Et Dieu créa… Brigitte Bardot


Exhibition of Brigitte Bardot in Saint-Tropez at Le Musée de la Gendarmerie

Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot born 28 September 1934 is a French actress, singer and fashion model, who later became an animal rights activist. She was one of the best known sex symbols of the 1950s and 1960s and was widely referred to by her initials, B.B.

Bardot was an aspiring ballerina in her early life. She started her acting career in 1952. After appearing in 16 routine comedy films that had limited international release, she became world-famous in 1957 after starring in the controversial film And God Created Woman. Bardot caught the attention of French intellectuals. She was the subject of Simone de Beauvoir's 1959 essay, The Lolita Syndrome, which described Bardot as a "locomotive of women's history" and built upon existentialist themes to declare her the first and most liberated woman of post-war France. She later starred in Jean-Luc Godard's 1963 film Le Mépris. For her role in Louis Malle's 1965 film Viva Maria! Bardot was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actress. From 1969 to 1978, Bardot was the official face of Marianne (who had previously been anonymous) to represent the liberty of France.

Les voiles de Saint-Tropez

30th of September to the 8th of October 2017 - Sailing Cup

The story : 1981 Patrice de Colmont gives us the history (see “How it all began!”) but there’s also the team that welcomes you each year in the Press Room. They have summarized Patrice’s history of “Les Voiles” for you in a few paragraphs reproduced below: There are nights when we have great ideas. It all started on the 29 th September 1981 where a challenge with little sporting interest, but to defend the honour of sail, is launched between Pride, the Swan 44 of American Dick Jason, and the 12 metre Ikra, skippered by Jean Lorrain.

The challenge could not be simpler: a start at the foot of the village of Saint-Tropez at the Tour du Portalet, round the mark of the the Nioulargo (deep nest “in Provençal) and arrival at the restaurant, “Club 55”, located on the beach of Pampelonne. Anecdotally, Ikra prevailed ahead of Pride and historically gave rise to this challenge the “Club 55 Cup”, thanks to the spontaneity and enthusiasm of Patrice de Colmont. .  And so, from this regatta is born a unique event, a gathering which allows ordinary racing boats to race with prestigious Maxi yachts and sophisticated prototypes and with classic yachts with histories as long as windless days.

Les “Dragon” (Regatta)

From the 15th to the 20th of October 2017

After the very successful 75th anniversary of the Dragons in 2004 which gathered more than 260 boats in Saint-Tropez, the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez and  the Association Française de la Série Internationale des Dragon (France-Dragon)  decided to repeat this October event.  In 2009, the IDA (International Dragon Association) and France-Dragon asked the SNST to organise the European Dragon Championships in Saint-Tropez, a wonderful  competition with more than 100 entrants.

In 2017, Saint-Tropez hosts the Gold Cup, a sort of world championships raced  annually in Europe and initiated in 1937 by the Clyde Yacht Club in order to bring  together as many competitors of different nationalities as possible apart from the  Olympics (The Dragon was an Olympic Class from 1948 to 1972). After Palma, it  will be the second Gold Cup to take place in the Mediterranean, a pride for the SNST  which is thus rewarded for the quality of its organisation.
