An entertaining program in Sète

After a few days of maintenance and cleaning up we started our summer program in the Mediterranean! This means day sails and events for Randstad in France in the cities Port Vendres, Sète and Nice.

The Randstad organization has been using a very successful formula for years now when theyare on board the Clipper. Guests can enjoy the stay on the ship but there also is a  very entertaining program with various activities as well as musical support by the music-band  "Ace Officiel".
A cocktail dinner was the very first event. A number of our nautical crew members helped the hospitality team to make the evening an even greater success. Guests were able to talk and eat and of course it was possible to dance as well.

THE TRAMONTANE

The next morning we prepared the ship for a day trip. The local wind, the Tramontane, wasblowing severe and had a wind force of about seven to eight. We managed spectacular sailing without anyone being seasick. Due to the strong wind, we decided to return to the harbour in time for our guests to be able to eat  in a much calmer environment and to enjoy the nice music.
