Sailing Hanse 575 from Cannes to Saint Tropez and back

For the 1st time ever on a monohull we have met Stefan, the owner of this beautiful Hanse 575 based in Cannes and decided to rent it for 3 days and we loved it. On our last day we had +40knots of wind and crazy waves on our way back to Cannes but sadly we could not record with the GoPro. A great experience with calm wind, medium and crazy weather conditions.
