hello from cannes cote d'azur, standfast 27

i just bought a stanfast 27, 1977;
very rare here in the med, i am renovating completly the hull, epoxy etc..., today is raining so i look on the internet to find some sistership of my "Behappy". i would like to have contact with other people who have the same model boat. the last owner never really used it for sailing just staying during 20 years in " rade de Villefranche" and 'behappy" needs a good refit .
i am living my boat in Cannes yach club

Yes, French and Americans have something in common: For both it is very difficult to speak another language

Soyez le bienvenu!

Re: hello from cannes cote d'azur, standfast 27

Bonjour Danny, I used to work up on Sophia Antipolis and live in Valbonne, so going to Antibes or Cannes was about the same distance (I had a motorcycle, so could dodge through traffic).

From the prices that I saw, the 5-year dock place rental costs more than most boats that would fit into the slip, is that still true?

Villefranche is wonderful! Loved the whole Côte d'Azur!

I went to the University of Nice for the summer of 1987. I love the region, it is beautiful. I think the boats are just plain rare. And if you want to see difficult you should see my French, even though I got a certificate of completion!

Re: hello from cannes cote d'azur, standfast 27

yes the price for a berth for boat is expersive , but sometime you can have a mooring on iles de Lerins, , that the life even on the sea. ! , ...but for me my little boat is most important than cars or other everything, so i need it , even if it is very expensive.
