Thank you for visiting us at the Antibes Yacht Show

The team at bluewater would like to thank every single member of crew that came to relax and socialise with us at the crew lounge in the yacht show.

We hosted nonstop activities with the help of our partners and despite the skies opening several times, we pulled off an excellent lounge and pop up bar with the help of our friends at EGP and Shaker BarSchool for the duration of the show!

The crew lounge was yet again the place to be, buzzing with an excellent atmosphere. Although we had to improvise on several days due to the weather, we still held successful Chef competitions with Gourmet Deliveries www.gourmet-deliveries.com, cupcake workshops with Choopys www.facebook.com/pages/Choopys-cupcakes-coffee-shop/120435958030730?sk=wall&filter=12 and Pimms and Roses www.pimmsandroses.com, poker play offs, yacht crew can't jump challenges with Angelika, amazing flower workshops with our friends at Roni fleurs www.roni-fleurs.com, cocktail workshops with Shaker BarSchool www.shaker-uk.com, cigar & wine workshops with EGP www.egpfrance.com & GHD Bars with the Cutting Shop www.thecuttingshop.fr.

The renowned Chef competition was won by the Scottish chef Richard Atkins who works onboard MY Georgia Rose. Coming in a close second, was have Phil Brady (who achieved 3rd in the 2011 competition) from MY Raasta and for third we have a tie between Daniel Lamass & Marc Lassoski, both strong contenders and asset to their yachts. All of our 16 competitors deserve a thank you, as the quality of the dishes being created over the two day competition was beyond spectacular leaving our esteemed judges with full bellies and difficult choices to make…

The various events that we had to unfortunately cancel, such as napkin folding with the Cabin Shop, the treasure hunt with Lloyds and the paddleboard race with paddling in Antibes will be rescheduled in the next few weeks as we still have some excellent prizes still up for grabs! Watch this space for a pop up beach event for the paddleboard race with Paddling in Antibes & Odyssey and perhaps a bowling event with napkin folding before the end of May…

The show also saw the beginning of Club bluewater, our brand new all-encompassing online club… To find out more about what this entails please feel free to email our Club manager, Vikki, directly on club@bluewateryachting.com.

The raffle that we hosted in aid of Antibes Lifeboat was a great success, thanks to everyone that participated & all of the companies that donated prizes. We collected a total of €1681 to give directly to the Lifeboat. In true blue style, our directors have decided to round this amount up to €2000. For anyone wishing to check if they are a lucky winner, please refer to the raffle winners list: www.bluewateryachting.com/crew-training/latest-news/antibes-lifeboat

We hope that everyone that attended enjoyed it just as much as we did, and we look forward to seeing you there next year!
