A great celebration of yachting

Since 1996, Les Voiles d’Antibes, organized every year around the first week of June, marks the opening of the Mediterranean circuit for Tradition Yachts and Metric Classes (and the first leg of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge from 2006 to 2018).

Organised at the very beginning of the season, Les Voiles d’Antibes welcomes each year a selection of the most beautiful Yachts of the Era (built before 1950), Classic Yachts (built before 1976) and Esprit de Tradition Yachts as well as the Metric Classes (6 MJI, 8MJI and the 12 MJI competing in the America’s Cup from 1958 to 1987), which have shaped the great history of International Yachting since the end of the 19th century.

But Les Voiles d’Antibes is also in the purest tradition of Yachting, 5 days of entertainment and conviviality back on shore. The welcome ashore is certainly the warmest on the circuit. Organised around a village designed on the theme of celebration and conviviality. Antibes, famous all over the world for its Jazz festival, had to combine music and sailing. Every day from 9.00 am to 10.00 pm there are numerous exhibitions and events on the themes of the Sea and the Environment, but also cocktails, concerts, parades and many other surprises and challenges which every evening bring joy and good humour to the Village des Voiles and the Port Vauban.
