Les Voiles de St Tropez. Les Voiles - literally 'The Sails' - takes place from April to October across the French Riviera. Each race brings together some of the most beautiful traditional wooden yachts from the 1930's America's cup, alongside the most extraordinary modern sailing boats for week-long regattas in beautiful ports such as Antibes and Saint-Tropez. This year's St Tropez sailing regatta experienced the most inclement weather the region has experienced since records began. On some days it prevented any racing but on others it resulting in challenging exciting sailing - and photography!
