Hi,

On May 31st and June 1st was the 2014 edition of "Bateaux en Fête" ("Boat Festival" ?) a yearly event that has been arranged by the Massy Modèles Club for more than two decades.

Over 70 enthusiasts with more than 130 boats: sailing ships, offshore powerboats, yachts, trawlers, leisure boats, OSVs and of course tugs !

Here's a footage shot on board the Sequana, featuring mengam's "toy for tugs" the Spirit of Archimedes.

Watch in HD, fullscreen ! Captions are in French only (i'll add English subtitles Youtube but there isn't much to read anyway).

Video can be downloaded here if you'd like better picture quality than on Youtube (right click/save as; 1.5GB !).

Here are two pictures galleries:
chrisdau's Picasa album
Alain's pictures on the MCCR site (scroll down).

I have a couple pics too (including megam's "rescue"  :D). I'll post them later.
