40th Festival Armen

The Festival Armen, which was created in 1978, is an event recognised and prized with more than 70 boats competing.
The name ARMEN is a contraction of Art Mer ( Sea) and Neige ( snow) and of course making reference to the light of the same name.
This event quickly generated much enthusiasm so that it is now endowed with a new sailing and skiing competition named after Andre Herman.



An art exhibition in St Tropez during the week of the event with the contribution of a piece of art made by one of the crew on a predetermined theme.
The first weekend of the regatta, depending on weather conditions, consists of a race from St Tropez to Cavalaire with a return race the following day
A ski contest takes place at Isola 2000 on the Friday
The second weekend of racing is held in the Gulf of St Tropez
