We have called on women who are active in the Principality’s Yachting and Maritime sector, with a strong, emblematic and striking career path, as Directors, Heads of their department in the Yachting or Maritime sector or with a remarkable personality, to spread the word not only locally but also far beyond our borders about the position of these women (and of women in general in a more global sense), the possible and real successes in these specific worlds but also and above all our beautiful differences and the good collaboration that exists with the men who are very much present. These are just some of the ideas that will emerge from this unique book, based on the personal experiences of each woman.
