"I am delighted to be able to announce that Icon Connect are continuing our support for Blue Marine Foundation in 2017.  The importance of this initiative is unmeasurable as our dependence on the wellbeing of the sea to sustain life is critical. Any difference we can make, no matter how small, to ensure we promote the Blue Marine Foundation cause, will help sustain both our and our children’s futures and this wonderful industry within in which we are lucky enough to work."

We are delighted to have the support of Monaco based PR guru Natalia Langsdale at Bright Creativity in helping promote London to Monaco 2017 in Monaco and France.

Having loved taking part in the last day of London to Monaco 2016, Natalia was keen to jump on board again using her expertise to help promote the event this year amongst her network. She is also getting back in the saddle and already signed up to the last day! Kudos!

Natalia said: 

"Supporting Blue Marine Foundation is not only an honour for Bright Creativity but first and foremost a natural gesture of selflessness. Considering the importance of our oceans in our everyday lives and how we need to be conscientious about our future and that of our children’s, by pushing our limits and giving our all, the London-Monaco riders along with their sponsors, are together on the right track to help make a small but impactful difference.

Cycling the London-Monaco ride, actively promoting and finding the right sponsors and partners for the cause, is my drop in the ocean of helping push the significance of the Blue Marine Foundation’s cause out to a larger audience be it in yachting, to press, keen riders, celebrity ambassadors as well as fellow Young Professional in Yachting members."

Thrilled to announce Gym Marine's support of London to Monaco 2017. Gym Marine will be helping all our 2017 riders sooth those aches and pains by providing slick yoga mats and rollers for the evening stretching sessions throughout the ride!

Edward Thomas, Founder of Gym Marine said:

"We’re thrilled to be supporting such a great initiative! The London 2 Monaco bike ride is a fantastic example of what the yachting industry can really achieve when it gets behind a cause as close to its heart as the Blue Marine Foundation. Of course, this one is extra relevant to us as it's a chance to make a difference through physical exercise! We hope that we can help soothe some aches and pains along the route with our donation, and that all of the riders have an amazing ride!!"
