CANNES: I am off for a two-day yacht trip on a magnificent sail boat. We will start at the Vieux Port in Cannes and sail straight to the beautiful Lérins islands which are right in front of Cannes. Both islands are very small and only on the Ile de-Honorat is a small monastery, which is still inhabited by some monks who make delicious l’Eau de Vie of the fresh herbs grown on the island. The Ile Sainte-Marguerite has two small fish restaurants and a fort which hosts a spectacle once a week.
It would actually be enough to just sail between and around the islands and go to shore maybe for a lunch or a walk through the pine woods of the island. But if you sail towards Saint Raphael you will discover more and more small bays which invite you to take a swim in the sapphire blue sea. Take everything with you to make your time on board perfect and remember that at night you need a sweater or cotton shirt like Coco had at the beginning of her fashion career, when she made a blue and white sailor shirt combined with a pair of sluggish trousers a must-have look not only off shore.
