The Crossing: Calvi-Monaco Water bike Challenge - "The Crossing: Calvi - Monaco Water bike Challenge" in aid of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation arrived on Sunday morning at 11:31 at the Monaco Yacht Club, here in the Principality.

The Serenity team led by Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene won the challenge after 22 hours and 33 minutes. The Notorious team, led by Mr. Gareth Wittstock, Secretary General of the Foundation, crossed the finishing line 14 minutes later. Riviera Radio spoke to Gareth as he arrived at the Yacht Club.
