This is a two day event, totally organized around the principle of, let's have fun and share our joys of sailing these beautiful little small crafts. People come from all over Europe and sometimes even further. Multiple races are organized but nothing on a serious level as the awards ceremony on Sunday evening is full of silly prizes, loads of laugh, and bottles of wine for every participant!
All the boats pulled up at the picnic area, lining there boats on the shores and preparing for all the fun to be had. Music was played, food and wine were served, and I enjoyed walking around and admiring all the beautiful small crafts were the seemed perfectly at home!
So, it's now time to wait for another two years for the next fete des canots...and I am hoping to be around to participate again!
