I am getting excited about my forthcoming trip to Europe. Not only will I be covering the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique for the first time, I will also be attending the big classic car auctions taking place in the Principality on the same weekend. Then it is straight on for the Mille Miglia start in Brescia before heading back to Lake Como for the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza. The following week will see me in St Tropez for the Riva meeting and the Voiles Latines sailing. Its not all fun in the sun though as I do have to provide copy and images for a raft of magazines including Rewind and Unique Luxury of course, Volante, Invictus and New Zealand Classic Car, another title for which I now contribute as a feature writer on a regular monthly basis. Before packing my bags however, this weekend I will be covering the Australian National Maritime Museum’s 2016 Classic and Wooden Boat Festival where one of the star attractions will be the stunning 1924 luxury ketch Hurrica V featured in Baz Luhrmann’s film The Great Gatsby.
