Excellent news has just been announced regarding this year's Monaco Grand Prix: yacht charters with up to 12 passengers will be allowed to attend, and up to 7,500 spectators can watch the spectacles from the grandstands in Monaco. The exhilarating event is the world's most famous Formula One fixture and takes place between 20-23 May 2021 in the spectacular surrounds of the French Riviera. It is one of the biggest events in the yachting calendar, and was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic — representing the very first time it had been cancelled in more than 65 years.
The principality's government announced yesterday that up to 12 yacht charter guests per vessel (both personal and corporate) will be allowed to watch. Due to COVID-19 regulations, the usual party yachts which sell individual tickets to the race will not be allowed at the 2021 Grand Prix.
Grandstand capacity this year will be capped at 40 percent, allowing up to 7,500 ticket holders daily, except Friday. Spectator numbers will be limited to 3,000 on Friday, when the junior series track action and Formula Two race take place. The qualifiers are held on Saturday, with the main event on Sunday.
Attendance is not restricted to just locals: attendees simply need to provide proof of a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours in advance.
