It is with great pleasure that I wish you, on behalf of all Arcachonians, welcome to our city for this second edition of the International Bridge Festival of the Arcachon Basin.
The bridge and Arcachon, it is a marriage that lasts since 1903, date of creation of our club, one of the first to have been founded in France. With this Festival, and after a first successful edition, our will remains the same, that of making Arcachon and the Bassin, a recognized reference.
Our city is therefore proud to welcome in the Palais des Congrès for this second edition, players from all backgrounds, who will find in Arcachon, I am convinced, all the comfort necessary for the practice of their sport as well as multiple structures and an ideal environmental setting to relax throughout the competition.
I thank Emilie PINEL and Franck BUSSELIER, respectively president and director of the festival, as well as the whole organizing team for this beautiful event which contributes to the attractiveness of our city.
Good festival to all in the pleasure of the game and the friendliness and good stay under the sun of Arcachon!
The Mayor of Arcachon
