One of the most famous regatta in Caribean
Les Voiles de St. Barth, launched in 2010, is an event created especially for Saint Barth to continue the long, colorful history of racing on the island, from Loulou’s Regatta back in the 1970’s with its 100 sailboats to the Transat AG2R, the Route du Rose, and the St Barth Bucket Regatta. Since its debut, Les Voiles has continued to grow, becoming one of the most important regattas in the Caribbean.
The 2019 regatta will be special in several ways. First, because it’s our 10th anniversary, and of course we hope it’s a huge success in spite of the remaining traces of hurricane Irma, which ravaged the island in September 2017.
But 2019 also marks the strengthening of our relationship with Richard Mille, who has become the title partner of the event, which will now be known as Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille. As the regatta organizers, we are very proud of the trust that Richard Mille has placed in us, and over time has become more than just a sponsor.
Not only do we share the same set of values but also our respective universes are closely aligned. As we see it, highly competitive sailing and the art of luxury horology both embrace extreme performance, the latest technology, and strong artistic dimensions, as well as respect for traditions and the discipline required. These values will be reinforced again this year, as this edition of Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille will be totally eco-responsible. The environment is a vital force that we have taken into consideration for a long time, and that we should all respect.
