Star Clippers in St Tropez for Classic Yacht Regatta

Tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers has announced a special three-night mini-cruise departing September 28 that includes viewing the spectacular yacht regatta, Les Voiles de St Tropez, from the decks of the square rigger, Star Flyer.

Star Flyer of Star Clippers Les Voiles de St Tropez is one of the principal events in the classic yachting race calendar, bringing together magnificent racing boats with world-class crews from all over the world.

The regatta runs this year from September 25 to October 3 and Star Flyer will be in the bay of St Tropez on October 1, perfectly situated for guests to view the racing and admire the yachts from the heart of the action.

The town, too, takes on the air of a festival for the duration of the regatta, with unrivalled opportunities for boat-spotting and people-watching.

Star Clippers has combined the three-night sailing with a night at the boutique, four-star Columbus Hotel in Monte Carlo, departing September 28. The package, from £899 per person, includes scheduled flights from London to Nice, or rail travel by Eurostar; helicopter transfer to Monaco (for flight passengers) or private car (for rail passengers); one night’s bed and breakfast at the Columbus Hotel; three nights’ full board accommodation on Star Flyer; and port taxes.

The ship sails from Monte Carlo on September 29, calling at L’Ile Rousse in Corsica and St Tropez (a morning on the beach and the afternoon watching the racing in the bay), returning to Cannes on October 2.
