Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez – the spirit and emotion of these words alone reveal the breath-taking spectacle that takes place on the Côte d'Azur each September. This highlight at the end of each sailing season attracts more than 350 yachts, spanning all sizes and ages. Majestic J-Class yachts, which competed for the America's Cup in the early 20th century, make a spectacular sight as they go head to head in an unrivalled assembly of classic yachts, their gleaming varnish and sweeping lines drawing admirers from all over the world. At the same time, the most contemporary, state-of-the-art carbon fibre racing machines dazzle onlookers with their efficiency and power as they speed silently across the water.

 

First run as La Nioulargue over 25 years ago, born out of passion and friendship, the regatta was founded following a challenge between two keen sailors who held an impromptu race between Saint-Tropez and Club 55 in Pompelonne. Their spirit of competitiveness and camaraderie remains, and the values of tradition, teamwork and fair play still live on and are shared by all participants.

THE REGATTA.

Tradition meets modernity. Mahogany meets carbon fibre. One week of regatta sailing is "interrupted" by the traditional "Lay Day." In keeping with the spirit of Les Voiles, the Challenge Day requires even greater commitment from the volunteers: private challenges take place on the water, followed by parades and crew parties.

BMW is a prestigious partner who will undoubtedly bring added value to the event.
