For over 50 years, the elite of Olympic sailing have converged on Hyères - in the Toulon Provence Méditerranée area - in the spring, for one of the most hotly-anticipated events of the season.

Famous for its stretch of water and high-quality regatta organisation, the Semaine Olympique Française is one of the major events on the international Olympic sailing circuit. From 2022, after two years as a virtual event, Hyères will once again have the pleasure of welcoming the best sailors in the world in preparation for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

All 10 Olympic classes

For the first time in France, all 10 of the Olympic classes that will be contested at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, will be present in Hyères from April 23 to 30, 2022. The 10 Olympic classes: iQFOiL (men and women), Kite (men and women), ILCA (men), Laser Radial (women), 49er FX (men and women), Nacra 17 (mixed), 470 (mixed) will compete on the Mediterranean waters of Hyères, which are as technical as they are tactical, and renowned for the often strong winds.

"After two complicated years because of Covid, the Semaine Olympique Française is back on the calendar for 2022 - and for the next 3 years," Jean-Luc Denéchau, President of the Fédération Française de Voile (French Sailing Federation), said. "This is great news for this historic event. It will be the opportunity to see - for the first time in France, in the Toulon Provence Méditerranée area - all the new Olympic classes. The preparation time for the 2024 Olympic Games is going to be short and all the big events, such as the Semaine Olympique Française, will be crucial moments not to be missed. It promises to be compelling viewing and a great week of competition."

Jean-Pierre Giran, Mayor of the City of Hyères and Vice-President of the Toulon Provence Méditerranée region, said:

"The Semaine Olympique Française 2022 will host all the classes that will be participating in the 2024 Olympic Games, as has been the case for all of the Olympic sailing events that have been held on the waters of Hyères for more than 50 years.

"The City of Hyères, named as one of the "Terre de Jeux 2024" since 2019, is officially part of the new Olympiad, which will build-up until 2024. The renovation of the municipal Nautical Base, an "Olympic Preparation Centre" for sailing, will contribute to the welcome to international delegations and to the success of sailing events in our region.

It is also an opportunity to deepen our relationship with this world-class sailing event, whose reputation and excellence, are recognised by everyone, and in which we have a close collaboration with the French Sailing Federation and the Toulon Provence Méditerranée region."

See you from April 23 to 30, 2022 in Hyères, for the 53nd edition of the Semaine Olympique Française in Hyères - Toulon Provence Méditerranée!
