    Water jousting

    The very first water jousting took place during the inauguration of the harbour of Sète, that was supposed to become an outlet for the Canal du Midi during the 17th century. Since then, the water jousting is held from mid-June to mid-September on the canals of the town centre, by using colourful little boats and as a climax the Saint Louis: the finals of the tournament on 25 August.
