Very soon, a great humanitarian event will be organised on the coasts of the Mediterranean. “Les Voiles de l’Espoir” (Sails of Hope) is the world’s largest organised nautical event for children in remission from cancer or leukemia.
Initiated in 2001, and held every two years, Les Voiles de l’Espoir, organised by Ronde Table France, aims to share a week of sailing for these children.
With over 60 sailboats available, 100 children from eight to 14 will take part from all over the world, including France, the Antilles, Reunion Island, New Caledonia, Morocco, and Luxembourg, to participate in various events over seven days.
More than 650 volunteers will be at their side to allow them to escape, to forget, and to discover, safely, the world of sailing and the sea.
The 2017 Edition, the ninth is the series, will take place from June 10 to 17 along the Côte d’Azur and the Mediterranean coast between Grimaud, Saint Raphaël, Cannes and, on Tuesday, June 13, Monaco.
