Notes From The Editor

Week Ending 13/05/2011

Superyachts.com is at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival this week; a time when the world’s most prominent film stars arrive to preview brand-new films and when a host of amazing superyachts come to anchor.

This week Superyachts.com proudly helped produce an event with Calvin Klein aboard Vantage, the impressively styled 45m Palmer Johnson superyacht, celebrating the opening of the 2011 edition of the world renowned festival.

It was a fantastic experience to attend and cover this sophisticated event with Calvin Klein, a gathering which expertly highlighted the elite lifestyle of the festival itself.

Looking on to the shores of Cannes from the aft of Vantage, where various premiers, events and parties made themselves known through a display of lights, lasers and flashes, I was genuinely proud to be part of something so special.

However; what really worked to emphasise the prominence of this globally renowned event were the numerous superyachts standing proudly on the water just off Cannes.

With the 115m explorer yacht Luna sat just off the coast of Antibes, she stands just a short distance away from the stunning display of yachts anchored for the festival; most notably Alfa Nero, Octopus, Lady Moura, Vantage and Oasis.

We were also fortunate enough to attend Calvin Klein’s second successful event of the Festival last night, which welcomed some very influential guests from the film industry, such as Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Hudgens and Emily Browning, to celebrate ‘The Women of Cinema’.

We've been very busy, so I’m looking forward to bringing you all the exciting updates, footage and images from the 2011 Cannes Film Festival as there are, no doubt, many more to come.
