La Nioulargue is a deep sea, located off Pampelonne beach, which gave its name to a week of classic sailing regattas in Saint-Tropez, from 1981 to 1995. In 1999, this end-of-season meeting in the Mediterranean will resume under the name of the Voiles de Saint Tropez.

For this photo "I'm attending an edge-on-board of anthology between two giants of the history of traditional sailing: the Class J Astra and Candida. It is for me the greatest pleasure of the sailor-photographer that I am! This is one of my first posters shared with all lovers of sailing and sea photography." Philip Plisson

Philip was born on the banks of the Loire river, and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer when he was 4 years old. This is where his father gave him his first passion: sailing. The need of sea will not leave him anymore! At 9, he discovered his second passion: the photo thanks to his paternal grandmother who offered him his first camera. In the early 80's, Philip decided to live with his two passions: photographing to navigate and navigate to photographing. Named Painter of the French Navy in 1991, he testifies to the major events related to the sea world in order to preserve the memory of our contemporary maritimity, as had wished Richelieu creating the Corps of Painters of the Navy. Philip, as a sailor-photographer, has only one leitmotiv: to have every day a new desire of image to take and to share with you. For more information :
