Cruising to Cannes...


I have the good fortune of having film in this year's Cannes Film Festival and am thinking about chartering a sailboat for my stay there. Wondering if anyone has experience with the area and can recommend anchorages and/or marinas.
I imagine every Ellison and Mark Allen "Super Yacht" will be there so my small sailboat entry plan may not be the best. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Nice is nice

WHile I cannot speak for the particular time of year (festival in town), I spent about 3 months in the area a few years back and found that the sailing was akin to the carribbean .... but the water not quite as clear. Alot of folks were sailing to Cannes from Nice. Nice has one of the most amazing little harbours on the planet. Whatever you get up to....check that place out.

We saw yachts there that I would swear, when no ones looking, those things could fly off into space. Amazing.

Make sure you take lots of pics to post.
