If you are a multihull fan and anywhere within reach of La Rochelle, this could be for you. The Grand Pavois Boat Show, the 'one for real fans', at La Rochelle from 25th - 30th September, will present an area dedicated to multihulls.

The essential Atlantic rendezvous, the show will bring together thirty boats on Pontoon 10, with a number of new launches and world previews.


A market sector growing dramatically across the world, multihulls represent an important part of the market for the French, as well as the international, marine industry. Because of this, if many French boatyards will be present at La Rochelle, you can also count on the presence of Chinese, American, German, Swedish and Danish boatyards.

For the first time, and in its first world-wide presentation to the press and public, the Victoria 67 from Fountaine Pajot Catamarans will be on display. A long-awaited premiere!

Also to be seen: the star of the May Day Boat yard, none other than Bob Escoffier's future long-distance cruising catamaran.

Other new launches for 2013 are the new Lagoon 39 and 52; the Dash MKII from Corsair Marine, which is still developing the concept of the trimaran with folding beams; the Bandit 870, presented in its final version; the Cumberland 47 LC from Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts; the two Swedish Kiss 1 and 2 … not forgetting the Nautitech 442, which will be shown in two different versions.

The Grand Pavois, the essential meeting-place for lovers of multihulled boats.

Jon Sanders is closing in on Reunion and Mauritius The west coast of Australia is now a long way behind. Then it was 3 reefs in the mainsail. Windy. A wind one gets in the region - history shows it has been the same over the past 400 years - Southerlies. Soon the wind bends. And we get the South East trades proper. For the first 1,000 Nautical Miles the Trades were what I expected. Very strong southerlies leaving the Australian shore (Shark Bay).

Parlier reigns supreme in Hydrofoil Worlds
The south westerly breeze kicks over the land mass over north facing beach, making for flat water despite strong wind. Whatever the shortcomings of the Fremantle Doctor on the first day of competition, were made up for in spades on day two, when the wind kicked in early at 15 knots and quickly built to 18 with gusts as high as 26. The Rockingham course is perfectly suited to such conditions. The south westerly breeze kicks over the land mass over the north facing beach, making for flat water despite strong wind.

Ensign want to sell your boat!
Ensign have had such a successful sales year that they are now looking for more pre-used stock to sell. Ensign, one of Australia’s largest yacht brokers, have had such a successful sales year that they are now looking for more pre-used stock to sell. At their head office location at Main Beach, Queensland, they can offer amazing rates on berthing while the boat is on sale at their Marinas Cove Marina and that means great exposure.

Oh no - not the coffee cup Oh no - not the coffee cup - Jon keeps us all entertained as he approaches Reunion Island. The B&G chartplotter tells me since leaving the pleasant mid Western Australian town of Carnarvon (by world standards, an isolated town), that I have sailed some 2559 NM and have 751nm to go to Le Port Reunion Island. French. Reunion is a Suburb (department) of Paris. Population 844,000.
