The origin was a spontaneous race between a classic and a modern yacht in 1981. The regatt before Saint-Tropez became famous as "LNioulargue", not least because of the atmosphere that was created during the event in the formerly tranquil fishing village and now the meeting point of the jet Sets prevails.
The oldest of the great classic get-togethers on the Mediterranean - which has brought together old and modern yachts from the start - has retained its flair of amateur coexistence among like-minded people.
