We have no regrets in choosing to go small and simple for a long sail, rather than a tease well beyond our means (megayachts can be charted for up to 1 million Euros a week). Yet, we’d love to sneak a closer peak at how the rich and famous live. With a $350 entrance fee effectively keeping riff-raff like us out, we’ll just enjoy the evening mini-Vegas light show shining from the megayacht masts. Then, we’ll push off into a quiet shallow anchorage they’d never be able to approach.
