Port Vauban at Antibes on the French Riviera (Cote d'Azur) is a perfect marina to start your cruise on the sailboat RM1260. Depending on the length of your rental, your Mediterranean cruise allows you to discover the “Cap d'Antibes”, the “Iles Lérins” in the bay of Cannes, the “Esterel” with its lovely creeks and bays such as Agay, Bay of St. Tropez, “Cap Taillat”, the Islands of “Porquerolles” or the extraordinarily creeks of Cassis.
Corsica and Sardinia is rather recommended for two week cruises.
During your holiday, our fast-cruiser RM1260 offers you 3 cabins, and all comfort and security that makes your Mediterranean sailing trip an remarkable moment with your friends / family. The RM1260 is equipped with the latest electronic equipment, such as multi-touch tactile gps/tracer, pilot, radar, sonar with downvision, audio sound system, etc.
With nearly 100m2 of sail (Genoa 49m2 and mainsail 50m2), and its displacement of 7.2 tons, you will enjoy top performance even at low wind (4-6kts). And as soon as the wind rises (>15kts), you just have to roll up the Genoa and open the Solent of 26m2 to continue your cruise in comfort and safety before taking reefs (>20kts). The RM1260’s maximum beam of 4.35m, mono keel 2.2t, draft of 2.25m and its bi-rudder ensures high stability during your cruise.
Leaving the Port Vauban of Antibes to the north-east, you cross the “Baie des Anges” and bay of Nice to anchor in the bay of “Villefranche” or around “Cap St. Ferrat”.
Leaving the Port Vauban of Antibes to the southwest, in direction of “Cap d'Antibes”, you will discover the “Iles Lérins” that invite you to an idyllic anchorage. Continuing along the coast, you cruise along the red coloured rocks of Esterel, with its many creeks to anchor / swim before heading to the bay of Agay that offers you a mooring on buoys (~ € 16 / night) and a shuttle service to reach the coast, the beach, shops, restaurants.
After Agay you pass the “Cap Dramont” with its turret on an island in the direction of St. Tropez. And why not a stopover in the port of St.Tropez? – Always worthwhile an experience !!! After St. Tropez, you may anchor at “Pampelonne” beach, or much better “Cap Taillat” which offers a sublime anchorage in Caribbean-style waters! Depending on the time that you have needed to reach “Cap Taillat” (about 40NM from the port of Antibes), you may still have time to make a trip to the islands of “Porquerolles” ....
