In summer, Saint-Tropez is full of fashionable girls, while in autumn, it's full of men in polo shirts and boat shoes. It means it's time for the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez. This regatta was founded a few years ago in place of the internationally renowned Nioularge that was stopped because of a terrible accident. After a couple of years of silence, the locals decided that they miss the spectacle of the beautiful wooden classics in the bay of Saint-Tropez, and they ​founded a new regatta. Now the wind-blown hair, the excitement on the faces of the participants, the wind in the sails, and the azure waters of the Mediterranean sea are back. This annual event gathers​ thousands of people wanting to see the race, especially as the boats return to the bay. Once again it's crowded in Saint-Tropez in October again.
