The new Yacht Club of Monaco
Here's a look at what will be Monaco's new yacht club. Yes, the red rimmed structure in the foreground looks like a yacht, doesn't it? Indeed it has been designed to be as 'slender as the liners which used to cruise between England and America in the early 20th century.' The architect is Lord Norman Foster.
The new Yacht Club de Monaco is on the opposite side of the port to the current yacht club. Building work will be completed by the end of 2013, with a grand opening planned at the traditional summer cocktail for YCM members in 2014.
