Antibes Yacht Show

The Antibes Yacht Show, starting April 18th,  is the only brokerage and charter show, held at the beginning of the season, in the Mediterranean open to the public.

In 2012, the show welcomed 13,380 visitors from all around the world, with the top 10 nationalities being France, United Kingdom, Italy, U.S.A, Monaco, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Belgium.

Antibes, about 20 minutes outside of Nice, is the biggest pleasure marina in Europe. I spent a “duvet day” strolling through this charming town last summer and frequently stroll along its sandy beaches.  Of course, I have also attended the annual yacht show – enjoying people & boat watching and seeing how the other half live!

BON VENT!

  1. I’m all alone en route to Amsterdam, with no one to enlighten me. What in the world is a “duvet day”??

  2. I had no idea either when it was mentioned to me, so click on the link in the post to find out 🙂 Happy travels!
