2. 17m yacht beached in Cannes
A few days ago footage of a Sundeck 550 yacht beached in Cannes in front of Baoli Beach surfaced on social media during the Cannes Yachting Festival, which was currently underway. No injuries or pollution were reported.
Despite the incident occurring right next to the Cannes Yachting Festival, the 17,35m Lancelot was not presented at the yacht show but was used by her owner to come and visit the festival. According to sources with a knowledge of the matter, the yacht was then left without any crew anchored in the sea and as the wind picked up, it was washed ashore without any people onboard due to strong winds.
Rocked by the sea whilst sitting on the beach for 6 hours, the Sundeck 550 was still however able to not withstand any damage until it was eventually tugged to the nearest harbour.
