St Barts, Caribbean
14 - 20 Apr 2019
Expected to be bigger than ever before, Les Voiles des Saint Barth will rev up the celebrations for its 10th anniversary edition, which takes place from 14 to 20 April.
Competitive racing is guaranteed at the event, with winners such as PROTEUS and WINDFALL returning each year for another round of nail-biting action. The beautiful St Barts backdrop is another major draw for competitors and spectators alike.
The thrilling racing was extended to take place across five days last year and this will continue into 2019. There was also a new award, the Richard Mile Maxi Cup, for the yacht who notches up the quickest time on a particular circuit and this will be back too.
Organisers have moved the regatta in 2019 to take place one week later than usual, so it coincides with the Caribbean low season. With more space in the marina and low season rates available during this time, the event hopes to attract even more sailors.
Away from the water, there is a vibrant social programme of evening entertainment. Celebratory spirits are anticipated to be even higher than usual as events look to mark the 10th edition in the utmost style.
