FROM 11-13 JUNE 2021 Lake Geneva will come alive with hundreds of colourful and white sailing boats dotted across the waters and taking part in the world’s most important inland regatta: The Bol D’Or Mirabaud 2021.
Started in 1939, the boat race welcomes mono-hulls and multihulls each year on Lake Geneva.
More than 500 boats will take part in this 123 kilometre (66,5 nautical miles) course from Geneva to Le Bouveret and back.
WHERE TO WATCH IN PERSON
The Société Nautique de Genève is exceptionally closed to the public this year, but you can follow the race live online (info below).
You can watch the sailboats depart at 10:00 in the morning from the Vengeron beach on rive droite, or if you’re on rive gauche, along the Quai de Cologny or from Pré Byron.
To see the boats go by during the race, visit the many terraces and promenades along the racecourse from Bellevue to Montreux, via Nyon, Morges and the Lavaux. The famous rounding mark at Le Bouveret in the eastern lake can be seen from ashore. The Signal de Bougy also offers an exceptional view of the whole race.
