His latest collection includes resolutely contemporary works with a design and architectural style. The artist draws his inspiration from ancient civilizations – Egyptian and Mayan.

- 20.08-21.08: Régate L’Aoutienne + Paella
This traditional summer event, initiated by Robert and France Pourchet nearly thirty years ago, remains a must-attend event of the summer. It is in their memory that their son, Eric Pourchet and his grandchildren, Arthur and Stéphanie, have taken up the torch for the last three years by contributing to the event, thus allowing the event to continue in the same family and festive spirit! As a tradition of the Pourchet family, the competitors will meet before the regatta, as every year, at the Club House of the Société Nautique for a good moment of conviviality in music around a good paella.
- 10.09-11.09: Sail GP Saint-Tropez 2022
An event full of adrenaline. For its 2nd season, Sail GP is adding Saint-Tropez to its track. A race with 8 teams competing on board of F50 catamarans, one of the fastest racing classes with speeds that can exceed 50 knots. The principle is simple: 8 teams, 8 races, 8 identical boats. Each event takes place over 2 days (3 races per day) and the final race will pit the three highest ranked teams against each other for the title of event champion.
- 24.09-08.10: Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez
Since 2020, the event, whose DNA is to have modern and classic boats sailing on the same stretch of water, takes place over two weeks, and all starts take place in front of the village of Saint-Tropez. During the first week, from 24 September to 1 October 2022, the event welcomes all classic boats, without size limit, and modern boats, up to 18m28. The usual programme remains unchanged with the prize-giving ceremony scheduled for the evening of Saturday 1 October. During the week of October 2 to 8, 2022, it will be the turn of the large modern boats and the multihulls of the Performance Cruising Multihulls class which will benefit from specific courses with all the starts in front of the town of Saint-Tropez. The regattas start on October 4th. The prize-giving ceremony will take place on the evening of Saturday 8th October. Around 250 boats will participate in the first week and around 50 modern “Maxi Yachts” are expected in the second week.
- 05.05-09.10: Signac et Saint-Tropez – Musée de L’Annonciade
Although the name of Signac is inextricably linked to Saint-Tropez, some people are unaware of the extent to which he was intrinsically responsible for the artistic and heritage wealth of the Var town. May 2022 is the 130th anniversary of the painter’s arrival on board the Olympia in the port of Saint-Tropez. The Museum of Saint-Tropez, whose first configuration of “Museon Tropelen” was created in 1922, owes him a great debt of gratitude and will honour his memory with the temporary exhibition Signac and Saint-Tropez.
