French Riviera

The French Mediterranean is a privileged region. The sweetness of the climate, the beauty of the landscape, the variety of the stops, are associated with perfect sailing conditions.

The wind is barely very strong during the season, the sea is generally quiet, the tides and currents are mostly negligible, the shores and practically with no danger, the shelters are numerous, and the visibility is exceptional. Our base in Bormes is located at the center of the most beautiful cruising destinations.

If you have only one week, discover the Côte Varoise and the Iles d'Or. Less than 15 miles away, the islands of Le Levant, Port Cros and Porquerolles offer their charm, along with the moorings of Cabasson and Léoube under the lee of Cap Bénat, and the bay of Cavalaire and Cap Lardier. In a reach of 30 miles, St-Tropez, St-Raphaël and Agay await for you. Cannes and the Iles de Lérins are only 10 miles further east. In the west, Cassis and the Calanques of Port-Miou, Morgiou, and Sormiou are less than 50 miles away.

If you have two weeks or more, set sail to Corsica, Sardegna or the Balearic islands. From Bormes the closest Corsican harbour is Calvi (110 miles). Before reaching Bonifacio, at 90 miles from Calvi, you have a large choice of moorings along the rocky west coast. In the Southwest, at 220 miles, you find Minorca and the Baleares. You can reach them by a direct crossing, or with stops on the French Côte Vermeille, or on the Spanish Costa Brava.
