What we're about

Hi, my name is Eric, your French captain. I started sailing at 12 and never stopped since.
I want to take you sailing in the best spots in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean to share with you my favorites spots and witness the beauty of land and ocean from a luxury sailing yacht.
I want to make you taste all the flavors of the Mediterranean dishes.
I want to transmit my 50 year old passion of the sea to you.
You will sail, explore, learn, dine, keep yourself hydrated :), maybe learn how to improve your cooking skills, swim, dance and most of all have a memorable experience with your fellow guests, myself and our French cook (Max group of 6).
Each couple has its own double bed cabin and bathroom.
Are you coming?

The French Riviera on a 42' sailing catamaran - 1 week



Bonjour fellow travellers!
The French Riviera is where I grew up, sailed, delivered boats up and down the Mediterranean. So many sights, harbors, coves, little towns to discover that 6 days will be plenty to show you the best spots.
My goal is to share with you the French way of living on a sailboat which includes, travelling, exploring, good food, wine, music and lots of good humor.
Here is a sampling of the dishes to expect from your Mediterranean chef:
Breakfast: eggs, cheese, ham, croissants, pain au chocolat and our famous baguette (cereals if you wish)
Lunch: a variety of salads: nicoise, greek, taboule, nordic, rice salad, all with lots of ingredients and flavors from the south of France.
Dinner: (1 or 2 included depending on schedule):
Calamars a la Cetoise
Rougail saucisses
Grilled fish or meat
We also have a tradition before dinner to have an aperitif with little things to get your appetite going; crackers with tapenade, brandade, artichokes, grissini, vegetables, mussels...etc.
No! you will not gain weight...as long as you burn it all :) it's actually very healthy food so no worries and stay away from the delicious selection of cheeses...if you can.
We start from Saint Raphael.
