Arcachon Pinasse Regatta


Arcachon in summer time is seafood and sailing delight!  The warm waters of the Arcachon Bay have been an ideal growing place for oysters since Roman times; the revered oysters are traditionally eaten with a small, flat local sausage (crepinettes) or vinegared shallots.  The oyster farming in this area has gently shaped the local landscape and people, creating an environment which is really distinctive and totally authentic.

In August up to 100,000 visitors throng to the Sea Festival and Pinasse Regatta -  events which celebrate everything to do with the sea and its influence on the local Arcachon Bay culture.
