    Wow, what a crazy storm Snoopy.

    I heard about this too from a captain. Apparently there was quite a bit of damage to superyachts up and down the French Riviera in various ports. I think even the usually safe haven Villefranche was seeing bad conditions. Monaco too. What about the Italian ports San Remo etc?

    Does anyone else reading this know anything more about the bad weather or experience the storm? Send us your stories or photos!
