BOL D'OR MIRABAUD
The 81st edition of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud was introduced this morning at the Société Nautique de Genève, which will host the event on June 14 to 16. With more than 500 boats expected to take the start, 95 are already registered as of now in anticipation of the word’s greatest fresh water regatta. This year’s emphasis will not only be the true lake festival the race is on water, but also include a dynamic program on land.
The opening ceremony will launch the festivities Friday evening, with the Léman steamer Neptune once again tied up at the honor dock. This provided a larger stage for last year’s jubilee, and will be repeated this year. Mirabaud, title partner of the event, is celebrating its bicentennial and is contributing to the activities including two live concerts aboard the Neptune, open to competitors and the public alike. Friday evening, Time Machine will liven the Société Nautique de Genève terrace with a 70s-80s sound while Saturday, Zermatt’s Wintershome will bring folk music to the scene. Beside these concerts, our partner will also provide several special gifts.
