Empowering waves

Les Dames de Saint-Tropez: A celebration of women's mastery at sea

Nestled in the French Riviera’s radiant embrace, Saint-Tropez awaits a spectacular gathering’s arrival. From 23. – 29. April 2024, the 11th edition of Les Dames de Saint-Tropez will unfold, a regatta that has become a beacon of female empowerment and excellence in the world of sailing. In this idyllic setting, where the Mediterranean kisses the sun-drenched shores, we are not just hosting a sailing event; we are celebrating a revolution in the seas.

 

This year’s event is especially significant, following the remarkable milestone reached in 2023, when almost every second yacht boasted an all-female crew, a powerful testament to the rising tide of women in sailing. Limited to just 20 yachts and crews, including iconic classic boats like Hallowe’en or Mariska, both built by the famous William Fife III, Les Dames de Saint-Tropez is an exclusive stage where the prowess and elegance of women sailors are not just showcased but revered.

 

Each day of our almost week-long program is an ode to these extraordinary women. Their stories are not just about navigating the waters but charting a new course in a traditionally male-dominated realm. The regatta is a vibrant tapestry of competition, camaraderie, and celebration, woven together by the skilled hands of women who have taken the helm with confidence and grace.

 

As we welcome you to Les Dames de Saint-Tropez 2024, we invite you to be part of a journey that transcends the boundaries of sport. Here, in the heart of Saint-Tropez, we celebrate not just the victories on the water but the triumphs of women who are redefining the world of sailing. Join us for a week of passion, empowerment, and unforgettable memories, where every wave tells a story of courage, every gust of wind sings of freedom, and every sailor is a beacon of inspiration. Welcome to a showcase of extraordinary talent and the spirit of sisterhood. Welcome to Les Dames de Saint-Tropez.

Mariska

The Legacy of Mariska
Mariska, a masterpiece of nautical engineering and design, is a living testament to the golden age of yachting. Built in 1908 by the renowned Scottish boatbuilder William Fife III, Mariska is a classic 15-meter racing yacht, a category known for its elegance and speed. Crafted from the finest materials of its time, the yacht embodies a rich history, having graced the seas for over a century. Its sleek lines and gleaming wooden deck hark back to an era where craftsmanship and aesthetic beauty were paramount. Mariska’s journey through the years is a story of resilience and preservation, marked by careful restorations that have kept the yacht not only seaworthy but also competitive in classic yacht regattas.

 

A Design that Transcends Time
The design of Mariska is a blend of form and function that has stood the test of time. Her hull, constructed from high-quality woods, showcases Fife’s attention to detail and his understanding of the elements that make a yacht both fast and beautiful. The yacht’s overhanging stern and bow, a signature of the 15-meter class, give it an unmistakable silhouette that is both aggressive and graceful. Below deck, Mariska maintains an air of classic charm, with period fixtures and a layout that respects her original design. Modern safety and navigation equipment have been seamlessly integrated to ensure that Mariska remains competitive and safe without compromising her historical integrity.

 

Mariska in the Modern Era
Today, Mariska is not just a relic of the past but a vibrant participant in the classic sailing circuit. She can be chartered with Noblesse Yachts to compete in some of the most prestigious regattas, where she continues to turn heads and capture hearts. Being aboard Mariska is like stepping back in time, as she cuts through the waves with the same agility and speed that made her a marvel over a century ago. Her presence at events is a celebration of maritime heritage, inspiring awe and admiration from both sailing enthusiasts and the general public. Mariska serves as a floating museum, an educational tool, and a symbol of the enduring allure of classic yachts.

Elegant Legacy

Mariska, a 1908 masterpiece by William Fife III, excels in classic regattas due to her timeless design and competitive edge. Her historic charm, coupled with modern updates, ensures both authenticity and top performance.
Mariska is the perfect choice for regattas, captivating participants and spectators alike with her timeless design and competitive spirit.

Our Curated Studios and Apartments Near Saint-Tropez's Harbour

The limited number of hotels near Saint-Tropez’s harbour is due to several factors: strict historic preservation regulations, space constraints in the compact harbour area, high real estate values, environmental regulations protecting the coastline, and inadequate infrastructure to support large hotel developments. Therefore, we opt for select studios and apartments, with some situated right near the harbour, offering several benefits.

 

1. Proximity to the Event: Being near the port means you are at the heart of the regatta activities. You can easily walk to the port; this proximity allows you to immerse yourself fully in the event without the hassle of transportation.

2. Flexibility and Freedom: An apartment offers more flexibility than a hotel. You can set your own schedule and have a more personalized space. This is especially beneficial for longer stays or for those with specific dietary or living preferences.

3. Cost-Effectiveness: Renting an apartment can be more cost-effective, especially for groups or families. Instead of booking multiple hotel rooms, an apartment can accommodate more people, often at a lower total cost.

4. Authentic Experience: Staying in an apartment allows you to experience Saint-Tropez like a local. You can shop at local markets, enjoy neighbourhood restaurants, and engage with residents, offering a more authentic and enriching experience.

5. Quiet and Privacy: While the regatta is an exciting event, an apartment provides a private retreat away from the crowds, where you can relax and recharge in peace.

6. Scenic Views: Many apartments near the port offer scenic views of the sea and the regattas, providing a spectacular backdrop for your stay. This enhances the overall experience of the event.

 

We carefully chose based on customer reviews and our own experiences. If you need recommendations for various group sizes, feel free to ask. However, please be aware that availability and prices are subject to change.
