The Bol d'Or Mirabaud is the world's largest inland lake regatta. Started in 1939, it welcomes monohulls and multihulls each year on Lake Geneva, starting in Geneva, Switzerland. More than 500 boats encounter each other on this 123 kilometre (66.5 nautical miles) course from Geneva to Le Bouveret and back.
Two starting lines are in place, one for monohulls, between Genève-Plage and La Perle du Lac, and the other, for multihulls (with the TF35), off the Tour Carrée.
A true lake festival, the Bol d'Or Mirabaud is one of the major events on Lake Geneva each year. Thousands of spectators attended the start of the race, the cannon being fired at 10 am.
