Yachting-Club de Taussat

Taussat Yachting Club

By order of the prefect, on February 11, 1901, the creation of the Taussat Yachting Club was authorized. This sailing society, affiliated to the Arcachon Yachting Club, wished to develop pleasure boating (sail, steam and rowing boats), as well as organise regattas. It wanted to "shine the spotlight, in the maritime area of Arcachon, upon the healthy and attractive aspects of this noble sport".
