    Beaulieu-Sur -Mer

    We made it 92Nm and 16hours later, it wasn’t the worst crossing but definitely not the nicest either fortunately all my preparation helped and I was able to do all my shifts. We could see the glow of the French coast from about 40miles out, that’s the first time in ages. We arrived early and tied up to the fuel pontoon for a nap while we waited for everyone to wake up. At 9 we tried to radio, no response, and then phone the harbour office, sims now invalid! The lady manning the fuel pontoon called for us and it looks like we got the last spot in the Marina. Breakfast and then check in and watched the Rugby World Cup final, not a bad game but quite bitty, the staff commiserated with us on the result. Lunch and then a stroll to the Cap Ferrat headland. We thought about visiting the Rothschild Villa but decided not to. It started to hammer down so we stopped for coffee, when will I learn, even with a sweetener I couldn’t drink it!Read more
