It’s been 10 years since Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille started, back in 2010 ! 10 years of incredible sailing in this breathtaking playground that is St Barth !
Picture-perfect conditions greeted the fleets to kickstart the 10th anniversary edition of Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille as the nine classes raced around the west side of St. Barth on racecourses ranging from 24 – 36 nautical miles in 15 – 20 knots of breeze.
Of the 2019 entries, almost 30 percent are first-timers, a sure sign of this regatta’s popularity known for delivering the perfect blend of great racing, gorgeous scenery and the St. Barth signature relaxed shoreside atmosphere.
« Everything about this regatta is so nice, » said Marijn Van der Straaten, the Dutch sailor from Curacao, here for the first time racing in CSA 5. « I like the harbor here, and how all the boats and the Race Village are all so close together. The set up makes it so much more personal. This is how a regatta should be. »
