Escale à Sète in Easter

What a better way of launching our new boat Chronos that going this Easter to Escale à Sète, the most important festival of maritime traditions in the entire Mediterranean. Sailing, we will arrive there, where days with all kinds of activities related to the sea await us: visits to the great classic sailboats, traditional Mediterranean music, local cuisine … All that and much more is what we are going to find in this small coastal town.

Join us!

During Easter and for 6 days we go to Sète, in the south of France to celebrate the most important festival of seafaring traditions in all of Europe.

Visit classic sailboats, taste typical dishes from the sea, and listen traditional marine music, which plays everywhere

For a week, and since its first edition in 2010, the small fishing village of Sète, has become a meeting point for seafarers from all over the Mare Nostrum and other seas to celebrate their party. Those days bring together great classic sailboats that can be visited, as well as replicas of some historical sailboats, famous péniche, barges that cross the channels of France, the jousting boats and the traditional rowing boats.

Traditional seafaring music transmitted from parents to children everywhere, on the docks, taverns, streets, where we will also find a gastronomy straight out of the sea. You see, a party for all the senses … who is with us?
