La Calanques Classique sailing race

For the 8th consecutive year, historical and traditional sailboats come to the Old Port of La Ciotat to put on a majestic show down the calanques of Marseille.

The settings for this unique sailing event are the gorgeous calanques of Marseille, and the stars are the classic and traditional wooden yachts of southern France. The event aims to further the development of traditional yachting in the Mediterranean in general, and, in particular, the 20 boats owned by members of the ‘Société Nautique de Marseille', the event organiser. It also seeks to draw the public's attention to the constant need to protect these spectacular creeks.
