Les Voiles d’Antibes
📅 From June 1 to 5, 2022
📍 Port Vauban, Antibes
Hoist the mainsails! The Voiles d’Antibes has marked the start of the Mediterranean season for traditional yachts since 1996. During the first week of June, vintage yachts come here to compete in a frenetic race, following strict sporting traditions. Nearly 60 boats with 500 crew on board fight it out to be the first to cross the finish line in their boats from another century. Adventure and luxury unite as the yachts take to the sea with their wires strumming in the wind.
At the south pier of port Vauban, amateurs and connoisseurs can admire these exceptional sailing ships and enjoy exhibitions from local artists, giving both young and old plenty of opportunities to discover this maritime world.
The esplanade of the Pré aux Pêcheurs changes character as dusk falls with a programme of musical entertainment to transport us into an exceptional atmosphere with a breathtaking setting!
