Parade of traditional “pointus” fishing boats during the Nice Port Festival, June 9, 2018. Pointus boats derive their name from their pointed stern and tall bow sprit (“pointu” means “sharp” in French). These little boats were originally powered by latin sails and by oars, but now use standard motors when fishing the Mediterranean.
