Star Flyer is always sailing exciting itineraries and these next two weeks are no exception! The May, 17, and May, 24, sailings feature some of the most alluring and elegant destinations in the Mediterranean culminating with calls at the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco.

Saturday, May 17, 2014, the ship departed Cannes, France, while the International Cannes Film Festival was taking place. Guests enjoyed the city before taking off around 10 p.m. to see the glittering lights of Cannes under sail with the inspiring boom of "Conquest of Paradise" by Vangelis.

The week begins with calls in the picturesque southern coasts of France and Italy, including Calvi and Bonifacio, Corsica; Elba, Italy, and Lerici, Italy where guests can explore Florence or Pisa.

On Thursday Star Flyer will reach what many consider the highlight of the trip, a day at Monte Carlo, Monaco, for the Grand Prix Trials. Imagine the excitement of catching this world famous event live! The fastest Formula One racers in the world speed around hairpin bends in the gorgeous coastal city at one of Europe's most prized social events.

This will be the longest call of the trip -- from 7 am to midnight -- allowing guests ample time to enjoy the races or try their luck at the world famous Grand Casino.

Upon leaving Monaco Star Flyer will call at the renowned St. Tropez before returning to Cannes for the start of another exciting itinerary.

This time the ship will sail around Corsica with calls including St. Florent, Figari Beach and Porto before arriving at the Formula One Grand Prix Finals! We're looking forward to hearing the results.

Memories From Monte Carlo to Malaga

Star Clippers guest Pam recently sailed for two weeks from Monte Carlo to Malaga on Star Clipper and caught a rare glimpse of Royal Clipper and Star Clipper sailing side by side.

"This is a photo of the Star Clipper taken while leaving Port Vendres. The tenders took us out for a photo op during the calmest seas we had experienced in our incredible 14 night tour from Monte Carlo to Malaga! We had the time of our lives and cannot believe it is over!

During this photo op we also had the Royal Clipper alongside. We were told that this is a rare event, that they do not often have an opportunity to be in the same place at the same time and we felt very lucky to have had the chance to witness them both, dancing amongst each other on the sea."

Thanks, Pam, for sharing your experience and photos with us!
