Les Voiles de St Tropez

Les Voiles de Saint Tropez


Saint Tropez is iconic. The ultimate summer destination, known for its glamour and attracting the best of the best. Once a sleepy fishing village and commercial port,  the town rose to fame through its connections with Hollywood greats such as Brigitte Bardot.
 
Saint Tropez undoubtedly attracts attention; its beautiful natural setting and stunning bays are as celebrated as its well-heeled visitors. The 18th annual Voiles de Saint Tropez - a major sailing regatta - draws exceptional crowds, over 200 magnificent yachts and contemporary sailing boats, as well as competitors and sailing enthusiasts from all over the world. The enthusiasm and sporting endeavour behind what started as a challenge between friends in 1981, remains key to the event today.
 
First held 27 years ago, this year’s edition of ‘Les Voiles’, which runs from 24 September to 2 October, is set to be the most exciting to date, with memorable names, classic yachts and changes to the harbour space to accommodate the growing crowds, not to mention the elegant opening ball. Standards increase year on year and the competition is a visual spectacle, as traditional yachts and sail boats gather to compete in the magnificent bay, all in the running for the coveted Rolex Trophy. With five days of thrilling racing, ‘Les Voiles’ creates an unforgettable combination of beauty, performance and skill, set to the enchanting backdrop of Saint Tropez and the Var coastline.
 
Walking the quayside offers the opportunity to view some of the world’s most beautiful classic yachts and it is an ideal setting from which to soak up the atmosphere and take in the impressive scale of this event.

While the harbour is the epicentre of activity during the regatta and provides exceptional vantage points, the whole village enters into the spirit, with festivities held throughout the town, and the famous Place des Lices becomes a hive of happy activity.
