Anchors aweigh!

 

Dear readers,

 

It’s time to settle down somewhere comfortable and enjoy a well-earned break. This magazine will take you on a journey around the stunning scenery of Lake Geneva and almost certainly give you a mad desire to hop aboard one of the magnificent Belle Epoque boats of the Compagnie générale de navigation (if you aren’t already relaxing on one this very instant)!

 

This edition will present the eight historical boats, genuine jewels of the lake, with the Rhône scheduled for a general overhaul starting in the spring. We will dive behind the scenes of the CGN shipyard and discover the history of the legendary Fête des Vignerons in Vevey. We will also take a look at the consequences of climate change on Lake Geneva before visiting the islands scattered around the lake.

 

Finally, the agenda will provide an overview of all the not-to-be-missed events in 2019!
