4th Les Voiles de St Barth dates: 8-13 April, 2013

April 16, 2012

An extraordinary week of racing was seen at St Barths, during the event held for the third consecutive year in the French Indies. It has taken only three years for the Les Voiles de St Barth to become ‘The Event’ on the Caribbean race calendar, with the organisers announcing the dates for the 4th edition to be held from April 8th to 13th, 2013.

By looking at the number of entrants in the first three editions of Les Voiles de St. Barth – 28 in 2010, 48 in 2011, and 58 this year – one can see the trend of positive growth. Race organizers François Tolède, Luc Poupon, and Annelisa Gee, have worked carefully to ensure that the event expands carefully, seeking input from competitors. Gee said, “At the end of the day we talk to everyone. We appreciate constructive criticism that helps us grow the event. People have been very forthcoming; they really appreciate that we are not fixed in our ways. That’s the beauty of a new event — we are completely open-minded to change.”

Competitors enjoyed four days of racing in an extremely wide range of conditions, from five to 25 knots, on different courses, each of them highly tactical and spectacular. The Maxi class, which numbered nine boats, attempted in vain to chase George David’s sailing yacht Rambler 90, the winner of a second trophy after her success in 2010 (Rambler 100 won in 2011).

Each of the seven classes competing saw some bitter-fought, yet friendly struggles. The quality of the international crews many of them professionals from the America’s Cup, Olympics, and other grand-prix events meant that this event in St Barth had an excellent line-up, which included Bouwe Bekking (Nilaya), Scott Vogel, Shannon Falcone, Jerry Kirby (Rambler 90), Steve Benjamin and Dee Smith (Decision), Gavin Brady (Vesper), Cam Lewis (Paradox), Charlie McKee and Ross MacDonald (Mayhem), Tony Rey, Jeff Madrigali and Nacho Postigo (PowerPlay), as well as the French sailors Jean-Paul Mouren (Med Spirit), Lionel Péan and Jacques Vincent (Sojana). All the sailors enjoyed an amazing week of racing on the waters around St. Barth.

The event enjoys the continued support of watchmaker Richard Mille and sportswear brand Gaastra. Other event partners included leading St. Barth villa rental agencies WIMCO and Sibarth. Both companies offer a gorgeous portfolio of private villas for rent on St. Barth, and their sponsorships included presenting five Les Voiles class winners – Classic, Spinnaker I & II, Non-Spinnaker, and Multi-hull – with a complimentary week in one of their top villas, with their own concierge ready to attend to every request, a prize that provided significant motivation to skippers and crews.

While race organizers are extremely pleased at the continued success of the Les Voiles event, their team is already looking forward to the 2013 event. Said Francois Tolède, “The harbor in Gustavia cannot grow in size, and we shall soon be reaching the limit on number of yachts we can accommodate, around the 80 – 90 mark. Management will become an even greater issue and we want to maintain a stress-free, easy-going way of organizing things. We reach for a high-class event with a French touch!”

Pendennis Sailing Yacht Christopher and Classic Yacht Rebecca in dramatic St. Barth’s Bucket Regatta finish

April 06, 2011

A dramatic end to a fantastic week of sailing with two of Pendennis’ most iconic 40m plus sailing yachts battling for the lead on the final race day of last week’s St. Barth’s Bucket regatta. During the event, which celebrated 25 years of Bucket racing, recently launched SY Christopher and classic ketch SY Rebecca performed spectacularly, culminating in a nail biting downwind leg of the clockwise course with both yachts at the head of the 40-strong regatta fleet.

Sailing yacht Christopher was completed at Pendennis’ Falmouth facility early in 2011 and the 46m ketch flew through her first Atlantic crossing in 12 days, arriving in the Caribbean in good time to take part in the regatta.

Racing at the helm, designer Ron Holland commented, ‘Racing aboard Christopher, after she directly sailed across the Atlantic to St Barth’s from completion in Falmouth, presented potential challenges. Considering this, I was thrilled with her performance during the Bucket.

We found Christopher capable in all the conditions experienced. The highlight of the regatta was finishing alongside Rebecca on the last race. This was an exciting conclusion to the story of Christopher’s creation.’

Although the competition between the two yachts was intense, both raced in good spirit, with sailing yacht Rebecca taking the title in the ‘Les Elegantes des Mers’ class and Christopher finishing just behind her in fourth place. The regatta proved a great success for both yachts, and an excellent starting point for the Christopher adventure.
