Yachting celebration.

Since 1996, Les Voiles d’Antibes, organized every year around the first week of June, mark the opening of the Mediterranean Classic Yachts regattas and the first stage of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.

Organized at the beginning of the season, Les Voiles d'Antibes - Panerai Trophy welcomes each year a selection of the most beautiful Yachts of the Era (built before 1950), Classic Yachts (built before 1976) and Yachts ‘Esprit de Tradition’.

For most participants, this prestigious gathering is the first major event of the Mediterranean season. Mythical yachts such as Cambria, Moonbeam 4, Moonbeam of Fife, Mariska, Hallowe’en, Outlaw, Adria … who have long been present at all regattas participate in the Voiles d’Antibes which is known not only for the quality of sailing area but also for the great conviviality. Undoubtedly one of the main events of the Mediterranean circuit and with the purest tradition of Yachting, 5 days of animations and conviviality upon return to quay. The reception on shore is certainly the warmest of the circuit. Organized around a village designed on the theme of celebration and conviviality.

Antibes, famous all over the world for its Jazz festival, had to associate music with sailing. Every day from 9 am to 10 pm, there are numerous exhibitions and animations on the themes of the Sea and the Environment, as well as cocktails, concerts, parades and many other surprises and challenges that every evening animates with joy and Good mood the Village of the Voiles d’Antibes and the Port Vauban.
