Les Voiles de St. Barth 2012: Once Around

April 07, 2012

Today the Les Voiles de St. Barth sailors competed in the famous round-the-island race. At the start off Gustavia, an eight to ten knot southeasterly helped send the seven classes off the line. Around the southern end, out of the lee of the island, boats encountered more breeze and bigger swells. Added to that, several rain squalls brought more wind as well, with boats experiencing 20-25 knots in the passing showers.
