A Little Slice of Gatsby at the Bois de Vincennes

At the Bois de Vincennes this weekend, Prete Moi Paris held it's first annual Coupe d'Eté Rowboat Races. The event was a wonderful success. Thank you to Captain Melissa for recruiting me as the official photographer to document it. Have a look at some of the photos below.
The race was close, but towards the end the girl's team pulled ahead and finished first. For the grand prize, the winners received a bottle of champagne which they generously shared with the rest of us. ;) The dress code was "white", but only Melissa, her boyfriend Charles, Simey and I complied. Too bad! The pictures would have been much better with everyone stepping out of The Great Gatsby to come to the boat races.

Do you see 'em Skipper Simey?
Close, but no cigar for the guys

If you're in Paris next summer keep an eye out for the second annual Coupe d'Eté.

Looking forward to rowing with you next time!
