The storm has risen… Wind and rain, this 3rd day will unfortunately be cancelled out of prevention. But it is only part remission…

We hope you enjoyed this first edition!

Many thanks to all stakeholders and participants (speakers, boating and boating professionals, SNSM volunteers, association members, chefs, shopkeepers, artisans and our wonderful facilitator Mr. azara!) who have embarked on this first adventure with us and thanks to the visitors!

Bravo also to Miss Sonia Louis who was able to concretize the idea of the director of the port, Mr. Donnini David by setting up this show of Nauticism and the Plaisance.
