Re: South Coast of France Anchorages

We plan on day trips to around Nice before we go over to Corsica, Sardenia, Sicily, around the boot then spend a bit of time in Croatia/Montenegro before going back down the East coast of Italy then finding somewhere to keep the boat for the winter. Looking at Google Earth it doesn't seem like there are many anchorages along this route for the first couple of days. With normal winds out of the NW, is it possible to anchor off the beach and dinghy into town? Any recommended anchorages on the first part of that trip? I was thinking first stop near Cape d'Adge, then Marseilles and shorter trips from there to Nice.

Any advice would be appreciated.


We cruised extensively in those areas, and covered our travels and the availability or dearth of anchoring in our website Alan & Joan's adventures sailing Moonstruck from America to the Mediterranean. Joan Teed's Art.
