Hill Robinson is delighted to confirm its continued partnership with Les Voiles d'Antibes.
Taking place out of Port Vauban from September 15th – 19th, the 2021 edition of this iconic event expects to welcome over 70 yachts.
This is the 26th edition of the internationally acclaimed regatta. The five-day event features four days of racing and an action-packed shore side agenda of entertainment and celebration. The prestigious gathering is renowned for its camaraderie and conviviality, and the organisers remain committed to the event’s family-focused atmosphere.
Competing yachts will be split across three classes:
Period Yachts – yachts built in wood or metal, launched before December 31st 1949
Classic Yachts – yachts built in wood or metal, launched before December 31st 1975
Spirit of Tradition Yachts – yachts built since 1970 that have the appearance and style of a traditional period or classic yacht.
Safe sailing and fair racing are key initiatives of Les Voiles d’Antibes and crew who display effective team work and a care for their fellow sailors are rewarded with a prize, presented by Hill Robinson.
This year’s regatta also sees the shore-side events take up a new location on the dock. The yachts, organisational team and sponsor tents will be located on the Môle Sud, and the food, drink and entertainment tent will be near the big wheel on Grande Roue.
The event organisers are proud to continue their commitment to the environment, with the regatta’s carbon footprint offset via Yacht Carbon Offset.
