French Med Cruising
You may remember me from earlier this year - the sportscruiser owners invading your forum asking for information on Cornish cruising. The information given was very helpful and four sportscruisers were towed to Mylor and launched, but recovered at Queen Annes Battery, Plymouth, three days before the scheduled end of our holiday. I'm saying nuthin, apart from does anyone have any info on launching and cruising the French Mediterranean! We need a bit of sun and a little less wind next year!!! We have all bought Rod Heikells Pilot, but can find no information on slipways where we could launch the boats ourselves, and secure storage space for 4 4x4s and trailers for two weeks.
While at Mayflower Marina (stormbound for three days.....) we saw a book about launching in France but made the mistake of walking past it. When we decided to try France for next years holiday we rang the Chandlery at Mayflower only to be told the one and only copy had been sold, they didnt know who published it and couldnt tell us where we could buy another copy.
I even plucked up courage and rang one of the marinas in Menton, only to be told I had rang the Banc de'Antibes! They were very helpful, and said that although they didnt know of any slipways they would open an account for us to start saving for our holiday!
We have already booked our ferry crossing so are all searching whichever forums we can for any information.
Hope you can help.
