The first racing event organised in the bay of La Napoule saw the likes of large yachts such as Léro, Olga, Jeannette and Touriste rally with smaller sailing yachts as well as several local fishermen's rowing boats The Société des Régates de Cannes and the Yacht Club de Cannes have been organising the Régates Royales for over eight years. The event is supported by the Cannes municipality that once again will be an essential backer for the event and by main sponsor Panerai. Regates Royales website
