Even though the French Air Traffic Controllers were on strike, that didn't stop the crowds making it out to Cannes this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Yachting Festival. The sun shone bright and boy did the wind blow. With gusts of over 28 knots, it was certainly hold on to your hats weather!
R-Six returned to Cannes, where last year she made her international debut. This year she arrived fresh off the back of her impressive performance at the RORC Rolex Fastnet Race where she took second place in the multihull class, although by now we have come to expect nothing less of Team R-Six, such is their remarkable race record this past year.
The Cannes Yachting Festival itself went well and HH66-01 R-Six once again stood out from the crowd, impressing all who came on board with her spacious interiors, exquisite finishing and lets not forget those awesome clear-coat carbon hulls. In the year and a half since her launch she has developed quite a following with many visitors recognising her from various regattas and articles that she has featured in, and who were excited to have the opportunity to come on board and take a look around.
For everyone at here HH Catamarans, we had renewed pride for this incredible yacht and it was an honour to have her back in Cannes again and to have received so much praise.
Thanks to everyone who came to see us in Cannes, and to the organisers for once again putting on a fantastic show. Thanks too to our French agents Magalie Raison and Laurent Ludwiczak from Navis LR for helping us show the boat so well.
See you again next year!
