SWIFT TRAWLER RENDEZ-VOUS 2017
friendly Swift Trawler event
The Swift Trawler rendezvous, organized in close collaboration with the BENETEAU dealer CORSICA MARINE, took place in Corsica, from 15 to 18 June. Saint Florent is little corner of paradise at the foot of the western side of Cape Corsica and this year it welcomed the participants on this 7th rendezvous. 17 crews, including one from Italy, met up on Thursday 15 June to register for the event. The three days included some wonderful anchorages beneath a dazzlingly sunny sky, with the Le Loto beach, Le Lodu straw hut, the Salleccia beach on the programme – magnificent sites that enchanted the members of the Swift Trawler fleet.
Some of them revealed their sports abilities during a stand-up paddle and Tiwal competition. Well done to the winners Anne Gourcuff (BENETEAU team) and Jean-Yves (Gary 2 boat team).
The event came to a conclusion on Saturday night in the middle of the countryside among the vines, calves and sheep, with prizes awarded to all the crews to the sound of Corsican and Breton songs.
The following day, the crews left in high spirits with their sights set on the 8th rendezvous! Some crews even prolonged their weekend to enjoy boating in the company of some the other participants!
We would like to thank the Port of Saint Florent that greatly contributed to the success of this event!
