Some gorgeous shots of this beauty parade of classic yachts


It’s Les Voiles de St Tropez, the annual beauty parade of classic yachts and one of the most spectacular treats in all of yachting.

Above, the Fife 15 Metre Mariska leads from Moonbeam of Fife. This and the photos below are of some of the assembled lovelies in the warm autumn sun, taken by the brilliant Gilles Martin-Raget 

Above: another classic Fife, Moonbeam IV, with the 162ft Herreshoff schooner Eleonora to windward

Above: a fair spread of canvas on Moonbeam, and plenty of crew to handle it

Above: almost a parade of sail, with the 15 Metre Fife Tuiga bringing up the rear
