From 26th - 29th of May 2017

The Ancasta Motorboat Club is pleased to announce the first of its 2017 event dates and this is one NOT to be missed.

With the aim of creating a series of well supported and fun events for Motorboat owners, the destination for this event is Honfleur.

Its Vieux-Bassin (old harbor), lined with 16th- to 18th-century townhouses, has been a subject for artists including Claude Monet and native son Eugène Boudin. It is an idilic spot with authentic cafes, resturants and shops surrounding the Marina basin.
