Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is back on the sea
Published on in Saint-Tropez
The famous regatta called the Voiles de Saint-Tropez (Sails of Saint Tropez), born out of a challenge between friends, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. There’s no doubt that everyone, skippers, crews, sailing enthusiasts as well as spectators, will be eager to get together again this year, from September 25th to October 9th, for this glamorous and exciting nautical event! Book your stay at the Bastide de Saint-Tropez to experience all the fun and spectacle.
A sporting challenge
What began in 1981 with the passion of two friends for regattas has today become a much-loved sporting occasion, pitting nearly 300 classic and modern craft of all sizes against each other, each in their specific racing category. Seen from the land, the spectacle of multi-coloured sails spread throughout the gulf is simply magnificent. Especially since the starting line is right in front of the town. Your Bastide de Saint-Tropez team will advise you on how to get the most out of the event.
A unique atmosphere
The Voiles de Saint-Tropez is also an opportunity to rediscover the true village spirit of our seaside resort. Regulars and newcomers all find a welcome here and conversations start over an aperitif. The Village des Voiles brings together spectators and participants and offers a wealth of activities throughout the two weeks of the event. Price reductions, DJ sets, concerts, and much more enliven the evenings. The first week is devoted to races for old and modern boats below a certain size, with more than 250 vessels expected to take part! The second week will see some 30 maxi-yachts compete against each other in a breathtaking spectacle.
The Voiles de Saint-Tropez marks the end of the summer season. It’s an opportunity to experience the friendly and welcoming ambiance of the world-famous resort and discover the commitment of those who are passionate about the sea and regattas. Come and meet them on the quays during your stay at the Bastide de Saint-Tropez ...
