Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters - Rafael Nadal on Board the Tuiga

15.04.2014  Sport

In connection with the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, held from 12 to 20 April 2014, world No. 1 Rafael Nadal, eight-time winner of the Monegasque tournament, was invited to sail on board the Tuiga, a gaff-rigged cutter dating from 1909



Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who is passionate about yachting, had the honour of taking the helm of the Tuiga, the Yacht Club of Monaco's gaff-rigged cutter.

"I had a wonderful afternoon.  It was a unique experience.  I come from an island, so anything to do with the sea or sailing has a special meaning for me.  I enjoyed this outing very much and I would like to thank the crew of the Tuiga, who were very nice.  And the way they all work together to sail the boat is amazing.  Everyone works for one goal.  It's very special," said the prodigy from Manacor.  

On Monday, he also had an opportunity to visit the YCM's new building, which is due to be inaugurated on 20 June 2014.
