Cannes Yachting Festival
September 8 - September 13
Since 1977, Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.
As the first show in the boating season, the Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. The major players in pleasure yachting come here to launch the show season by showcasing their new worldwide models.
Each year, the Yachting Festival offers visitors and exhibitors a choice setting: in the bay of Cannes, just a stone’s throw from the old town and next to the Palais des Festivals, the Show stretches out over two harbours, Canto and Vieux Port. Vieux Port, one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera, each year welcomes prestigious exhibits presented by the world’s largest shipyards.
On the occasion of the 42nd edition and the opening of the Port Canto Sailing Area, which will host 120 new sailing boats, monohulls and multihulls from 10 metres and upwards, and 80 exhibitors, the Yachting Festival will showcase sailing in all its diversity and wealth.
For six days, from 10 to 15 September, VIPs from the world of sailing will crowd the docks of the Yachting Festival and sailing events will be held every day for the delight of enthusiasts!
