It's "go time" for the 7th edition of Les Voiles de St. Barth! Monday, April, 11th: Official Opening of Les Voiles de St. Barth 2016 - more info: http://www.lesvoilesdesaintbarth.com/site/us/
It's show time - Les Voiles de Saint Barth 2016 : Les Voiles de Saint Barth 2016: "Plenty of recognizable names -both in terms of boats and people – will attend, starting with the returning 100-foot speed machine Comanche and its celebrity owners Jim and Kristy Hinze-Clark and skipper Ken Read, who is at once one of the most celebrated sailors in the world and the 2016 event's “Godfather”, chosen by the organizers to oversee the spirit of the event. Then there's the mighty multihull Phaedo3 and its skipper Lloyd Thornburg, who has made it his mission to break any and all speed records he can…and he has. Add to that the new 100-foot technological wonder Galateia; an excellent gathering of three Volvo boats (Brunel, SFS and Ambersail, with Bouwe Bekking, Lionel Pean and Linas Ivanauskas in charge, respectively); two Maxi 72s (Dieter Schoen’s Momo and George Sakellaris’s Proteus); the 94′ Windfall(Tim Goodbody); 92-foot La Bête (Yves Montanari); and 82′ Highland Fling XI(Irvine Laidlaw) and you’ve got quite a spectacle percolating on the big-boat end of things...."
