Les Voiles de Antibes 2023

May 31st, 2023 - June 4th, 2023

Location:  Antibes, France

Since its debut year in 1996, Les Voiles d’Antibes has been the first major European event of the classic yachting season for many sailing enthusiasts, and the opening event of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge for many years. Every year, in early June, Port Vauban - Europe’s largest marina - and the coastal waters between the bay of Antibes and Juan-les-Pins, host a fleet of legendary boats, which challenge each other over the five days of regatta and match-races that spark competition between the crews. 
Famous for the beauty of its scenery and wealth of culture, it offers owners and crews an atmosphere of great cheer during the Antibes regattas, as one of the liveliest regatta resorts on the circuit. Concerts, exhibitions, parades and other surprises animate life on land, yet leaving the event’s leading role to the “ladies of the sea”.


Host Club: Les Voiles d’Antibes (Antibes, France)

Angetario Sailing Week

June 14th, 2023 - June 18th, 2023

Location:  San Stefano ( Italy, Mediterranean Sea)


In the second half of June, when winds blow more strongly, ideal conditions are created for racing around the ancient port of Santo Stefano, on the western side of Mount Argentario. That is precisely when the Argentario Sailing Week is held, the regatta reserved for classic and vintage yachts, which each year hosts watercraft from all over the Mediterranean to partake in thrilling challenges celebrating beauty and love of the sea.

Began in 1992 under the name Vele d’Argento and rechristened Argentario Sailing Week in 1999, the Porto Santo Stefano fixture is now one of the great classics of the vintage sailing season. Owners, crews and fans gather in Porto Vecchio, known also as “La Pilarella”, from the name of one of the districts into which the charming seaside village that hosts the event is traditionally divided.

Cannes Regates Royal

September 24th, 2023 - September 30th, 2023

Location: Cannes  (France)

Included in the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge calendar since 2005 as the closing leg of the season, the Régates Royales in Cannes represent one of the most prestigious fixtures in the entire international regatta season reserved for classic and vintage yachts. The large number and variety of boats present as well as its long history make this event an extraordinary festival devoted to the sea and its leading ladies. 

The name Régates Royales, dating back to 1929, recalls the royalty who took part in the regattas with their boats right from the very first years of the event. Cannes, however, had already acted as host to the first regatta – for tall ships – organised by the then Société de Régates de Cannes in 1863.

Race type: Race Week
