MB92 & Compositeworks to Join London to Monaco Challenge 2018

London Monaco 140

MB92 & Compositeworks, are proud to be participating in the 2018 London to Monaco cycle ride, organized by the Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE).

The ride departs from London on 19th September and finishes in Monaco on the 25th to coincide with the start of the Monaco Yacht Show, raising awareness and funding for several projects working to improve the health of the oceans. 

The event is the first opportunity for staff across the MB92 Group to come together in this way. Team Captain José- Maria Ros will be joined by Eduardo Castellanos, Jaume Passola, David Omedes and Jordi Torralba from the MB92 Barcelona facilities in Spain, and Ben Mennem and Philippe Groulx from Compositeworks La Ciotat in France. The team will aim to complete the last three legs of the trip and hopes to raise a significant amount for the cause.

As part of the international superyacht community, MB92 Group understands the potential impact on the marine environment.

Commercial Director, Henk Dreijer commented, “This is something we have been interested in being a part of for some time. The BLUE have done so well in encouraging the superyacht sector to become more involved in marine conservation and I am delighted that we are able to participate this year. I am especially pleased as this will be the first opportunity for the varying MB92 group members to collaborate outside of work and for such a good cause.” 

There will be crew events leading up to the race as well assponsorship drives to help support the riders. Collection points have also been set up in the facilities in Spain and France to help the team reach their target.
