Régates Royales de Cannes: the 2019 edition confirmed

Régates Royales de Cannes

The 41st edition of the Régates Royales de Cannes is scheduled for next September, from 21 through 28. The city of Cannes and the Yacht Club de Cannes (the event organizer) will be welcoming once again the world’s best classic yachts in the stunning bay of the Côte d’Azur.

A few days ago Panerai, title sponsor of the Mediterranean circuit has announced its intention to cease its sponsorship. The Yacht Club de Cannes and its president Jean-Pierre Champion confirmed that the Régates Royales will take place regularly as it happened over the last 40 years, and will be welcoming all the crews on the Côte d’Azur, on the last week of September 2019.

“We want to thank Panerai for the 11 years’ support that has enabled us to make the  Régates Royales shine on the international scene. For the city of Cannes and the Yacht Club de Cannes, the Régates Royales are key and their long history is going to continue in 2019.” Said Jean-Pierre Champion, Yacht Club de Cannes’ president.

A new page in the history of the Régates Royales de Cannes will be written next year, with the usual passion and an exceptional line-up, with no less than 200 boats expected to be present.
