Organised in partnership with QATAR DUTY FREE, the tournament moves this year to the magnificent Royal Mougins Golf Club and its par 71 course dotted with olive trees and old stone-wall terracing in true Provençal style. The usual rich haul of prizes (longest drive, nearest the water and more) will add further spice to the play, but the accent is firmly on enjoyment and socialising.
Exercise your legs and your charitable instinct at the same time. A €15 donation, which TFWA gives to a local charity, enables you to walk, jog or run around a special course on Cannes’ magnificent seafront Croisette with its views of the bay. Entries from individuals are welcome, as are supporters and spectators.
Quickly becoming a Cannes tradition, the Regatta sees participants divided into crews with a yacht and skipper for each. All then head out into the Bay of Cannes for a morning’s competitive racing, each crew deciding its own strategy and tactics. A picnic lunch on board and post-race swim (weather permitting) round off the experience.
Expanded due to delegate demand, the yoga now features two open-air sessions of breathing and stretching exercises led by gurus. What better way than this gentle workout for mind and body to complete your physical and spiritual preparations for the busy week ahead? A special detox breakfast follows each session.
Back at its former venue in the spacious Place de l’Etang, the Provençale pastime once again tests delegates’ hand/eye coordination, strategic skills and gamesmanship. The traditional glass of pastis is optional but a ruthless streak is a must, given the tournament’s knockout format.
Food will be on hand to fortify winners and losers alike.
