may completely change the course of a race in a matter of seconds. The vehicles themselves don’t matter much in the E-Prix, as nearly all drivers use the same race car model. Therefore, success or failure can be determined by Fan Boost and Attack Mode, particularly when both are combined.
The next Monaco E-Prix will be held in Monte Carlo in spring 2023.
Cannes Film Festival: Where the Rich and the Famous meet
Discover the biggest film festival in the world and one of the most sought-after yacht charter destinations to draw attention to your Quayside Event.
