Good news! Cannes Yachting Festival, scheduled for 8-13 September, IS taking place. Show Manager Sylvie Ernoult says this year’s watchword is ADAPTATION. Expect 340 over motor boats and 80 sailing boats, divided between both ports in Cannes (motor boats at the Vieux Port and sailing boats in the Sailing Area at Port Canto).
Talking of sailing, across the Atlantic in the USA, Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club in Kennebunkport, Maine is partnering with iconic American footwear brand Sperry. Through October 2020 the hotel’s nautically-themed pop-up Yacht Rock Bar by Sperry includes a custom-built, yacht-inspired photo installation designed to replicate the bow of a boat. Special packages come with two pairs of Sperry summer boat shoes, right size of course.
