BECOME A NEW MEMBER OF THE YACHT CLUB
Any individual wishing to become a member of the Yacht Club de Monaco needs to be introduced by two “sponsors”, a proposer and a seconder, who must be both society members of the YCM. All members for more than a year, with exception of board members, are authorised to propose a new applicant to the admissions’ committee.
“One Spirit, one Team, one Club”
Day wear (before 8.00pm)
Navy blue or single-breasted jacket. The top breast pocket should bear the Club coat of arms.
A few customs when wearing a blazer:
– No pocket handkerchief shall be worn above the top breast-pocket bearing the Club coat of arms.
– Buttons shall be black or navy blue, preferably bearing the insignia of the Club.

The candidate needs to fill in an admission form, which is then signed by the applicant and the two sponsors, and must accompanied by a letter of introduction from the proposer.
This letter of introduction will explain the applicant’s motives for joining the Club. Twice a year, H.S.H. Prince Albert II, President of the Yacht Club de Monaco, convenes a meeting for the admissions’ committee to examine the applications.
New members are officially welcomed at a cocktail party to which all existing members of the Yacht Club de Monaco are invited, after which it is customary for the new entrant to celebrate his or her membership at a dinner in the Club restaurant.
The sponsor’s role when introducing a new member is key. It is their responsibility to help newcomers to integrate into the life of the Yacht Club, not only to accompany and introduce them to other members, but also to involve them in events organised by the Club, be they social or sporting activities.
The sponsor should also be committed to ensuring that the person they propose is encouraged to adopt the philosophy and values of the YCM, by actively participating in the life of the Club in order to keep raising the standards at the YCM even higher.

Monte Carlo Country Club
On April 2nd 1893, the "Lawn Tennis de Monte-Carlo", built on the cellars of the famous "Hôtel de Paris" and first Tennis Club of Monaco, was inaugurated.
12 years later, in 1905, the SBM decided to vote its relocation in the Condamine to allow the Hotel de Paris to build an extension. There, the Club benefited from one additionnal court, an archery range and a croquet lawn.
Because of the Town's development, the Club had to move again, this time 3 courts were built on a garage roof, with some stands, a Club-House and a practice wall. The new Club was inaugurated on January 28th 1921 as the "Festa Country Club"
In 1925, Suzanne Lenglen, who had not been present at the Monte-Carlo tournament for a few years, came back to compete again and George Pierce Butler, a rich American benefactor and tennis enthusiast, who was in admiration of the leading world player, felt the Club was unworthy of her talent. Thus, the day after the 1925 tournament, George Butler undertook to persuade the sports authorities and the SBM, to create a more prestigious club.
The Monte-Carlo Country Club posseses exceptional grounds.
The 21 clay courts, of which 2 are covered, 13 with lighting, including 2 hard courts, all playable throughout the year, are attractively set on terraces facing the sea.
Prior reservation of the courts, either on-site or by phone, is not authorised. The courts are assigned on a first come, first serve basis.
At peak hours, the maximum time allowed is one hour for singles and 1 1/2 hours for doubles.

The Automobile Club de Monaco is a motoring club based in Monaco. The club serves as the governing body for motorsport within Monaco, and organises the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix and Monte Carlo Rally. It is a member of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, representing Monaco as a mobility and sporting club.
Founded in 1890 as an association of cyclists, the Sport Vélocipédique Monégasque, the club began to incorporate motorists in 1907 and was renamed the Sport Vélocipédique et Automobile Monégasque. Alexandre Noghès, the SVAM's president, started planning the principality's first international motorsport event, the Monte Carlo Rally, at the behest of Albert I, Prince of Monaco. The rally would start at points across Europe, and converge on Monaco to finish. The club ceased to organise cycling events following the First World War and was renamed the Automobile Club de Monaco in 1925.
The ACM applied to the AIACR (the forerunner to the FIA) to be upgraded from a regional French club to a full national member, but had their application refused because no motorsport event was held entirely within Monaco's borders.Antony Noghès, the son of the club's President, organised the inaugural Monaco Grand Prix in 1929 on a circuit around the streets of Monaco, and the ACM was promptly admitted to the AIACR. The Monaco Grand Prix was part of the European Championship in the 1930s, and was included in the inaugural Formula One World Championship in 1950. The Grand Prix has been held continuously since 1955, and despite minor modifications over the years, it is still largely run over the same circuit as the inaugural race in 1929.
The ACM also organises the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco, a series of races for historic Grand Prix cars held over the Circuit de Monaco, and the Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique classic rally. Other motorsport events held by the club include the Monaco ePrix and the Junior Monaco Kart Cup.
