Sailing boats or floating works of art?

Published on 06-17-2016 Agenda

300 of the world's most beautiful sailing boats race on the clear waters of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.

The Voiles de Saint-Tropez is the unmissable event before the end of the season. The race is an occasion to showcase classic, 100-year-old, sailing boats as well as Wallys futuristic in design. Just like the previous ones, this 18th edition will celebrate the Oceans in the most gracious way, with good mood and nautical fair-play.

The various visitors of Saint-Tropez enjoy the incredible show of floating works of art struggling to ride the waves. Inhabitants and tourists, casual or hardcore lovers alike gather during the day to feast their eyes with the regattas, and party in the narrow city streets at night. The major event this year will once again see the various crews parading along the docks of the old Harbour on Thursday 1st, around 7:00 p.m.
