The Mediterranean, particularly the French Riviera, is the site of a few annual events that are the highlight of each calendar year within the region, and which garner attention and acclaim throughout the globe. The Monaco Grand Prix and the Cannes Film Festival are two such can’t-miss occasions in the South of France.
When you are ready to make your appearance at one or both of these stellar occasions, there’s no better way to do that than from the plush environs of your own French Riviera yacht charter.
The Cannes Film Festival – An Unparalleled Cinematic Gathering
As the month of May rolls around each year and springtime brings blossoms with warm temperatures, the entire cinematic universe of film descends on the Cote d’Azur for the Cannes Film Festival. Everyone who is anyone, along with all those who have managed to achieve fame or notoriety with their movie-making prowess over the preceding 12 months, head to this city in the South of France to celebrate their own accomplishments and to pay homage to the work of others in the field.
When it’s your turn to take a walk down the red carpet or join in with the slate of glamorous happenings at this glittering event, you could make no better entrance than from the gleaming deck of your Cannes Film Festival yacht charter.
In an absolutely ideal world, the captain of your private yacht charter will be able to secure a coveted berth at the glistening Jetee Edouard Albert, which sits mere steps from the official Cannes Film Festival venue—the Palais des Festivals. But, should you have to surrender your spot in the port to one of the yachts carrying the megastars that will be attending this year’s festival—routinely one of the most-anticipated events on the globe—your experienced captain will be able to find the perfect place to anchor off of the storied French Riviera coastline.
You’ll likely find yourself in waving distance of some of the famed attendees for this year’s Cannes Film Festival, as you both sunbathe, eat a meal or sip champagne on the decks of your neighbouring megayachts.
Monaco Grand Prix—One-of-a-Kind Automobile Race
One of the trio of auto races (along with the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans) that are collectively known as the “Triple Crown of Motorsport”—the Monaco Grand Prix is a legendary Formula One event that electrifies the Principality of Monaco each May. Because this race takes place at impossible speeds on the narrow, winding roads of Monte Carlo and whizzes past iconic landmarks, such as Port Hercules, Casino Square and the Rainier III Nautical Stadium, it is both incredibly thrilling and picturesque.
Perhaps for this reason, the Monaco Grand Prix annually draws a who’s who crowd of race-watchers. Anyone and everyone who manages to attend this world-famous event is eager to view the sleek F1 vehicles up close. Race-goers scheme and plan to get as near as possible to the track, to be able to witness every detail of the cars as they rocket by and to almost feel the whoosh of air as drivers manoeuvre these engineering marvels along the dangerous Circuit de Monaco.
An unbeatable way to experience this stunning auto race is from the plush surroundings of your Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter. See every second of the pulse-pounding action from a coveted berth in Port Hercules. Marvel at the sheer power of the F1 cars and the bravery and skill of the drivers, as you catch every hairpin turn and death-defying feat from the luxurious and secure comfort of your private superyacht charter.
Host a party on the deck of your megayacht, the perfect way to celebrate the dramatic Monaco Grand Prix as it plays out directly in front of you and your guests. Never miss a second of the competition as you gasp at yet another daring exploit. Make a toast to a perfect day and an incredible event on the Cote d’Azur. Dine on delectable hors d’oeuvres or a multi-course feast, prepared by your yacht’s personal chef and served by your well-trained and discreet crew. Marvel at automotive history being made right before your eyes from the best seats in the house on-board your superyacht charter at the Monaco Grand Prix.
