Les Voiles d’Antibes, the prestigious gathering for legendary boats

Since its inception in 1996, Les Voiles d’Antibes has been an eagerly anticipated event on the sailing calendar, marking the beginning of the Mediterranean circuit for Traditional Yachts. Scheduled annually around the first week of June, this year’s event, taking place from May 29th to June 2nd, promises to uphold its reputation as a celebration of adventure, luxury, and sporting tradition.

Les Voiles d’Antibes attracts a selection of the most beautiful Vintage Yachts, Classic Yachts, and Esprit de Tradition Yachts, including the esteemed Tofinou 9.5. These vessels, built before 1950 for Vintage Yachts, before 1976 for Classic Yachts, and in the spirit of tradition for the latter category, embody the rich history of international yachting.

With roots dating back to the late 19th century, these yachts carry the legacy of a bygone era, where values such as fair play, solidarity, and respect were paramount. Les Voiles d’Antibes serves as a platform to honor this heritage while providing a competitive and friendly environment for participants to showcase their sailing prowess.

The event is not just a regatta; it’s a spectacle of elegance and grace on the azure waters of Antibes. Against the backdrop of the French Riviera’s stunning coastline, these majestic yachts glide gracefully, their sails billowing in the breeze, as skilled crews maneuver them through the courses with precision and finesse.

Les Voiles d’Antibes is more than a sporting competition; it’s a gathering of sailing enthusiasts, historians, and connoisseurs who come together to celebrate the timeless allure of traditional yachting. From the captivating races to the vibrant social events, the atmosphere is filled with camaraderie and excitement, creating memories that last a lifetime.
