42th Festival Armen
8th to 17th of March
The Festival Armen, which was created in 1978, is an event recognised and prized with more than 70 boats competing.
The name ARMEN is a contraction of Art Mer ( Sea) and Neige ( snow) and of course making reference to the light of the same name.
This event quickly generated much enthusiasm so that it is now endowed with a new sailing and skiing competition named after Andre Herman.
