125th Anniversary of the Société Nautique de Monaco Celebrated on Postage Stamp


First Day of Issue: January 16, 2013 - Monaco

Monaco will issue a new postage stamp celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Société Nautique de Monaco.

In 1888, twelve Monegasques got together to create a sports club called Société des Régates; it organised sailing and rowing regattas.

In 1953, the Yacht Club de Monaco was founded and took over the sailing activities, while the Société des Régates changed its name to Société Nautique de Monaco and continued with the rowing.
