Official GOST Trailer – 20th Anniversary

I’m proud having the opportunity to publish today this homage to all on- and offshore members of the Global Offshore Sailing Team (GOST). They created in the last 20 years a unique example of people’s diplomacy. Founded in 1999 by Jochen Werne and Guido Zoeller, the Global Offshore Sailing Team, acts today as an international group of dedicated sailors comprised of members from all over the world. GOST which navigates on oceans worldwide and in which many teammates have naval backgrounds, have made it a priority to keep naval traditions alive and to use expeditions as instrument for the creation of international understanding and peoples’ diplomacy.

Press Monaco Matin: Le prince Albert-Ier dans les mémoires

Monaco-Matin – 5 Jul 2019 T.P.

This Tuesday at sea, at the foot of the imposing Institute of Oceanography, Prince Albert II laid a wreath in the waters of the Great Blue. A gesture in memory of his great-great-grandfather, emeritus sailor and scientific explorer, Prince Albert I. This tribute took place on the fringes of the Navigators Heritage Challenge (1), a nearly 600-kilometre sailing course where crews are only allowed to use navigational instruments invented before the beginning of the 20th century; demonstrations between and following this solemn commemoration, the Sovereign unveiled the logo of the Prince Albert Ier Memorial Committee, launched in December 2018 to lay a calendar of events celebrating his life and work between 2019 and 2022 (2). It is intended to be sober and open to all aspects of the pioneering work of the man we liked to call “the learned Prince”. Different types of actors are mobilized to carry out projects of all kinds, aimed at diverse audiences, organized by a collective of dedicated sailors of many nationalities: Global Offshore Sailing Team. 2. 2019 is the year of the centenary of the creation of the International Commission for the Scientific Exploration of the Mediterranean Sea. 2022 is the year of the centenary of his death.
