Enjoying Marseille

While the crews of the 11 TP52 Series yachts and the six GP42 Series yachts continue their preparations and training in the perfect weather, the Audi MedCup Circuit race village in the centre of Marseille continues to be very busy.

At the weekend the dockside walks around the City’s Vieux Port are teeming with visitors, enjoying the ambience and taking in the historic landmarks and sights. But the focal point at the moment is Audi MedCup race village and the interactive Expo with the grinding competition, the information centre which reveals details about the boats, crew and the Circuit as well as the Cinema and the Audi driving games.

After visiting the EXPO Marie Rubio, a local visitor who lives in Marseille, said: "It's a fantastic organisation and we are learning a lot. “

Massimo, an Italian visiting Marseille from a cruise liner docked here said: "This is very nice. We just arrived today on a cruise, and so this was a big surprise!"

The Audi MedCup Village will be open daily until Sunday 14.
