Richard Mille New Partner : Pierre Casiraghi

Pierre Casiraghi to sail under the Richard Mille banner.

At just barely thirty years old, the passion of this entrepreneur and son of the Princess Caroline de Monaco is sailing. The brand’s first ever navigator partner, the young royal brings together his two identities in sponsoring ‘Sail for a Cause’.

This passionate affair with the sea is by no means a matter of chance. For Pierre Casiraghi, sailing is second nature: but it all came into focus for Pierre in 2010 thanks to the experience he gained aboard Tuiga, the flagship of Monaco’s Yacht Club, an institution of which he is today vice-president.

An excellent coxswain, he has sailed on legendary boat models—VOR70, MOD70, IMOCA, GC32, TP 52, Esimit...—and won many high-profile regattas and prizes, such as the Palermo-Monte Carlo (twice in the TP 52 class), the Giraglia Rolex Cup aboard Esimit Europa II, the Cape to Rio Yacht Race (a record that still stands), the Fastnet Race (3rd in doubles category) and the Middle Sea Race (line honours). 

In 2016, Pierre put together his own sailing team and acquired a new-generation catamaran to compete in the GC32 category. Christened Malizia (the Cunning), in a charming reference to the Grimaldi family history, the boat represented an outrageous wager: ‘My teammate Boris Herrmann and I wanted to start out straight away with a major challenge although neither of us had any experience with this type of boat’ says Pierre Casiraghi. ‘We fixed on the idea of buying one of the new ‘flying’ catamarans. It was a seriously risky wager.’ The results, however, speak for themselves as they successfully won several legs.

Pierre’s arrival within the Richard Mille family provides an exceptional opportunity to test the RM 60-01 Regatta and ensure its perfect adaptation to the nautical world, a severely hostile environment due to the corrosive properties of seawater.
