An extra day of racing adds to the competitiveness
Les Voiles de Saint-Barth has been a bucket list event for sailors since its inception in 2010, and for its ninth edition, scheduled April 8-14, 2018, the competition is already stacking up with top players, including U.S. maxi teams Rambler 88 and Proteus, both committed to compete. For the first time in the regatta’s history, a fifth day of racing has also been added to the schedule.
“It’s something we’ve been thinking about for a while now and after receiving positive feedback from competitors, we decided to go ahead and move forward with the plan,” said Regatta Director François Tolède adding that the regatta will kick off on Sunday, April 8 and wrap up Saturday, April 14, with racing scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The official “Day Off” is scheduled for Thursday. “The extra day of racing will bring even more competitiveness and fun to the regatta, which we know is exactly what our participants are interested in!”
