“With generous loans and help from our lenders and friends Prada, the BMW Group, Bill Lynn and the Herreshoff Marine Museum/ America´s Cup Hall of Fame, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, Emirates Team New Zealand, Challenger of Record ( COR ) 36, Elizabeth Meyer, Bruno Troublé, Jacques Taglang, Eric Hall, Arthur Lee, Sir Michael Fay, John Lammerts van Bueren, Thorsten Conradi, Russel Green, Larry Keating, Bill Koch, Henk Buitenhuis and many others, the Robbe & Berking Yachting Heritage Centre is able to present exhibits, images and films many of which have never been accessible to the public before,” announced its curator Oliver Berking.

Founded in 1986 by Pier Franco Gavagnin, director of Portosole Sanremo, Imperia’s Vele d’Epoca have become an important appointment for the classic regattas in the Mediterranean. At the first gathering about 30 boats participated, an important number that marked the first step for the exponential growth of the event.
In 2006 Officine Panerai became the Title Sponsor and decides to include the Vintage Sails in the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. Thanks to this, the Imperia stage can count on the presence of extraordinary boats and on a large audience that comes to admire the Great Queens of sail.

The Henry Euler Memorial Trust (THEMT) will host its first international Symposium and exhibition this September 5th and 6th on Alderney. As the northernmost of the British Channel Islands, and the closest to France, the island has played an important strategic role in the history of Anglo-French relations.
To be held in the Island Hall in Royal Connaught Square, Alderney, the Symposium will highlight and celebrate Alderney’s rich maritime heritage and history, with a particular focus on Anglo-French relations from the end of the 17th century to the end of the First World War.
There will be a full programme of lectures, presentations by leading British and French historians. The Islands have shaped national strategies in war and peace for two hundred years, while maritime strategy has shaped the Islands in equal measure, leaving indelible marks in the form of forts, harbours and gun positions. Contributions to the Symposium, which will cover a range of topics, from corsairs and privateering to trade war, aim to complement existing scholarship, which has tended to treat the Channel Islands as a place apart.
Jurat Colin Partridge OBE, a trustee of THEMT, says: “It is important to draw attention to Alderney’s maritime heritage as it touches on every facet of island life – it is not just about geopolitics, navies and ships. It offers a great medium through which to attract the interest of our nearest neighbours on both sides of the Channel.”
THEMT are working with King’s College London, L’institut de Recherches Historiques du Septentrion (Lille) and La Service Historique de la Defence (Paris), and with the support of Le Pole Espaces Maritimes (Caen) and Le GIS d’Histoire & Science de la Mer.
More information and tickets to the Symposium are available: HERE
Background on the trust
The Henry Euler Memorial Trust’s objectives are to ensure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of the maritime heritage of Alderney, including features of historical and archaeological interest. They aim to inform, develop and maintain the interest in the maritime heritage of Alderney among the inhabitants of Alderney and the wider world.
The trust was launched in 2006 by Mary Euler, in her husband’s memory. Henry Euler served as a Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve Torpedo Officer in the fleet aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious from the date of her commission and trials in 1939, until March 1941. He subsequently served on the light cruiser HMS Dido, followed by a short period at the Belfast Trawler Base before being reappointed to HMS Vernon for the duration of the Second World War. As a married couple, and both keen sailors, Henry and Mary became regular visitors to Alderney in their 7-ton yacht Bonnyrigg II. They later became members of the Royal Thames Yacht Club.
Henry Euler died in 1971, after which Mary retained a great enthusiasm for all things naval and nautical in connection with Alderney, taking great pride in the annual presentation of the Henry Euler Cup at the Alderney Sailing Club, and later setting up The Henry Euler Memorial Trust. Mary died in 2006. She has made a lasting contribution to the understanding and interpretation of Alderney’s maritime heritage.

Launched in 1994, this biennial event stands out in that it brings together in one harbour the full spectrum of boats of yesteryear, from the small recreational craft to the luxury units: classic sailing yachts, 12’ Dinghies, motorboats, and period motor-yachts. Between tradition and the art de vivre la mer lifestyle, this is a week for strolling along the southern quay of the YCM Marina to admire these dames from another era, all restored to their youthful prime by their owners.

The Régates Royales – Trophée
The Régates Royales – Trophée Panerai enlivens the Bay of Cannes, in late September like no other sailing event. Classics, including the Big Class, Spirit of Tradition, Metre class boats, Dragons and Tofinou one-designs will gather in a unique display of beauty, elegance and competition.
The event is run by the Yacht Club de Cannes (France) founded in 1860 and has been running for 40 years
The bay of Cannes will be, once again the place to be for sailors and fans. As the autumn is just about started, the fleet criss-crossing the bay will unite beauty, heritage and close racing. A unique line-up gathering some of the most famous yachts from last century, from the tiny Arcadia to the majestic Cambria. No less than 150 classic and traditional yachts will fight for victory on a race area close to the stunning Lérins Islands, bringing back memories from the yachting “golden age”.
The Dragons celebrate their participation to the Régates Royales de Cannes
Since their comeback to Cannes in 1987, the Dragons haven’t stopped attracting and charming fans of one-design sail racing. Some fifty crews come from ten different countries, to meet in the Cote d’Azur. The Régates Royales will pull together the best Dragon sailors for four days of very close racing.
The pop up village
Set on the Quai Laubeuf the Régates Royales –Trophée Panerai village will animate every day before and after racing time with several attractions, namely at night.

This is the jaw-dropper -
This is the jaw-dropper – many of the world’s finest restored classic yachts tied stern to in the historic stone harbour of St Tropez, and racing in the gulf during the day make for a truly awesome sight.
The event started with a race between a modern and a classic yacht at the end of September in 1981 and grew into a classic boating jamboree called The Nioulargue – named after an offshore reef buoy marker for the racing. In 1999 it became Les Voiles and it celebrates 20 years in 2019.
It’s one of those events that should be on every classic sailor’s bucket list – even if it’s just to watch the 300 or so boats (of all types and size) out racing from the harbour mole and then to have a pint in the Irish bar.
Accommodation can be surprisingly good value – at this end of the season and the conviviality of the crews is infectious. Nearest airport is Nice.
