A sponsor committed to water sports
The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is the largest inland regatta in the world. 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.
Open to experienced or novice sailors, but also to the public, the Bol d'Or Mirabaud is also an exceptional opportunity to showcase a region, a sumptuous environment and setting, cradle of Mirabaud since 1819!
Mirabaud is not only associated with the organisation of the world's largest closed water regatta, but is an active participant since some of its employees will be engaged in the race aboard Surprise Mirabaud, with serious expectations. In 2017, the crew of Nicolas Mirabaud, Managing Partner, had won the event in the Surprise category.
Big sailing names among the winners
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.
