  • Created in 1978, the ARMEN Festival is a renowned and popular event (sometimes more than 70 yachts compete). The name "ARMEN", a contraction of ARt MEr Neige, is of course also a nod to the lighthouse of the same name.

  • In addition to the rankings for each discipline: Sailing, Skiing and Art, there are three prizes to be won by competitors:

    The "André Hermann" Challenge: best combined ski-sail ranking

    The "René Perrier" Challenge: best combined Art-Sailing ranking

    And of course, the Armen Trophy: best combined Art-Ski-Sail ranking

    Note that this event counts towards the IRC Mediterranean crewed ranking.
