1929 was the inaugural year of the famous traditional Régates Royales in Cannes. Since then the event has been a meeting venue for the world´s top sailors and many of the most beautiful yachts ever built. Every year the culmination is the “Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge”, pure eye candy for sailors and spectators alike. But Régates Royales is also one of the most important Dragon Class races on the calendar, attracting fleets of 50 and more boats and the world´s best, lead by the Transbunker team, setting the standard in the class.
Fabulously renovated classic yachts and a fleet of old but meticulously maintained 12- Meter America´s Cuppers will set sails off Cannes.
“You hardly ever find functional clothing that is good looking but sporty and fashionable at the same time. So this combination does really well representing the value and spirit of the Régates Royales.“ Monsieur Ortelli, Yacht Club de Cannes.
Cutting edge design meets tradition
The specially designed Régates Royales Collection is hugely successful and is promoting the classic regatta well beyond the Cote dÁzur. The Régates Royales Collection can be found in good sailing shops, boutiques and airports throughout Europe and the Middle East.
The new 2012 Régates Royales Collection comprises jackets for women and men, vests, cotton and linen shirts for women and men, polos, swimshorts, t-shirts, bags and accessories.
All of them featuring maritime materials, the colours of the Yacht Club the Cannes and attention to detail that is unrivalled. Of course every garment shows the logo of Régates Royales which is either elaborately embroidered on the back or colourfully printed on the garment.
