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.
