The boat is well laid out and configured for short handed sailing.
No gps in cockpit, so remember to bring your iPad.
The location is great, with many options to moor with protection from weather, whatever the direction.
The shore support was superb. We suffered some gear failure ( after 40 knot winds) but were given great support and were quickly repaired and back on our way.
The boat we booked was relatively old, so I was very pleased to find it in perfect condition, The sails were new which helped us along in the relatively light winds we experienced. The sea breeze always kicked in later in the afternoon but this needs to be balanced with finding a spot in the more popular anchorages and marinas
Saint Mandrier was relatively easy to get to by pubilc transport (for some reason Google maps does not have Toulon transport options but get the bateaux bus from the port in toulon (short bus ride or 15 min walk), There is free parking too. The marina is a lovely place to start / end cruise with wide selection of restaurants around the marina.
Check in / Check out was thorough and importantly fair.
we've just come back from a weeks sailing in Hyeres, the location is great with lots of islands and very nice anchorages. The boat did have a few little issues, few loose grub screws on door Handels and Bimini and no tools to fix, as well no markings on the anchor chain and no one seemed to know how much chain and wrap was on the boat, but apart from that a great weeks sailing in the sun.
Thank you for your service provided during our vacation.
