Classic yacht racing in St. Tropez + a week on a Clipper




Tall ship specialist Star Clippers is offering the opportunity to follow the action and mingle with the crews of the Voiles de St Tropez this September, one of the world’s most glamorous classic yacht regattas, from the comfort of their own stunning square rigger, the 170-passenger Star Flyer.

Les Voiles de St Tropez is one of the principal events in the classic yachting race calendar, bringing together magnificent racing boats with world-class crews from all over the world. The regatta runs this year from September 27 to October 5 and Star Flyer will be in the bay of St Tropez on October 2 and 3, perfectly situated for guests to view the racing and admire the yachts from the heart of the action.

Star Clippers’ Voiles de St Tropez sailing departs Monte Carlo on September 27, calling at some of the Mediterranean’s finest yachting harbours: L’Ile Rousse and Bastia in Corsica; Portoferraio in Elba; Rapallo (for Portofino) in Italy; and St Tropez for the racing (pictured left). From £1,470 per person, including full board on the ship and port taxes. Flights are extra.
