Discover the Cannes Royal Regatta
Each year in September, the Port of Cannes comes alive with a fleet of dragons, pontoons, old rigs, and classic yachts at the Cannes Royal Regatta. The spectacle takes place over the three days that separate the Cannes Yachting Festival and the gathering of Royal Regattas in Cannes for one of the most breathtaking regattas in the world. Nearly 150 boats participate each year, making the event a must-attend for any boating aficionado.
While the main event takes place on the water, the entire Port of Cannes is filled with activities for you to enjoy over the course of three days. Attend the opening ceremony and subsequent award distributions, along with crew parades to experience the regatta's official start and finish. In between, make your way through the various games, concerts, and parties while checking out the exhibition where vendors present locally made ware such as jewelry, handicrafts, and clothing.
