St Tropez Lures Regatta Set For One Last Time

The last regatta of the season for Saint Tropez on the French Riviera kicks off in style

Paula Farquharson's Côte d'Azur Blog:

Starting today the last regatta of the season for Saint Tropez on the French Riviera kicks off in style. Les Voiles d'Automne is a highly demanding, high level competition, which requires a skilled crew to manoeuvre its banana-shaped course.

The club, Société Nautique, that organises this event created the regatta ten years ago and it draws the elite sailing crowd every year; fifty boats participated in 2004.

Definitely worth a visit to watch these elegant boats glide through the Mediterranean waters, the regatta goes on until November 14th.
