Excellent French Food

by MM212 about Restaurant Félix

Restaurant Félix is an institution in Cannes. It is located in the centre of la Croisette and has been in existence for decades. Recent renovations gave it a sleek look, and the food is excellent, but quite expensive. If you can afford the bill, it is definitely worth the experience.

Classic & Tradition Racing Yachts.

by breughel

I was really lucky to be in Cannes at the end of Sept 2008 for the 30th Anniversary of Cannes' Régates Royales, Panerai Trophee, and to be able to see marvellous racing vessels built between the second half of the 19th Century and the end of the 20th.
This was a festival of passion and knowledge of building sailing boats, preserving and racing with them. Sure it is a passion for billionaires but what I like with these billionaires is the fact that they help carry through century a magnificent inheritance. There is also no common point with the billionaire's luxus motor yachts on the other side of the Cannes harbour; at the sailing yachts quays I could not distinguish the owners from the ordinary crew.

The classic yachts were moored at quay M. Laubeuf (west side of the Vieux-Port) and access to the quay and pontoons was free for the public.
These racing yachts are classified in three historical categories:
- Vintage Yachts built in wood or metal, before end 1949.
- Classic Yachts built in wood or metal before end 1975.
- Spirit of Tradition Yachts built since 1970 using modern techniques and materials, but respecting the look and the style of a traditional Yacht.
Furthermore there are the different types like Schooners, Yawls, Ketches, Gaff Cutters or Marconis.
Here I'm usually getting lost even if I know the difference between a Marconi and auric sail. Fortunately each vessel showed an explanatory board mentioning type and characteristics.
The "vintage yacht" on my first photo is the 32 m ketch "Thendara" from 1936.
The crew is taking the aperitif after the race.

This year from 17/09 to 24/09/2011.

"A village, but an international village."

by etfromnc

My page title is the way that several people described Cannes, and each swore that they used that little catch-phrase long before our Secretary of State Clinton decided that this is what it takes. I suppose that it is rather small but in late June it was quite crowded and I cannot imagine what it must be like during the Film Festival. Nevertheless, the life long locals seemed to be very warm and cordial. I would like to go for a longer visit but it is not at the top of my list, more due to the weather than the people. If you go, Le Suquet might be a better place to get to know the real Cannes.
Cannes and Nice may probably be considered as the cornerstones of the French Riviera but, from my brief visits, I would characterize Cannes as Fantasyland and Nice as much more a place of the common people.

The Secret of the Suquet

by happyboy48

"We noticed everyone was starring"

My wife and I were reading how tourists were flocking to Paris to follow in the footsteps of Robert Langdon from the Da Vinci Code. I thought it would be cool if we had our own thiller only in Cannes. Here goes nothing!

Our Story starts with our hero a not all there character Stanley L Broebek is pondering a recoverered note from a Cannes Hotel where some diamond smugglers had been arrested. There was no sign of the diamonds.Only a short poem that read ...........

"4 Freds and a Chuck"

Four Fredricks
Meeting the Lord
Point the way
What could this mean?
Stanley decieded to go for a walk, as he does his best thinking during his strolls.He headed for the Crossette. It was a beautiful day the sun was shinning and people were out enjoying the weather.Suddenley at his feet Stanley looks and gasps. Its Chuck Norris"s hand pointing toward the Crossette.Stanley remembered his performance in "Dodgeball" a great movie.Stanley couldn't understand why it had no showing at the Cannes Festival although he suspected it was because of the negitve portraial of the French Judge. Stanley heads for the Crossette.
