race to victory

Cannes sets sail for another year of thrilling races and nautical elegance.

The Régates Royales Cannes has been the annual meeting point for the most successful sailors worldwide since 1929. The event brings together some of the world’s most skilled sailors and spectacular sailing vessels. The beautiful classic boats that take part in the “Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge” during the Régates Royales Cannes offer a stunning view, not only for the sailors but also for the audience.


The regatta features one of the most important Dragon races of the year, as well as a variety of races for classic sailing yachts, motorboats, and schooners. Dragon sailing boats are narrow, fast keelboats used for racing and leisure sailing, crewed by three or four sailors. In addition to the sailing competitions, there are also a variety of social events, parties, and boat parades, making it a true highlight of every yachting calendar.


The Régates Royales Cannes is not just a sailing competition but also a celebration of the rich history and culture of sailing, attracting sailing enthusiasts from all over the world, making it a truly international festivity of the sport of sailing. It’s a celebration of the history and tradition of sailing where we honor the greatest yacht designers of their time, such as William Fife III, Johan Anker, Charles Ernest Nicholson, and Henry Rasmussen, who have left a lasting legacy in the yachting world.

classic sailing yacht


In 1926, William Fife III launched the 24.7m cutter Hallowe’en. According to William Fife III, designer of a number of classic yachts still racing today, “Hallowe’en is the perfect gentleman’s yacht. She is a jewel”.
When gaff-rigged racers dominated various regattas, he chose to rig the yacht as a low-aspect Bermudan cutter. Her mast and boom heights continued to change over the years, and eventually, she was transformed into a yawl.


Under new owner Alfred Larsen, a Norwegian industrialist, she returned to the Atlantic after racing in the Mediterranean for several years. The yacht became the official yacht of the Royal Norwegian Racing Club and was helmed by Prince Olaf numerous times. Following her transatlantic journey in 1938, she vanished from radar screens. She was further renamed Cotton Blosson IV by Walter Wheeler and continued her history of ocean racing before eventually being donated to the Classic Boat Museum in New Port, Rhode Island, for a much-needed refit.As a result of funds drying up in New Port, Hallowe’en was in need of a new owner and returned to the Mediterranean when Elizabeth Meyer (owner of J-Class Endeavour) assisted in finding a buyer.


From 1988 to 1991, Hallowe’en was carefully restored to her original lines at the Classic Boat Works in Newport, Rhode Island. All sawn English Oak frames were carefully repaired or replaced, and the planking was secured with bronze fasteners from the museum. Having undergone some major changes in France in 1994, she underwent another transformation in 1998, perhaps looking better now than ever. After several refits (and owners), she is now available for charter in the Mediterranean, where she races competitively in the classic regatta circuit spanning France, Corsica, Spain, and Italy. The latest refit was performed in 2009 by Fairlie Restorations on the Hamble river, UK.

Classic Charme

Hallowe’en is undoubtedly one of the most stunning yachts on the regatta scene. This fast and excellent Fife-built cruiser/racer is highly recommended for charter by anyone seeking a vintage wooden sailing yacht of the highest quality. In addition to being one of the most beautiful Fifes ever built, she is able to make fast passages across the oceans and still wins classic regattas. With her original mahogany interior, Hallowe’en is one of the finest vintage racing yachts in the Mediterranean.
