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.

Securely moored to the quay, or cast adrift?
With boating, you have to cast the lines off in order to go and get into it. With boating, you have to cast the lines off in order to go and get into it. However, when it comes to your insurer, you kind of expect that they’re going to be as bound to you as the standing rigging is to the mast, the ring frames to the hull, or the engine mounts to the runners, and the propellers to the shafts, skegs and cutlass bearings. Whom would you rather be insured with?

Thirteenth Blog from on board Perie Banou II
Well I am anchored off Jamestown Saint Helena. Good place to be. So it is. Jon is at St Helena in the Atlantic - British ilse after some of the French ones he has been to. He's off seeing the island and catching up with his friends from the little Swarbrick, Liberdade. As usual, full of beans and living life, remembering heaps and always factual, given how much he reads on board. Yet another great tale, so dive right in...

Jon's steady progress sees him arrives in St Helena in the South Atlantic I am on the ocean as I type. By the time you read I should be tied to a mooring Jamestown, British island of Saint Helena, South Atlantic. Since last writing it has been mild. Wind behind pushing me. My mainsail - always 1 reef & wee jib. Progress good and comfortable. One can get squalls, often more to the west than where I am. Night time squalls.

The former music video producer’s first feature film was a cult star before going on to become a wee bit immortal, as per its main characters.
