A word from Yves Foulon, Mayor of Arcachon

Dear Madam,
Dear Sir,
Dear players,

It is with great pleasure that I wish you, on behalf of all Arcachonians, welcome to our city for this first edition of the International Bridge Festival of the Arcachon Bay.

The bridge and Arcachon, it is a marriage which lasts since 1903, date of creation of our club, one of the first to have been founded in France. With this Festival, our desire is to make our city and the Bay a recognized reference.

This exciting intellectual and mental game use of intelligence, logic and concentration. It is also a source of suspense, thrills and adrenaline rushes. It is also a vector of social connection and an opportunity to broaden your circle of friends and professionals.

Your passion is lived and shared without moderation, and we are both happy and eager to welcome you. I wish you all the best tournaments yet to come and to share many moments rich in exchanges and friendliness. Hope your stay in Arcachon will rhyme with discoveries, emotions and pleasures!

Mayor of Arcachon
