About the event
Les Voiles de St Tropez is an amazing rendezvous of yachts. First run twenty-six years ago as La Nioulargue, the regatta gathers together the most extraordinary modern sailing boats alongside the most beautiful traditional yachts in the early autumn. A host of racers and sailing enthusiasts come from all the corners of the globe to do battle in the bay of Saint-Tropez. The Rolex trophy is awarded to the winner of the Classic Division over 16 metres.
St Tropez is located on the French Riviera near to Cannes and Marseille and is famous for its millionaires as well as being where Brigitte Bardot was discovered. It’s a beautiful p[art of the world and somewhat of an eye opener with the multitude of prestigious super yachts both power and sail around as well as the awesome classics here for the regatta. GYR also runs a Milebuilder adventure sailing package from the UK to St Tropez for this wanting extra sailing miles.

Why we love Les Voile de St Tropez
St Tropez is a beautiful part of the world and full of beautiful yachts and ‘beautiful people’! Last year was our first time there and we were stunned by the visual spectacle of so many awesome yachts; the classics, the Walleys and the top end modern racers all together in one regatta.
