Jimmy Buffett named 2018 Ambassador
Les Voiles de Saint-Barth welcome back legendary musician and sailor Jimmy Buffett as the regatta’s official U.S. ambassador.
“We all love our special island and we’re moving on from the wrath that Irma brought, and nothing signifies the recovery to me more than the return of Les Voiles de Saint-Barth,” said Buffett who owns a villa on Saint-Barth and last held this honorary position back in 2011. “All the boats and teams return this year to support the rebuilding of our island and have a little fun as well.”
On Wednesday, December 27, Buffett will be playing a free concert in the Saint-Barth capital of Gustavia. The American singer’s relationship with the island spans many decades and some of his most legendary songs were inspired by Saint-Barth. He is an active participant in the recovery of the island post Hurricane Irma and hopes the concert will help in those efforts!
