There are already a good number of sailing events in Cannes, but the upcoming Cannes Régates Royales in September will probably cap them all. It will feature 100 year-old yachts – some up to 50 meters long – in a spectacular regatta. The bay at Cannes is almost perfect for this, as it is wide and features a number of islands. It is, however, noted for its unpredictable wind changes.
The Régates Royales – Panerai Trophy – will be held from September 24th until October 1st. For more information, a spectator’s guide and some tasty photos of the yachts, visit Régates Royales.
