Nautical events

Every summer, a number of special nautical events bring the coasts of the island to life: Les Voiles de Noirmoutier, the Regatta du Bois de la Chaise and the Beneteau Cup, are the best known and most popular. Tall ships, working boats or prestige ships sail alongside the latest models, straight from the shipyards of the Vendée — all find themselves together for a few days on the beautiful waterways of the Island.
