Today is the final day of the “Les Voiles de St. Tropez”. Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is the amazing rendezvous of yachts at the end of the season. Since 1981 the regatta takes place every year from the first week-end in September until the first week-end in October.
All started with a competition around the ton “Nioularge” of two crews of a classical yard and a modern boat.
Today sailers of more than 300 sailing yachts from all over the world participate in the race. Each day there are two regattas; one for the classical ships and one for the modern yachts.
It is a fabulous and great event! If you look on the Golfe of St. Tropez during the day you see nothing but white sails. In the evening you will find closely lined up sailboats; one nicer than the other.
