Les Voiles de St Tropez is the most extravagant Mediterranean regatta with evening events and parties!
Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is one of the most significant events in the world of yachting and certainly the most beautiful Mediterranean regatta. Both ultramodern yachts and rare wooden yachts participate in it. Yachtsmen from all over the world get together in the beautiful bay of Saint-Tropez to find out who is better. Yachtsmen of different levels of training, including beginners, take part in the regatta. On our platform, you can choose a team that will be perfect for you.
Sports competition at sea is well combined with an entertainment program on the shore. And it couldn’t be different in the world-famous luxury resort of Saint-Tropez.
The founder of the regatta is the director of Club 55 Beach Club — Patrice de Colmont. The history of the regatta began 30 years ago, in autumn 1981 with an impromptu race between two small yachts. How it all began? The two participants planned a route and rushed to the finish line, which was opposite Club 55. After the race, both teams celebrated and had fun in the club restaurant. During the dinner, a reporter from a local magazine came up to them and later he wrote an article about the regatta in Saint-Tropez. From that moment, the history of this regatta with a unique adventure spirit, which it has preserved so far, began!

The regatta starts in the Old Port of Saint-Tropez. The Old Port is a traditional very beautiful place for such regattas. After daily competitions in the bay of Saint-Tropez, there will be an exciting evening program. If you want to walk around Saint-Tropez, then there are many cafes, restaurants and boutiques on this beautiful resort.
Yes, of course. There will be an experienced skipper and team members on the yacht. They will give you a role and teach you everything you need to know to be a useful team member and feel comfortable.
Yes, all team members will definitely try themselves in different roles to better understand each other. Standing at the helm is an integral part of training for beginners as well as setting sails, and helping the team during moorings.
As a rule, participants in the regatta live on the yacht. The boat has everything you need for a comfortable stay: nice beds, a kitchen, a shower with toilet. If you do not want to live on a yacht, then you can arrange to stay at the hotel onshore.
The crew decides altogether what kind of food they prefer to eat and makes necessary purchases. Simple dishes can be cooked, usually taking turns. Some regattas offer daily meals and intensive evening program for all crews.
We can make an invitation for a visa, but you need to apply for a visa by yourself.
Most people tolerate some seasickness easily. If you feel that you are starting to feel sick, it is best to get at the steering wheel or tune the sails. Get yourself busy, show your body that you don’t have time to get sick, you have to fight for victory in the race. There are also many quite effective medicines from sickness. If you start taking them in advance, then the probability of seasickness is almost zero.
Before each trip, we organize an online meeting where participants get to know each other and the captain. The captain will answer all your questions. The crew will have a group chat so you can get to know each other before the start of the regatta. Then you will meet in the marina.
The main rule is to dress comfortably and according to the weather. Clothing: • windbreaker and pants or shorts; • shirt/jacket with UV protection (thermal underwear and fleece); • adjustable hat/cap; • gloves. We recommend to purchase a long-sleeved jacket with UV protection in order to protect yourself from the sun and strong wind. Yachting shoes should be: • light, with non-slip white outsole; • with the fixed heel; • with a tightly closed nose. During the sailing without shoes, you can fall or injure your fingers and feet on the deck. There are many protruding parts on the boat that are easy to catch. Unfortunately, even experienced sailors are not protected from unpleasant injuries when they ignore this simple rule.
