The French Antilles Island St. Barth, belonging to the Leeward Islands and often referred to as the ‘St. Tropez of the Caribbean’, offers dreamlike sailing condtions, turquoise blue waters and average temperatures of 29 to 32 degrees. „St Barth’s configuration is a real advantage for us: the coast landscapes of the island are very different from one another and there are about 15 small islands around St Barth, which give us the opportunity to organize diversified race courses, with multiple legs and sail angles and therefore a lot of manoeuvres for the crews.”, explains race director Luc Poupon.
Within the six classes setting sail – Maxi, IRC 52, Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, Melges 24 and Racing Multihull – the presence of eight prestigious maxi boats will offer a fantastic show gathering in Gustavia, St Barth’s main port.
