Yachting events on the French Riviera in 2021

Monaco Yacht Show – September 22th to 25th, 2021

Monaco Yacht Show

The Monaco Yacht Show is anchored every year in the Principality’s Port Hercule, and this year the organisers have focused on superyacht enthusiasts. You will be able to discover sixty superyachts, from 25 to 100 metres, among which forty or so world launches by the most solid builders, Benetti, Oceanco…

300 exhibitors are coming this year, and the reception conditions will be “covid safe”.

New this year, the “dockside area” includes exhibitors dedicated to the construction, design and management of superyachts. At the Monaco Yacht Show, you can not only order your new floating palace, but also find a tailor-made partner for your yacht.

The show will also appeal to sailing enthusiasts, as the Quai l’Hirondelle will host sailing boats. Finally, for your accessory pleasures, tenders, water-toys and other luxury cars will also be presented at the show.

Cannes Yachting Festival – September 7th to 12th, 2021

Cannes Yachting Festival

It is in the Old Port, in front of the prestigious Palais des Festivals of Cannes, that the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every year.

This year, the show unveils nearly 600 boats, including 140 previews.

While the Old Port concentrates the bulk of the show’s offer, with 450 units, from 5 to 45 metres, the Port Canto hosts 108 yachts from 10 to 35 metres, as well as some fifty second-hand boats over 22 metres.

Complementary to the Monaco Yacht Show, the Cannes show plays the eclecticism card, with boats up to 45 metres. Here, the diversity of the offer is in fact played out, and you will find sailing boats, motor boats, monohulls, multihulls, hard or semi-rigid hulls.

In Cannes, the organisers are playing the lifestyle card, both through the offer strictly linked to yachting and through the “luxury galery”, in the heart of the Palais des Festivals, where you will be able to discover craft products or products serving the art of living and exceptional know-how.

Contact us to land directly in Cannes, by helicopter or private jet. We will then offer you a chauffeur-driven car service or luxury car rental to reach the port of Cannes. The best way to experience the Cannes Yachting Festival in an immersive way is to rent a yacht. You can then anchor in the bay of Cannes or between the Lérins islands to enjoy the event.

Les Voiles d’Antibes – September 15th to 19th 2021

Les Voiles d’Antibes

Usually organised in June to mark the start of the summer season, the Voiles d’Antibes is this year in line with the major events on the Côte d’Azur dedicated to the world of yachting.

The event honours the boats that have marked the history of international yachting. Classic yachts, Esprit de Tradition, and Metric Classes are thus brought together to participate in a regatta in which the values of sport and conviviality are combined.

The regattas take place along the 23 kms of coastline along Antibes and Juan-Les-Pins.

In addition to this sporting event, there are exhibitions and activities dedicated to the marine world. The Port Vauban of Antibes comes alive from morning to night, to the joy shared by the many visitors, participants and onlookers. The Village des Voiles awaits you in the heart of Europe’s leading yachting port for a few days of celebration of the noble history of yachting.

The Excellence teams will organise your arrival. Helicopter to Cannes or Nice, then luxury car rental, or yacht rental to anchor in the Bay of Antibes and enjoy the regatta spectacle as closely as possible, we will design your trip with you to make the Voiles d’Antibes experience as magical as possible.

Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez – September 25th- October 9th, 2021

Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez

Otherwise known as “Nioulargue”, the Voiles de Saint-Tropez marks the end of the summer season in Saint-Tropez.

The year 2021 will be both festive and convivial as the sailing event celebrates its 40th anniversary. As every year, the crews of the most beautiful boats in the world, ultra-modern or sometimes more than a hundred years old, will anchor in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez to celebrate their passion for yachting. Cigarettes and old rigs meet in a sublime maritime ballet.

Two weeks of regattas will punctuate the Voiles de Saint-Tropez. The first week will bring together traditional sailing boats alongside modern boats up to 60 feet, while the second week will be reserved for maxi yachts.

Two weeks during which the whole village of Saint-Tropez comes alive and pays tribute to its history. The corsair city comes back to life in a very different atmosphere from the summer, as old rigging and boating enthusiasts take the place of the summer visitors.

To take advantage of the Voiles de Saint-Tropez, Excellence offers you a wide selection of sublime villas or yachts for rent for an exceptional stay. Our teams can also book for you hotels, restaurants, luxury cars… so that your only concern during your stay in Saint-Tropez is to live intensely the experience and the atmosphere of Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez.
