Some kind of Mediterranean season is a clear indicator that life is going back to some sort of normality. Sure it’s not perfect, but in the context of a global pandemic it’s an encouraging development. Lefts see how people are behaving. At least the boat is fit again and most of the year I will use it as my "office" as it is so much more save cruising to the ports and shipyards then getting stacked on congested motorways or full trains.
In truth we’re all waiting to see how the next couple of months will unfold. For me it has been reassuring to hear that at this stage both Cannes Yachting Festival and eventually Monaco Yacht Show (*)are set to go ahead as planned.
Also the shipyards in Italy have begun to come back and continued with their constructions and continue which their projects for new yachts.
The expectations for both shows is so great across the industry, it gives all in the industry something to look forward to.
(*) till 26th May MYS said the show would go ahead as a not-for-profit event. It seems they have since changed their decision and will not host the show until September 2021.
