Sailing in Saint-Tropez
Originally a fishing village, Saint Tropez has been a seaside resort beloved by international jet-setters and celebrities since the 1950s, primarily thanks to its unique South of France charm and atmosphere.
For about the last fifteen years, it has also been an essential spot for the sailing world. Prestigious competitions like the Giraglia Rolex Cup, one of the biggest yacht races in the Mediterranean, and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez, which combines the latest sailboats with ones over a hundred years old, are organized with style by the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez. Founded in 1962 but truly reinvigorated by its current president, the society, which includes approximately 500 members, recently moved to a brand-new club house, completely financed by the city and elegantly decorated with USM furniture.
