Léman Tradition

Léman Tradition is an event that allows tourists and the inhabitants of the region to discover vintage boats by proposing various regatta and theme cruises.

The largest lake of Western Europe is fortunate to have many crafts dating from the last century and even the 19th century. The lateen sailboat, for instance, is probably the most symbolic witness of intense trade navigation on Lake Geneva.

Boats restored or reconstructed according to authentic period blueprints, La Vaudoise, La Neptune, La Savoie, L’Aurore and La Liberté are all crafts that represent an unequalled cultural heritage. At one time totally dedicated to the transport of merchandise, today they sail for the sheer pleasure of their passengers.

The spectators can take full advantage of a dream cruise on one of these vintage lateen sailboats of Lake Geneva. Alpine horn, wine-tasting or fireworks display cruises make up an elaborate and colourful programme!
