What is the Monaco Classic Week?

The Monaco Classic Week is an annual event in the waters off the coast of Monaco, organized by the Yacht Club de Monaco. It is a celebration of the beauty and elegance of sailing, and it is a true showcase of the timeless appeal of these classic and vintage vessels. It's a must-attend event for sailing enthusiasts and boat lovers from around the world.


The event features a wide variety of classic and vintage sailing boats, including sailboats and motorboats, and it includes both competitive racing and non-competitive cruising. The boats that participate in the Monaco Classic Week are typically wooden yachts that have been restored to their original condition and range from pre-1976 to pre-1950, providing an opportunity to see the evolution of boat design over time.


In addition to the sailing events, the Monaco Classic Week also includes a variety of social activities, such as shows, concerts, parties, and exhibitions. The event also features a Concours d'Elégance, where the boats are judged on their aesthetic appeal, as well as their sailing performance, making it a true celebration of the craftsmanship and beauty of these vessels.

classic sailing yacht


In 1926, William Fife III launched the 24.7m cutter Hallowe’en. According to William Fife III, designer of a number of classic yachts still racing today, “Hallowe’en is the perfect gentleman’s yacht. She is a jewel”.
When gaff-rigged racers dominated various regattas, he chose to rig the yacht as a low-aspect Bermudan cutter. Her mast and boom heights continued to change over the years, and eventually, she was transformed into a yawl.


Under new owner Alfred Larsen, a Norwegian industrialist, she returned to the Atlantic after racing in the Mediterranean for several years. The yacht became the official yacht of the Royal Norwegian Racing Club and was helmed by Prince Olaf numerous times. Following her transatlantic journey in 1938, she vanished from radar screens. She was further renamed Cotton Blosson IV by Walter Wheeler and continued her history of ocean racing before eventually being donated to the Classic Boat Museum in New Port, Rhode Island, for a much-needed refit.As a result of funds drying up in New Port, Hallowe’en was in need of a new owner and returned to the Mediterranean when Elizabeth Meyer (owner of J-Class Endeavour) assisted in finding a buyer.


From 1988 to 1991, Hallowe’en was carefully restored to her original lines at the Classic Boat Works in Newport, Rhode Island. All sawn English Oak frames were carefully repaired or replaced, and the planking was secured with bronze fasteners from the museum. Having undergone some major changes in France in 1994, she underwent another transformation in 1998, perhaps looking better now than ever. After several refits (and owners), she is now available for charter in the Mediterranean, where she races competitively in the classic regatta circuit spanning France, Corsica, Spain, and Italy. The latest refit was performed in 2009 by Fairlie Restorations on the Hamble river, UK.

Classic Charme

Hallowe’en is undoubtedly one of the most stunning yachts on the regatta scene. This fast and excellent Fife-built cruiser/racer is highly recommended for charter by anyone seeking a vintage wooden sailing yacht of the highest quality. In addition to being one of the most beautiful Fifes ever built, she is able to make fast passages across the oceans and still wins classic regattas. With her original mahogany interior, Hallowe’en is one of the finest vintage racing yachts in the Mediterranean.
