Yachting events on the French Riviera in 2022
Les Voiles d’Antibes – June 1st to 5th, 2022
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 occur along the 23 km 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 to celebrate the noble history of yachting.
The Excellence Riviera teams will organize 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.
Cannes Yachting Festival – September 6th to 11th, 2022
The Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every year in the Old Port, in front of the prestigious Palais des Festivals of Cannes.
The show unveils nearly 640 boats this year, including almost 140 new models from Benetti, Arcadia Yachts or Mangusta Yachts. While the Old Port concentrates the bulk of the show’s offer, with more than 530 boats from 5 to 45 meters, the Port Canto hosts more than 120 brand-new yachts from all over the world.
To complete the Monaco Yacht Show, Cannes plays the eclecticism card, with boats up to 45 meters. Here, the diversity of the offer is played out, and you can find sailing boats, motor boats, monohulls, multihulls, and rigid or semi-rigid hulls.
This year, a space is reserved for 100% electric or hybrid boats, presenting a dozen units from 8 meters. Eco-responsible development is highlighted in the new “Green Route” course and the “Innovation Village”.
In Cannes, the lifestyle is essential, both through the yachting-related offer and through the “luxury gallery” in the heart of the Palais des Festivals where you can discover handicrafts or products highlighting the art of living and exceptional savoir-faire.
Contact us to land directly in Cannes by helicopter or private jet. We will offer you a chauffeur-driven car service or luxury car rental to attend the event. The best way to live 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 Lerins islands to enjoy the event.
Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez – September 24th- October 8th, 2022
Otherwise known as “Nioulargue”, the Voiles de Saint-Tropez marks the end of the summer season in Saint-Tropez.
The year 2022 will be, as every year, both festive and convivial.
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 250 traditional sailing boats and modern boats up to 60 feet, while a second week will be reserved for 50 maxi yachts.
Two weeks during which the whole village of Saint-Tropez comes alive and pays tribute to its history. The corsair city returns 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 your hotels, restaurants, and luxury cars so that your only concern during your stay in Saint-Tropez is to live the experience and the atmosphere of Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez intensely.
