Bol d'Or Mirabaud 2023: registration is open
The starting gun of the world's most important inland regatta will be fired on June 10 offshore from the Société Nautique de Genève. For its 84th edition, the Bol d'Or Mirabaud will once again bring together sailing and regatta enthusiasts from Lake Geneva, as well as numerous foreign competitors and the international sailing elite led by the TF35 hydrofoil catamaran fleet and the Alinghi Red Bull Racing team.
This new edition of the BOM also brings new partnerships. The Tudor watch company joins the event as official regatta timekeeper. "The Bol d'Or Mirabeau is a monument to Swiss yachting and shares its place of origin, Geneva, with TUDOR, where the brand was founded in 1926," said the brand spokesperson. "TUDOR is proud to make a long-term commitment to the Bol d'Or Mirabeau, a partnership that is an extension of its partnership with Alinghi Red Bull Racing, the Swiss challenger for the 37th America's Cup to be held in Barcelona in 2024."
The Chevalley Group, agent for the Mercedes-Benz brand, becomes the official supplier of the event. "The Chevalley Group is proud to continue its support of sailing by becoming the automotive partner of the BOM with Mercedes-Benz," said Olivier Evain, Marketing Director. "Carbon neutrality and soft mobility via the completely electric Mercedes-EQ range will be in the spotlight, in line with the event's values."
The 84th edition of the Bol d'Or Mirabaud will officially begin on Friday, June 9 at 6pm with the traditional opening ceremony, followed by a live concert on the Neptune. As every year, the start of the regatta will be at 10am on Saturday morning offshore from the Société Nautique de Genève and will be followed live on the BOM website.
On land, the festivities will start at noon in the official BOM village, with entertainment and dining options. The race village, open to the public, will benefit from the lessons learned last year and is expected to be even more convivial. In the evening, a live concert is planned on the Neptune, followed by DJ entertainment.
