Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed. (1)

We've been VIP spotting this week. President Macron was in Nice on Tuesday, and last weekend Prince William was in the Var for the wedding of his brother-in-law James Middleton.

Work has been ongoing since the end of August to prepare the Yacht Show, which was cancelled last year due to Covid. The 2021 edition starts next Wednesday, with organizers providing extra special activities, meetings and events for VIPs only. All visitors will have to buy tickets online and bring a health pass and a mask to gain entry.

Because of the Yacht Show, from 22 to 25 September Port Hercule is closed to maritime traffic at night, and vessels will require a pass during the day. To get an ID badge phone the Maritime Police on +377 93 15 30 16.

Since the Rentree, rail travel has been disrupted by work on the tracks between Nice and Ventimiglia. Commuters have posted photos of jam-packed platforms in Monaco, where physical distancing is clearly impossible. SNCF has taken note of concerns and introduced more and longer trains during rush hour.

Covid

On Tuesday the law requiring health-care workers to be vaccinated was voted in. The Government has made assurances that the mandate won't be extended to other professions, nor to under-12s, and health-passes will not be introduced for schools. Around 77% of Monaco's eligible population has had a first vaccination, and around 120 people with compromised immune systems have received a 3rd booster shot.

And finally...

Congratulations to Charles Leclerc who came 4th in the Italian Grand Prix after Sergio Perez was penalized for cutting a corner.
