I spent a couple of winters aboard a ketch
moored at Golf Juan next door to Antibe. That was a long time ago but I doubt the weather
has changed too much.
My memories of those winters are weeks of dark skies, COLD and most of all HEAVY WEATHER! When a 'Mistral' came in we knew we were in for sometimes days of big winds and bigger waves crashing over the sea wall and big swells coming into the harbour. Everyone stern tied. Near us was a converted high speed landing craft from the second war. It had huge engines. During some storms the owner had both engines screaming it full throttle for hours trying to keep from being pushed on to/in to the volkwagon sized rocks that made up the sea wall while his family
watched from the shore. During one storm our ketch
come loose and smashed into the Aga Khans luxury yacht and our bow sprit make a large hole in its bow and then we were smashed stern first onto the wharf and our transom was torn off. Our boat
sunk . Our ketch was a Bristol pilot boat made of teak
I'd find a very safe place and get some warm clothes and lots of books
We were caught in the same storm that caused the Italian cruise ship
'Leonardo D Vinci' to go aground of the beach in front of Cannes.
Very disturbed seas there. Be careful.
