Cannes Yachting Festival 2020 – CANCELLED

Date of event: September 8-13, 2020

Locale: Cannes, French Riveria

Statement from Organisers (August 2020):

Despite a very rigorous sanitary plan with a series of additional health and safety measures, presented by the Yachting Festival and deemed “satisfactory” during a meeting held on 17 August at the sub-prefecture of Grasse in the presence of the prefectural authorities, the city of Cannes and the Regional Health Authority (ARS), the prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes, the only official empowered to rule ultimately, decided not to grant the dispensation that would have allowed the Yachting Festival to go ahead.

It is with our greatest regret and with some misunderstanding that we are therefore forced to announce the cancellation of the Yachting Festival 2020.

Since 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.

As the first show in the boating season, the Cannes Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. The  leaders in the world’s  pleasure yachting industry come here to launch the show season by showcasing their new worldwide models. The 2020 show will be quite a bit smaller than previous shows given the current global situation.

Experience the pinnacle of luxury lifestyle, entertainment, and cuisine, set against the glittering beauty of the French Riveria.
