About the event

End of the 19th Porquerolle's Classic!

A very light breeze accompanied the fleet of classic yachts in front of Porquerolles for this final day of the 19th edition of Porquerolle's Classic. With 5 small knots of wind at the start and numerous windless bubbles on the course, the race committee launched the first start around 11:30 a.m. for the shortest course planned on the program.

A unique spectacle to admire slow-motion maneuvers, or even acrobatic teammates...

With 3 races validated, the winners of this 19th edition of the Porquerolle's Classic are in the three classes Windhover (Marconi Era), Sagittarius (Marconi Classic) and Olympian (Auric Era).

See you in 2023 from June 8 to 11 for the 20th edition.

Two courses in the Bay of Hyères of 15.7 and 10 miles and the Tour de Porquerolles, this 19th edition of the Porquerolle's Classic kept all its promises with great conviviality on land and the quality of the courses offered by the organization at sea .

Sébastien Le Berre, President of the Porquerolles Yacht Club: “It’s a very nice edition, I’m really happy. I congratulate and thank the team of volunteers from the Porquerolles Yacht Club who did an incredible job and without whom we could not organize this great event.”
