Jeanneau Owner's Rendezvous 2016

I was fortunate to get invited to this event, sponsored by Jeanneau, in the BVI. I met a number of interesting people and it was an opportunity to meet my fellow Jeanneau boat owners as we travelled around various destinations in the BVI. I've created this page with a selection of photos from the event so that anyone who sees the odd picture they might fancy can select them out and request a higher-resolution shot. These are scaled to 1920x1080 pixels, but the originals are 6000x4000 pixels and rather large for a web page.

Malcolm and his red wine Malcolm ordered a glass of red at the bar, and was pleasantly surprised at the taste, but it turns out that they gave him a glass of the most expensive wine in the house and there was a certain amount of sticker shock involved.
