A Fifth Day Added To The Regatta!
9th Edition of Les Voiles: A Fifth Day Added To The Regatta!
The organizers of Les Voiles de St. Barth, François Tolède and Luc Poupon, have decided to add a fifth day to the regatta, for the first time in its history.
The 9th edition will officially begin on April 8, 2018, with an opening ceremony on Sunday evening, and the first race scheduled for Monday afternoon. There will be three days of racing from Monday through Wednesday, with the traditional day off on Thursday so the crews can rest and take advantage of the beauty of St. Barthélemy, plus two additional days of racing on Friday and Saturday.
“Our goal is above all to listen to the participants,” explains Luc Poupon. “In extending the length of the regatta, we are adding to their sense of competitiveness.”
So for next year, we are looking forward to great sailing as well as surprises on the podium. Everybody get ready!
