This week we head to St. Barts in the Caribbean, an island with a great passion for the sea. The yacht club of St. Barts organises events with some of the most beautiful ships in the world - we take a look.
We're in Cannes checking out the exceptional yachts of the royal regatta, and in particular the Manitou. President John F. Kennedy sailed Manitou often and was so fond of the boat that she became nicknamed the "floating White House". But first, we give you an update on the Jacques Vabre transatlantic race, where 12 vessels have already been knocked out by the harsh weather.
The Transat Jacques Vabre race is celebrating its tenth anniversary. It kicks off on October 30th and preparations are well under way. Also, we head to Saint-Tropez for the end of season regatta, with nearly 300 beautiful boats. Our guests explain why it’s a celebration of fair play.
We check out the second edition of the Clairefontaine Trophy, held in La Grande Motte - over 10,000 people turn out to watch it every year. And we discover the Monaco Classic Week, which allows participants and spectators to step back in time with hundreds of meticulously restored motorboats, sailboats and motoryachts.
