The magnificent event that celebrates the world of sailing and yachting in Saint Tropez is due to commence once again on Saturday 30th September 2017.

Over 300 boats and 4000 sailors are expected in the harbour for Les Voiles de Saint Tropez 2017 - which takes place from Saturday 30th September until Sunday 8th October. Undoubtedly one of the most important events in Saint Tropez, this competition will showcase traditional yachts, as well as their modern counterparts, with ten nations being represented. Some of the most beautiful classic and modern yachts in the world will take to the waters in the event that will close the regatta season in Saint Tropez.

A fan zone will be created around the port so that the festival atmosphere can be enjoyed by locals, participants, and visitors to the event. One date during the event that should not be missed is the ever-popular crew parade which will take place on Thursday 5th October.

The programme for the entire event is available on the website for the event - see here.
