I am at the Grand Pavois which runs from 15-20 September in beautiful La Rochelle, France and have taken the opportunity to board several yachts. The French yacht manufacturers are well represented, as you can imagine! Some of the yachts that I boarded are very popular for charter. The range of Lagoons starts with the 380, then 400, 420, 450 and 500. Also in the water are a fleet from Fountaine Pajot including the Mahe 36 and the Highland 35 Pilot power cat both extremely popular choices for charter in the BVI.
