La Rochelle is a relaxed but lively city, midway down France's Atlantic seaboard, with a fast TGV connection to Paris. A pair of stone forts guard the narrow entrance to the old harbour, whose quays are lined with numerous cafés and seafood restaurants. Just outside the old port is the modern marina, Port Les Minimes, one of the largest yacht harbours in France. In September, it hosts the Grand Pavois – attracting 100,000 visitors – while each July, Les Francofolies, a music festival, fills the old town with song. A 150-tonne Travelift and refit facilities for yachts up to 90 metres are close by.

Welcome to Superports!

With data on more than 600 Superyacht marinas, the Dockwalk team is pleased to present its online Superports directory.

Previously only available in print, the Superports directory contains information including contact details, facilities at the berth and local services. It also provides vital logistical information such as lat/long co-ordinates, berth numbers and sizes, prices and distances to local airports.

What's more, the whole thing works with Google mapping. Select a region or enter a location, rollover an anchor and see the name, location and photo of the marina. Click on it to load all the info on your chosen marina.

When you've chosen a marina, you'll notice a list of local services classifications in the right hand column. Right now it's fairly empty. That's where you come in.

We're building the site around our users, and we want to publish the things that are most useful to you. As you travel around the world, you can recommend the best bars, friendliest agents, most efficient electricians and the quickest taxis - to name but a few. And as the directory builds up, you can look up services that have been recommended by other Captains and Crew.

So if you've had a great night out, found the best surf shop or been impressed with an emergency repair, click on the Recommend A Local Service link and share it with crew around the world.
