Bonus for the Laser Masters
Those of you who are planning to go to Hyères for the Laser Masters and can spare a day or 2 before the races start on 5 October should seriously consider taking a day excursion to St. Tropez and catch a bit of an amazing regatta - Les Voiles de St Tropez. Its last 2 days of racing are 3 and 4 October which are registration days for the Lasers.
This is a regatta which brings together 300 boats - split between classic and modern. Take a look at the Regatta website and drool over the beautiful J class, JI class and others. St Tropez is only about 40 Km from Hyères although you will need a car since St Tropez has no train station.
I realise that some of you dedicated types (such as you folks who have been spending a lot of quality time with your special hiking bench) may be too busy with last-minute training/practicing to consider this, but it should be a great opportunity to see something a bit different from Lasers.
