A Season On The Sea


If sailing and yacht shows are your passion, you’ve definitely come to the right part of France.

From yacht shows to regattas and races across the Mediterranean Sea, the sailing calendar is packed with exciting events over the next few months in the south of France and Monaco.

At the end of June, the Riviera will host a unique regatta called Les Voiles de l’Espoir, an event that occurs only once every two years.

This special regatta aims to involve children in remission from cancer and leukemia in the sport, with professional crews guiding them out on the waves.

The 2024 edition will take place from June 15th to June 22nd, with a scheduled stop in Monaco on June 19th.

In the height of summer, the Palermo-Monte Carlo regatta will set sail from the Gulf of Mondello on August 20th, making its way to the Principality via Porto Cervo. The winner's ceremony is scheduled in Monaco for August 25th. Registrations are still open; for information on how to participate and more details, please visit the event's website.

Later in the season, the 46th Cannes Royal Regattas will take place from September 23rd to 28th. This prestigious event has become one of the world’s premier classic sailing competitions, known for its professional participants and diverse range of categories. Sailors from around the globe, from novices to seasoned professionals, aspire to attend or compete in this regatta.

Down the coast, the annual Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez will be held from September 28th to October 6th. First organized in 1999 by the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, this event showcases a stunning mix of classic boats, some over a century old, and cutting-edge modern yachts. Approximately 250 vessels are expected to participate this year.

As part of a local tradition that attracts an international audience, there will be two major yacht shows this Autumn.

First is the Cannes Yacht Show, running from September 10th to 15th, featuring up to 700 yachts.

And of course, the
Monaco Yacht Show. This annual event in Port Hercule is scheduled for September 25th to 28th. MYS has established itself as one of the world's premier showcases of innovation and luxury craft, drawing significant international attention.
