Weekend - Cannes, It's Not Just For Films Anymore

Surely you've heard of the Cannes Annual Film Festival (The 60th Cannes Film Festival will take place May 16th to 27th, 2007), but were you familiar with the Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show? It's young compared to the Film Festival - this will only be the 29th annual Boat Show at Cannes - so, perhaps the show needs a few more years under its belt before you'll show it some respect.

The show is in Port de Cannes as usual, but this year has expanded to Port Pierre Canto as well. The event is already rocking, and goes through the weekend, so get a move on.

If you're going, and you can read French, then check out this cool interactive map of the show.

Here's how I would get there:
Fly to the Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport in my NetJet. The boat show website explains that the Cannes Boat Show is 7 minutes from the airport by helicopter. Let me know if you do that!

Oh, and check out the website for the show: hot chicks, cool music, and boats. You really can't go wrong.
