This season we saw record highs along the French coast – Hot sundrenched days spent with crew dipping their toes into some of the most famous spots along the Rivera. Sailing, laughter and a few hangover to boot saw yet another busy summer season for the Mischief Crew – thank you all so much for coming out and getting ‘Mischievous’ As the days grow shorter we put her back on the shelf and head for home, family and friends. Alex & Frank
The days are shortening – the Trevi Fountain was closed so 3 sailors headed north taking in the Tuscan Islands, Corsica and back over to the mainland – great sailing weather saw us have some epic days – the tequila made an appearance and we all agreed with a few unrepeatable ‘Northern’ phrases. Thanks Dad and Uncle Martin
The Pirates came to celebrate a birthday – it all started calmly under the blazing sun but as allegiances were formed the crew became mutinous.
As May turned into June the first intrepid sailors flew into the South of France for some sailing – the water is slowly warming up so only the brave ventured in – Light sailing weather, new anchorages and chaos in the kayak meant tired heads found pillows after relaxing days and strong coffee kick started the mornings.
Round One saw Jacki & Waffaa sipping wine while Elias and Finlay kept the skipper on his toes.
Round Two with James and Sarah started with plenty of tequila and the discovery of the mix of red peppers and anchovies (great one James) while Cap Ferrat won best anchorage and James steered us along the coast.
Round Three – Elia, Seaman Nestor and the McGriffin duo left the boat and our liver’s wine stained. Books and sunshine with even a trip to the Picasso museum ensued. Another great anchorage between the islands off Cannes added to the list before both the Skipper and Frank bid them farewell and collapsed from exhaustion.
A weekend of sailing, August 2013.
A well deserved break for the city slickers saw us enjoying light winds and lots of laughter.
Pete did the heavy work and the girls drank…
A bucketlist of glamorous places that we ticked off with relish.
These are the playgrounds of the rich and famous and… Mischief, if your looking for something a bit less rustic to tell the inlaws about.
