Most people can only dream about sailing around the South of France or The French Riviera, as the rich and famous love to do. Including the magnificent beaches of Cannes and Saint-Tropez the Mediterranean coast is an idyllic location, known as (the Cote d’Azur) in French. With a population of over two million people the French Riviera is home to the most discerning of residents and visitors.
Imagine the clear turquoise blue waters, the stretches of soft, golden sands, the warm breezes against your skin as you cruise majestically around the beautiful coastline. Picture the scene, you are standing on the bow of a gorgeous, wooden sailing boat, your crisp white, linen trousers worn comfortably alongside smart blue deck shoes. Your light, cotton shirt cools against your skin and your chunky knitted Aran Sweater is tied casually around your shoulders. Aran Sweaters are a popular accessory for most of the sailing fraternity as they are so versatile and not only look incredibly smart but they keep you warm in a sea breeze or on a chilly evening.
This lifestyle includes socialising, wining and dining with the elite and famous, football stars, movie legends and millionaires. With several marinas along it’s coasts the area attracts the majority of the super yachting fraternity. With over three hundred days of glorious sunshine guaranteed every year it’s obvious why the French Riviera is such a popular destination.
