Show season curtailed
Sailors wanting to see this season’s new launches and latest equipment will have to contend with reduced shows and private viewings.

The big show of the autumn was due to be the Cannes Yachting Festival in mid-September, but that was cancelled on 21 August. On the same day it was announced that the October shows in Annapolis are off. The Grand Pavois La Rochelle event has also been cancelled.
