Last year at this time I posted a link to some photos of a journey I took with an
old boat society in the south of France.
This year, that group and a number of others from both France and Italy got together
for "Voiles Latines á Saint Tropez" in a quest for the Trophée Gras Savoye, part of the Latina Cup.
It was a wonderful weekend, just being in St. Tropez for the weekend can be nice, but add old wooden boats and a sailboat race and it was even better.
Attached is a link to a number of photos, the first half being some details of the boats, and the second half
being on the water taken during 2 days of racing.
The contrast of the old boats and the new mega-yachts in the same harbor was interesting also.
Another interesting note - I have had an old postcard from the turn of the century of St. Tropez on my desk for a while - it just happens to be taken from the same spot where we had our boat(Petit Josette) tied up. Next to us was a boat called "Elisa"..... Kinda cool.
To see the images, go here.
For last years images of the party in Le Grau du Roi,
go to the old site.
There are lots of photos, so grab a cup of coffee.
