Boat is moored in front of BSV. I thought it was owned by a Russian but it is flying a Union Jack.

As I type two side hatches are opening up. Expect they plan to use a smaller boat to come ashore.

It came in sometime late evening or overnight. His (Roman Abramovich) plane was at the airport (pretty sure it was his) yesterday and now it appears to be gone.

I am at Atrium and it appears to be just in front us but due to the size and curvature of the bay, it is deceiving. It is just beyond the Le Grand Bleu yacht.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Maybe that was the airport noise and lights around 11pm, Abramovich arriving?

Lots of private jets coming and going. Bandit came in yesterday and was still there last night. Time for Bucket regatta! https://bucketregatta.com/

So many possibilities: medical transport; notables arriving or departing; prisoner transport; or who knows - maybe an over-zealous or anxious plane owner working on and testing out mechanics of his plane. In November we spent a full afternoon listening to someone working on one.


Respectfully,

He came in about 10:30 yesterday morning. We raced his plane down the runway!

Abramovich is Russian, but Eclipse is registered in Britain. He owns the Chelsea Premier League Soccer team.
