Don't miss the 39th edition of the Royal Regattas, one of the international regatta season's most iconic sporting highlights. Dedicated to classic and vintage yachts, this event draws in over 150 boats of all sizes, for a total of just over a thousand crews.
The Cannes Royal Regattas is the ultimate Panerai Trophy competition, and brings together to world's most beautiful and oldest sail boats still in working condition. The number and sheer diversity of the boats make this event on the Côte d’Azur an extraordinary celebration of the sea and its adventurers.
An incredible choreographic treat of pontoons, anchorages and marquees that bring the port of Cannes to life over the course of the three days that separate the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Royal Regattas. Participants, visitors and spectators alike make themselves at home on land and at sea in a warm, friendly and cosy atmosphere. For once, stars of the silver screen step away from centre-stage, handing the limelight over to the boats that flock here for the last stage of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, a world yachting championship.
Every autumn, the red carpet is rolled out to welcome in these traditional yachts and 'lords of the sea', as they flaunt the elegance, charm and character inherent to each and every one of these period boats. Some iconic names bear mentioning: Tuiga (flagship of the Yacht Club de Monaco), Moonbeam IV (35 metres, winner of all classic races), Manitou (boat belonging to President JFK), and the majestic Eléonora with its formidable 41.60 metres. If yachts are your thing, come on over to the Royal Regattas in Cannes! Make sure you book your stay to set sail and enjoy the races from the sea.
