Low-key Cruising Vibes in St. Tropez

October 12, 2020

Saint-Tropez, France

Condor is back in the Med and making good use of the warm autumn days, including visiting one of the few events still on the calendar – a toned down version of Les Voile de Saint-Tropez. The Gunboat team together with Loick Peyron enjoyed a few days of sailing in the area with prospective clients and journalists, shadowing the big monohull racers as well as appreciating the stunning classics in all their glory.

Condor did the 170 mile trip from La Grande Motte last Tuesday in full cruising mode. With Wednesday racing cancelled due to excessive winds, many of the fleet took the opportunity to stop by the first Gunboat 68 of the series to explore the boat for the first time.

Thursday and Friday the Gunboat 68 really earned her reputation as we went out in very light air and glided along with our fractional code zero at 9 knots in just 7 knots of wind. Did we mention the tanks are full and the bilges are stacked with French wine?

Evenings greeted the fleet with vanilla skies as we entered back to the timelessly beautiful old harbor of St Tropez.
