In the world of Formula 1, the Monaco Grand Prix is widely regarded as the jewel in the season’s crown. Admittedly the racing isn’t generally that great, but it’s the glitz and glamour, the vast number of celebrities and social elite and, of course, the huge yachts in the famous harbour that make it the event that it is.
The Monaco harbour is always busy, full of everything from small pleasure craft to sailing yachts, superyachts and even megayachts that are too big to even fit in the harbour. Why are we talking about this? Well, it’s nearly time for two of the jewels in the yachting calendar, the Monaco Yacht Show and the Cannes Yacht Show, just down the road on the French Riviera.
