Good afternoon all.
I know it has been a while since I have written weekly updates on the events that happen in and around St Tropez and I apologise (to, I hope, the many many avid readers who impatiently await my next post haha).
So, here goes for this week’s events (and again I am late in writing this one as it is already Wednesday… sorry again) :
Thursday 13th – Sunday 16th June
Hubside Jumping – 182 Chemin Camp Marin
Located in the picturesque town of Grimaud, the Hubside Jumping is a unique showcase for top-level sport against the backdrop of the grandiose landscapes of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Sponsored by HUBSIDE and SFAM, and created by Sadri Fegaier, a businessman and riding enthusiast, each competition promises to be a unique event in the heart of the Côte d’Azur.

Bravade des Espagnols
The Bravade tradition of June 15, known as the “Spanish Bravado” commemorates a battle that took place exactly 380 years ago… On June 15, 1637. 21 Spanish galleys (A galley is a type of ship that is propelled mainly by rowing. The galley is characterized by its long, slender hull, shallow draft and low freeboard (clearance between sea and railing) … Galleys were the warships used by the early Mediterranean naval powers, including the Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans.) attempted to storm the city. Despite their lack of soldiers, the Tropezians managed the feat of repelling the enemy. It is in memory of this heroic act and to praise the courage of its inhabitants and combatants, that Saint-Tropez has not failed to commemorate the Spanish Bravado for nearly four centuries.
Quai Jean Jaurès
