heavy rain on Wednesday morning did not dampen the spirits of the England, Scotland, Wales and Monaco rowing teams from putting their all into a 300 meter rowing race called “The Princes Cup 2017” held in the Port of Monaco.

Prince Albert II watched the races from the deck of a yacht in the port. The Nautical Society of Monaco was the host, the goal being to publicise Outward Bound Monaco and the main Outward Bound organisation which gives young people life changing experiences.

Each of the crews was composed of two rowers, a helmsman of the Monaco Sailing Company, a rower from each country (Wales, Scotland, England, Monaco) and a sponsor and a top athlete from other sports.

The Aberdovey crew made up of teenagers, was led by rugby player Dan Luger, defeated the Monaco team in the final - winning the "Prince's Cup".

Captain of the Welsh boat, the English rugby player Dan Luger was able to push his young crew, composed of members of the Outward Bound association, rowing against local rowers captained by the Australian cyclist Tiffany Cromwell.

Scotland (Loch Eil Centre) was lead by rugby player Ross Beatie and England (Ullswater Centre) by rowing champion captain Matthew Bennett.

The morning ended with an award ceremony in the Yacht Club de Monaco.
