Hublot To Set Sail On Lake Geneva This Weekend

Hublot will take to Lake Geneva on Saturday morning as part of the  84th edition of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud (BOM) regatta. 

The watch house is part of two teams this year, and will be onboard the Solano, with accomplished sportsman and brand ambassador Alan Roura, as well as onboard with the all-female Sailing Squad boat, taking part in the competition. 

Both teams will seek to set an impressive time in the race. The all female crew changes every year, and is made up of some of the most promising young sailors in the world, who are coached by elite sailor and double Olympic gold medallist Shirley Robertson. 

The three sailors selected this year include Anjavon Allmen, 20 (Switzerland), Silvia Mas, 26, (Spain) and Eilidh McIntyre, 29 (UK).

Meanwhile, Roura is particularly familiar with the lake, having raced there in 2021 and 2017, as well as having many fond memories boating on Lake Geneva as a child. He also recorded his first victory aboard Mirabaud 1 with Cyrus Golchan on the lake in 2013.
