ON SHORE: A REDESIGNED FORMAT
“Taking into account the imposed security measures” specifies Pierre Roinson, President of the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez and organiser of the Voiles “And in order to not create the conditions for a regrouping in a single place – neither for the public, nor for the participants – we have set up a protocol. The Race Village will only host the partners’ stands and will be open to the public in groups of no more than 400 people, with wearing of masks being compulsory. The Race Village bar has been cancelled as well as the crew parade and boules competition. There will therefore be no activities specific to the organisation. The official clothing store, that of our partner North Sails, will be located at the entrance of the village with a direct access to the exterior. These provisions take us back to the Nioulargue years: boats, regattas and entertainments at the heart of the village.” This configuration, validated by President Pierre Roinson and Director General, Tony Oller, thus opens the possibility for businesses and establishments in Saint-Tropez, obviously affected by the consequences of the pandemic, to take in hand the entertainment and other activities which create the festive spirit linked to the event.
