Anchored at Ile St-Margeurite off Cannes as no berths were available in the Cannes marinas.
Took dinghy across and infiltrated the security at Port De La Croisette, Cannes and tied up amongst the super yachts. We walked into the restaurant at Palm Beach in our bogan sailing
attire for dinner - no problem, they did not bat an eyelid. They would have presumed we had a berth in the marina.
Met a Belgium guy there who was based in Dubai running tennis camps. Nice bloke, very familiar with Melbourne, re Aussie open. Very good food and surprisingly cheap considering the location
- no doubt subsidised by the huge fees that would be charged for the superyachts in the marina.
