The races of Wednesday, September 25 are canceled! The wind can not navigate safely.

A good start for the 41st Royal Regatta! Crews enjoyed two beautiful sunny days with a wind of 15 knots Monday and Tuesday.


However, today, Wednesday, September 25th, the Traditions, Metrics and Dragons Racing Committees discussed at length the possibility of launching the races but finally canceled the day of racing because a wind speeding up to 28 knots made navigation difficult and the safety of the crews difficult.

 

Currently, crews compete on land with tug of war!

It's a good start for the 41st Royal Regatta!

It's a good start for the 41st Royal Regatta. This Monday, September 23, 2019, the fleet of Dragons has regrouped on the line. Olivier De Turckheim, President of the Race Committee announces the podium of the first race. The weather conditions are perfect. The West sector wind, 12 knots is the joy of the competitors.

The second run was more sustained with a southwest wind and 26 knots. The wind was weakening at the end of the race and the competitors had just enough time to cross the finish line and return to the harbor before the wind no longer carried the spinnackers.

 

Yesterday Tuesday, September 24, the conditions were softer but regular. All the sails were out for a magnificent spectacle for the eyes.

  • A story about boats...

    It's not by chance that, since 1859, the world's yachting elite has chosen Cannes as its preferred race course.

    In fact, there are a few places that enjoy such a pleasant environment and ideal conditions for sailing. True, sometimes wind plays hide-and-seek on the bay but that looks like part of its charm because for over a century the world's most beautiful yachts compete on this magnificent race course where the Lérins Islands, the Esterel and Mercantour massifs make for a unique background!

    For over 70 days a year, the bay of Cannes gathers dozens of racing boats. Yet it is the Règates Royales that, represent the peak of the season with some 150 stunning yachts – from 10 to 50 metres long- each and every end of September choose to come sailing here.

Five days of racing under the sign of elegance

The world-famous Croisette once more going to be under the spotlight - from September 22 to 29- when the 39th edition of the Régates Royales – Trophée Panerai will gather over fifty Dragons and an armada of over eighty classic yachts, with several centenarians too.

 

One full week of racing off the beautiful Lérins islands  for a fleet made up of eight different categories, according to the boats’ size, rig and age. The line-up is exceptional with some of the world’s biggest and most famous classic yachts will sail in the bay: Elena of London (55 metres, by Nathanaël Herreshoff built in 2009), Cambria (40 metres, by William Fife built in 1928), Sunshine (38 metres, by William Fife Junior built in 2003), Aschanti IV (34,67 metres, by Henry Gruber built in 1954),  Moonbeam of Fife (30 metres, by William Fife built in 1903) and Moonbeam IV (35 metres, by William Fife built in 1914) or the15 M Mariska (27,00 metres, by William Fife built in 1908)…


In 2016 Cannes will celebrate the 39th edition of the renewed Régates Royales, one of the oldest inshore races in the Mediterranean, the debut event being held in 1929 to honour King Christian X of Denmark. The hosting Yacht Club de Cannes is also one of the most venerable in France, as it was founded in the spring of 1859 when Messieurs Béchard, Tripet-Skrypitzone, de Colquhoum and Bucquet created the Société des Régates and organised the first race in the Napoule Bay for yachts like Léro, Olga, Jeannette and Touriste but open also to small sailing and rowing boats owned by local sailors and fishermen.
For the past 12 years, the Régates Royales de Cannes marks the last rendezvous for the Trophée Panerai circuit, considered as a true classic yachts' world championship.

    Cannes is a unique and magic place, a real staging scene and has several easily accessible viewpoints from where the yachts can be watched, as they race in both bays.

    The Régates Royales Race Village at the Vieux Port

    The Village and the docks are open to the public and offer many free activities.

    The free visit at the dock

    The boats can be visited when they are moored at the quai, with a limit number of guests each. Visits can be booked at the Régates Royales Race Village at the stand of the Yacht Club de Cannes.

    Le Suquet and the square of the Musée de la Castre

    A high viewpoint of the race area around the islands and on the bays.

    The Yacht Club de Cannes

    You can watch the racing yachts from the Yacht Club’s terrace in the port Palm Beach.

    Boulevard du Midi & Digue of the parking Laubeuf

    The beaches represent a unique observation point, a unique parade three-kilometres long.

    The Iles de Lérins

    The islands of St Honorat and Sainte Marguerite can be reached by ferry and guarantee a true show of the boats sailing round them with the Esterel as a magnificent backdrop while savouring a tasty lunch.

  • Weather forecast

    It's a sunny, bright morning in Cannes. The race village is crowded with sailors and fans but the wind is very light so the race committee decided to hoist the postponement flag for some time. The weather forecast is for a breeze getting stronger with the passing hours. In the early afternoon it should become a good southerly of a dozen knots: ideal conditions for the Dragons and the 5.5 Metres to end their series in style with two or three races in the gulf Juan. This southerly breeze should accompany the Classics on the coastal course set off Cannes and the Lérins islands, thanks to the high pressure system over Switzerland and extending to the Côte d’Azur.
