Magellan Jets is proud to announce their partnership with Polo Club Saint Tropez. Polo Club Saint-Tropez is located in Gassin, one of the most beautiful villages in France. Gassin is located between Saint-Tropez and Pampelonne beaches. Annually, between the months of April and September, 14 international tournaments of different handicap level take place, as well as practice and exhibition matches. For each tournament, the Polo Club Saint-Tropez organizes beautiful events and dinner parties. For the 2011 season, the English team SEZZ has kept their title for the 2nd consecutive year by winning the Gold Cup against the newcomers of the Thai Polo Club. It was a very close match, with a final score of 5 to 5. This year, the polo season has ended with the traditional Gold Cup dinner to celebrate the accomplishments of all participants.
The players have been offered a variety of prizes, designer clothing and watches, champagne bottles by Taittinger, a membership card by Nota Bene, some Introspective Glass trophies, a technical hat by Raceline and of course the Silver and Gold Cups. The best playing Team Patron of the Silver and Gold Cups, Roderick Vere Nicoll, received a voucher for a stay at La Messardière hotel. In addition to the polo matches, the Polo Club Saint-Tropez hosts private and corporate events, such as gala dinners, weddings, product launches and seminars. Due to this, it is fair to say that it is one of the top attractions in the South of France. Magellan Jets looks forward to collaborating with the Polo Club Saint-Tropez on future events, both in the United States and abroad.
This is not 18th Century France, and Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are not in power, yet many French citizens are so infuriated with their President that they are tempted to bring out the guillotine. President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy is currently being criticized for purchasing a new luxury plane. Tension is running high as Sarkozy boarded his £150 Million private jet yesterday for the first time, heading to South Korea for the G20 summit.
Dubbed the Air Sarko One, the new jet is fitted with a double bedroom, an air-conditioned smoking room, and an anti-missile system. The double bedroom with its en-suite bathroom is reported to be directly behind the cockpit. The bedroom links to a private office where an air filter system allows the president to smoke cigars. There is also a conference room equipped with top of line communication equipment and technology. Close to the back of the plane there are 60 club-class seats for ministers, aides, and favored journalists traveling with the president. And at the “far” back of the plane there are an additional 12 seats, economy class for cabin crew.
As France battles an economic recession, opposing politicians have expressed their disproval publicly, stating that the new plane is “too flashy”. Government officials have supported the purchase of the plane, insisting that the Airbus A330 was a necessary expense.
Conflicting views leave many wondering if preventative measures should be instilled to avoid government officials overspending in the future. Do you think something needs to be done to ensure that money is being saved rather than squandered?
