These nautical cathedrals (certain units featuring over 1,000 square meters of sails) will fill with joy the spectators, offering them a magnificent show while racing along the 24 km of Antibes’ coastline. A Sports’ events doubled with a four days fiesta and fun in the “Village des Voiles” as well as in the old city.

Whether as a spectator or participant thus promises to be a fun event in the elegant surroundings of Antibes between Nice and Cannes on the Côte d’Azur – beaches and museums (for Napoleon, Picasso and Absinthe amongst others). It is also home to an international Jazz Festival (Jazz à Juan) in July 12- 21 July 2019

There is also the Port Vauban, built by France’s greatest military architect. The old port was the heart of the ancient Greek city of Antipolis. It is now the largest yachting harbour in Europe, with more than 2,000 moorings, and can accommodate craft of more than 100 metres. This old port was the heart of the ancient Greek city of Antipolis and has a long and colourful history which includes Ligurians, Romans and Crusaders en route to the Holy Land. Today, it is the largest marina in Europe, serving both local fishing boats and luxury yachts.
