Not many yachts can claim to have ‘co-founded’ an iconic annual international racing spectacle. But in 1981 when the American-owned Swan 44 Pride challenged the 12 Metre Ikra to a match race in St Tropez that is exactly what happened… first with the wonderful Nioulargue, and later with its multi-faceted offspring, Les Voiles de St Tropez. More recently the Pride story acquired yet another chapter to add to the already 50-year tale

Pride: a journey through time, tradition and technology
As described in the Finest Vintage of All in Seahorse 526 and 527, the Nioulargue (and now Les Voiles de St Tropez) is among Europe’s most historic and fun regattas, attracting the crème de la crème of the sailing world for one final summer regatta. In those recent features Seahorse explored the rich history and founding of the Nioulargue, a narrative steeped in the camaraderie, challenge and spirit that defines the essence of regatta sailing.
