On the Road Again
9 septembre 2013
Watch this Space!
The annual pilgrimage south to the Côte d’Azur is about to start. This year is a Monaco Classic Week year, so that is our first mission; the first race is on Thursday.
Next week Rolex are sponsoring a series of challenges between various metre class yachts in Portofino, Italy, we are going to be there.
Then, of course, there is the magnificent Bay of Cannes and the Régates Royales. This year, unfortunately (fortunately in certain ways), I will only be able to cover the first couple of days’ racing as I am photographing the stopover of the Mediterranean Tall Ships’ Race in Toulon for the organisation. This will also mean that I won’t arrive in Saint Tropez at the start of the wonderful Voiles de Saint Tropez, but will be present as soon as my commitments at Toulon are fulfilled.
We shall try and post images regularly from all these events, both on the blog: https://nigelpert.wordpress.com and on my facebook page. Should you have a use for any images, in whatever form, don’t hesitate to contact me.
As we drive back north after this month with the classic fleet and the tall ships we will swing by Rochefort on the west coast of France to admire the now fully rigged Hermione and see how the fitting out is progressing.
