During this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, an exclusive cocktail reception was hosted for members of the BOAT International Captains’ Club. Held on shore for the first time at Monte Carlo’s Crazy Pizza, the event was supported by the Captains’ Club annual partner Starboard Card and event partners Pendennis and DNV.

This year’s venue was still a stone’s throw from the action, located in Port Hercule in the prestigious district of Monte Carlo. Event partner and risk management experts DNV supplied chic branded backpacks for members of the Captains’ Club and their guests.

Catered by Crazy Pizza, the food provided was buffet-style with a variety of pizzas alongside trays of San Daniele ham, focaccia, fried squid, zucchini and arancini. A selection of soft drinks and beers accompanied bottles of Côtes de Provence, Vallombrosa Cuvée Prunelle Rosé and Villa Minelli Pinot Grigio delle Venezie.
