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 300 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 Pampelonne. 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.

There is no regatta more suited for presenting the BMW Individual M760Li inspired by Nautor's Swan than the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez. In October 2017, the precious one-off makes a glamorous appearance at the chic regatta.

THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS.

To mark its 25th anniversary, BMW Individual is presenting a car that stands out even amongst all the special editions and individual models of past years: the BMW Individual M760Li inspired by Nautor's Swan.

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.

Partnership.

André Beaufils, President of the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, says:
"We are delighted to see BMW return to the Voiles de Saint-Tropez. This
is a prestigious partner who will undoubtedly bring added value to the
event."
