Star Clippers is offering a seven-night sailing voyage round-trip from Cannes along the French Riviera to coincide with the 2011 Monaco Grand Prix. The four-masted, fully-crewed, 170-passenger tall ship, Star Flyer, will be anchored off Monte Carlo until midnight on Sunday, May 29, the day of the race, so guests can go ashore to watch the action and soak up the Grand Prix atmosphere.
The cruise departs Cannes on May 28. In addition to the day in Monaco, ports of call include L’Ile Rousse and Bastia in Corsica; the glamorous village of Portofino; Hyeres island; Sanary-sur-Mer; and St Tropez, with calls at the town and the beach.
This will be the second year running that the 170-passenger Star Flyer, one of the world’s largest and most luxurious tall ships, has been in Monaco for the Grand Prix. Passengers will be within easy reach by tender of all the action and the head-turning vessel will be one of the most beautiful ships on the scene with her graceful lines, four masts and teak decking.
