Les Voiles de St Tropez Yacht Charter
There is no better way to see out the end of the Mediterranean’s spectacular regatta season than by attending Les Voiles de St Tropez. The best way to enjoy the creme de la creme of this yachting rendezvous that takes place each year? Aboard a luxury charter yacht, of course. Established in 1981 as La Nioulargue, this week-long regatta brings together 300 of the industry’s most stunning classic and modern sailing yachts, which compete for bow to bow in a series of races. Launched by the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, not only do yachts from around the world come to participate in this race against the beautiful coastline of St Tropez, many come to soak up the warm and palpable atmosphere.
Usually taking place during the last week of September or the first week of October, Les Voiles de St Tropez is arguably one of the most exciting regattas of the entire year. Drawing in sailing and racing enthusiasts from around the globe and thousands of spectators, the port of St Tropez is transformed into a bustling, thriving hub of activity. Secure a front-row seat to action by chartering a luxury yacht for the week or even participate in the regatta itself by chartering a sailing yacht! Limited to 300 entries, Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is open to yachts measuring over nine meters in length. The race classes are separated into five different classes: the Traditional Class, the Modern Class, the Esprit de Tradition Class, the Wally Class, and America’s Cup Yachts Class, and the race is made up of intricate coastal courses. Some of the world’s most famous and iconic sailing yachts participate in the regatta, so don’t miss out on taking part in the experience of a lifetime.
But if you’d rather join the spectators and take in this racing spectacle from the sidelines of the French Riviera, a luxury charter yacht is the perfect way to enjoy the regatta. Mingle with A-listers and the jet-set during the day at the port of St.Tropez, feeling the buzz of the races among the crowds or retire to your yacht to watch the race in privacy from the deck with a drink in hand. During the races, enjoy taking your charter yacht out into open waters to closer view the race, taking full advantage of your unique watching platform. In the evening, the port and town come alive with several parties that take place on stunning yachts and exclusive venues in celebration of a successful day of racing. These elegant events and soirees last throughout the week, both onshore and off. By chartering a luxury yacht, you also have the advantage of securing the most stylish and comfortable accommodation during Les Voiles de St Tropez. If a week’s long regatta is not sufficient excitement, glamour, and thrill for you, then why not consider including the event as part of a wider charter along the stunning French Riviera?
With plenty to see, indulge and participate in, a luxury yacht charter during the Les Voiles de St Tropez is the only way to end the Mediterranean regatta season.
