In the meantime, take a closer look on board with Quentin Mayerat, Loïck Peyron and Benoit Lebizay in this sea trial / interview video by Skippers Magazine:

Gunboat sailing photo incorporated into the Visual Identity of Cannes Yachting Festival 2022

This year we are honored to see the Gunboat 68 chosen as one of the three yachts incorporated in the event artwork, to convey the visual identity of the show! For their artistic adaptation, Cannes Yachting Festival selected a drone photo by Patrick Condy featuring TOSCA under full sail on a Transatlantic voyage.

"For 2022, the Yachting Festival is unveiling a new and glamorous visual identity, which is in line with continuity while highlighting three units representing the show: a superyacht, a catamaran sailing boat and a dayboat. This new creation retains the main characteristics of the show's DNA: elegance, clean lines, calm sea, horizon and lovely lifestyle that all inspire navigation. This new design also features a couple sharing a wonderful moment in an incredible setting. The Yachting Festival is a showcase for the gems of the seas, which highlights unique skills and the craftsmen of shipbuilding. It enables everyone - sea lovers, yachting fans, seasoned visitors and those who are simply curious - to discover a world, in an idyllic setting emblematic of the French Riviera."

"We are delighted to unveil our new image and to have successfully illustrated both the countless assets of the Yachting Festival and the atmosphere of the show, which I feel is nothing short of magical. The exhibitors and visitors here alongside us last year could sense this special atmosphere as much as we could. Despite a difficult public health context, we all took real pleasure in coming together and seeing boats "in the flesh" rather than online! 2021 saw record visitor numbers, with over 54,000 visitors coming to admire 110 new boats between 10 and 35 metres in the Sailing Area, over 480 motorboats between 5 and 45 metres in the Vieux Port, and of course the second-hand boats over 22 metres exhibited in-water in the Yacht Brokerage Area. They were also able to discover the new Innovation Area for the "smart" start-ups of the nautical sector, as well as over 50 exhibitors presenting an environmentally-friendly concept with the new "Green Route". Our goal for 2022 is to both expand the offer of the show and to give greater visibility to eco-friendly approaches, new technologies and luxury in the noblest possible way," explains Sylvie Ernoult, Director of the Yachting Festival.
