Classics Return For The 9 th Edition
The organizers of Les Voiles de Saint-Barth are happy to open the Classic and Traditional Yachts Class for the first time in four years.
“We had to forsake that class as we did not want to compete with the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, held at the same time as Les Voiles de Saint-Barth,” explains Luc Poupon, race director. “This year, the Antigua Classic will be held on April 18- 24. Those who would like to can now participate in both regattas, with four days in between.”
Les Voiles de Saint-Barth is always happy to host these beautiful period boats, which represent a veritable maritime museum as well as demonstrate an expression of the traditional spirit of yachting.
We remember the participation of certain stars of the Classic Mediterranean circuit, such as the 1930 Marconi sloop, The Blue Peter, designed by Alfred Milne, the ketch Saphaedra, and the modern Wild Horses, from the speedy W Class.
These magnificent boats will put on a much-anticipated show of their own, in the center of the fleet for Les Voiles.
