Danse des Classiques

Thursday 13th July – 15:30 to 17:00 French local time.

“It is really not a race, but the opportunity for classic yachts to sail
round three buoys, to be admired, like dancing girls in a ballroom.”

Very successful in 2015, this is an event in which boats will be assessed  by a panel of judges who will be looking for various creative elements:

  • Best creatively dressed crew
  • Best creatively presented boat (decoration, handling, sail configuration)
  • Best music and dance performed by crew.

There will, of course, be prizes.

For people not taking part aboard a yacht there is  special Bréhat Vedette (250 passengers) which will depart from The Arcouest at 15:00 and return at 17:30. Price 10 €. A commentator will be on board to describe each boat, its characteristics, its history. Tickets can be purchased in Paimpol: at the Office de Tourisme or the Vedettes boutique (Place de la République).
