Re: Picture Identification Game

Sorry folks, but I’ve been away most of the day, so I am just now able to confirm Tempest’s correct and exact call.

When I checked the image in preview mode, you could make out something on the horizon, which is actually Block Island. But when I checked the reposted image from Tempest, it was too fuzzy to make out anything on the horizon.

I was concerned that the street sign would make it too easy. FWIW, the photo was taken midway between Abbotts and Fords—2 very popular shoreside eateries in Noank

Re: Picture Identification Game

That looked a lot like France, I know it isn't Antibes, as I lived there for a year, but I checke out Frejus, Cannes, Nice and Saint-Tropez but none of them fit. No courtesy flags can be seen, so perhaps my guess of mediterranean France was wrong after all. Could it be the Capitainerie at Le Havre, France?

Re: Picture Identification Game

hmmm. This one is gonna be tricky. Terrain looks pretty flat, somewhere warm ( Stone buildings, clay tile roofs), Big sailing fleet, racers. Looks like it might be a river town. Not a flag to be seen. I too thought the South of France @ 1st. Too bad I'm working tomorrow or I'd work on this puzzle. ;-)
The Black domed building with a spire could be a clue.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Not Le Havre but you are correct that it is not Mediterranean and it is in France.

Re: Picture Identification Game

I think its despicable to have a photo with sunny skies when I am wintering in London!


Je pense que ce sont Les Sables d'Olonne.


The home of Beneteau!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Picture Identification Game

Pas si despicable parceque l’image etait pris le 8 Janvier 2019.....

It is indeed Port Olona at Les Sables D’Olonne looking down from atop my mast, checking the rig before setting off across the Atlantic. It is also home to Alubat. You have the ball but bonus points for the name of the Pontoon.

PS London is indeed pretty grey. Just about to head back to Antigua after Christmas where the skies will be blue except when it is raining!

Re: Picture Identification Game

It is indeed the “Ponton Vendee Globe” - it is a bit like the parking space outside a smart hotel - you get to park your Ferrari until someone shows up with a Bugatti Veyron! In our case, we had to move when the first IMOCA 60s started to return from the Route du Rhum

Interestingly, Beneteau does not have a dock in Les Sables D’Olonne/Port Olona (but lots of Lagoon Cats being splashed and commissioned on their own dock). I think they splash their boats in St Hilaire bout 10 miles up the coast.

My turn

It should always be my turn. Except when my Ego is in check. Which is never
