We miss you!

Exactly a year ago, the news broke that the eleventh edition of the International Multihull Show at La Grande Motte was being cancelled... in its wake, every major yachting event suffered the same fate, with the exception of a few shows in the United States. And once again it was March 24th, the day we found out that the twelfth edition of the show wasn’t taking place either.

As we reached the end of the first quarter of 2021 however, it looked like our lights were back on green, particularly in Anglo-Saxon countries. Not for nothing that after the bleak 2020 season (30% of the usual participants in November 2020), the ARC transatlantic rallies are already fully booked, eight months before the starting gun is due to be fired! In the meantime, our team has managed to keep working and stay on course with our editorial line - multihulls, nothing but multihulls! We have introduced you to new multihulls (35 tested in the past eight issues), dream destinations, technical features, second-hand bestsellers... Frankly, we don’t think we’ve done too bad! But there’s one thing that’s been wrong since March 2020: Readers, we haven’t seen you in person! We haven’t been able to discuss and exchange other than by video, by email, by phone...

There was the recent virtual Paris Boat Show, in a way a bit like a good role-playing game, that made the professionals happy. But in the end, very few people were connected! So we wish for only one thing - that the (real) boat show season can begin again. Let’s hope that the Cannes Yachting Festival, scheduled for September, will be the first event to be actually happen. And that it will be followed by La Rochelle, and then Annapolis in October... Anyway, we will be there, at our booth and on the pontoons, as soon as it’s possible to do so.

And we hope to see you there too!
