    Dont get me wrong , there are still a lot of yachts, but the really big ones arent in the bay of Theoule.
    Last year I had big yachts, Hermitage was almost here everyday. And Lady Britt, Streamline, etc... Every morning I wake up hoping I can take a nice picture, but nothing worth taking a picture.

    And there aren't alot of Arab people either cause of the ramadan.

    Thanks! Normally I don´t like jumping and splashing boat pictures, but this one doesn´t look too scary...;)

    I must add a funny thing on this. Just this afternoon I was at a store to check if a new issue was out and as I often by mistake is buying the same issue twice, I was looking for the ad. After looking forth and back several times, I discovered it was ripped out by somebody... :) (Not many Swedish ads there I suppose...)

    Should you not be scared?! I think it looks like a Delta Powerboat groupie/stalker ;)

    Ombreetsoleil, despite the lack of big yachts keep up the good work, it is really appreciated.

    I made a nice trip from Theoule sur Mer to Port Grimaud and St tropez.

    I have filmed the whole trip, but this amazingly slow french internet connection is already keeping me busy for two days uploading it to youtube.
    Bare with me.

    And well worth the wait and your effort.

    After seeing your vid I must say Fort Lauderdale has nothing on you and the French Riviera!!

    Thanks again for the James Bond thrill a minute escapade!!!!

    Thanks guys,

    It was a great and hot summer although I still have the feeling that there were less big yachts.
    Port Grimaud is cool but I am amazed at what prices those little places go for.
    80sqm average is above the €1 mill . But it's mostly because you get a berth with the place.

    Yeah that video was really nice! what I like to is how you linked the fast running with the upbeat/thrill/adventure part of the James Bond theme then the more sedate parts of the music coincided with the slow motoring through the canals, wake restricted areas and so on. Loved it, thanks so much! The headache was worth it!
