    This is the 2005 "Rahil" by Bloemsma Van Breemen, not to be mixed up with the new 2012 "Rahil" by Mariotti Yachts.

    Sorry for the confusion, since I was thanking you for posting pics from a French local I used an old humorous coloquial expression to thank you, Merci Buttercups = Merci Beaucoup!

    Hi YN

    That was a joke son!

    Foghorn Leghorn - YouTube

    When we wanted to give our high school French teacher a hard time instead of responding Merci Beaucoup, we would all scream in unison at the top of our lungs, "Merci Buttercups Monsieur Cobb!".

    Well I guess you had to be there........

    I must say that it's a dissapointing summer here.................Well the weather is great, but it seems that this summer most big yachts are in Sardegna en Ibiza.
    Normally there are megayachts mooring in the bay every day, but bow its only Rahil that is still hanging around.

    Also in front of Cannes its nothing special..........I saw Le grand Bleu she arrived for the fireworks and she left inmediately.........There arent't a lot of russians in town either:confused:

    Recession has truck here very obvioulsy.
    Shops are also complaining.

    The yachts seem to like Greek destinations and Hvar, Dubrovnick, Croatia.
