Boats. The South of France. What's not to love? Here’s a clip promoting the Cannes Festival de Plaisance, which just wrapped up. Some of these boats are a little fancier than our nautical happiness demands, but it’s fun to look.

Every September European boaters flock to the Bay of Cannes for the festival. This year the event drew more than 50,000 visitors who came to see nearly 600 boats.
