Mirabaud has been title sponsor of the Bol d’Or for ten years. It is passionate about this major regatta in the European sailing calendar which embodies simultaneously endurance, tenacity and team spirit.
The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is the largest inland regatta in Europe. It is held annually on Lake Geneva, attracting almost 500 boats and 3,000 participants, both amateurs and seasoned sailors. Supported by the Group since 2005, the race has borne the name of Mirabaud since 2007, as it became the title sponsor following its stint as main sponsor. Mirabaud is also involved on the water, since each time the competition is held the bank enters teams comprising managers and employees – teams that have on several occasions honoured the bank by winning in their category.
Held for the first time in 1939, this regatta organised by the Geneva Nautical Association (Société Nautique de Genève, SNG) has seen several big sailing names not only take part, but also take gold. These include Loïck Peyron, Ernesto Bertarelli, Alain Gautier, Russell Coutts, Philippe Durr, Eric Tabarly, Dennis Corner, Franck Cammas, Michel Desjoyeaux, François Gabart and Sébastien Josse.
