Les Voiles de Saint-Barth 2014

Les Voiles de Saint-Barth are celebrating their fifth anniversary this year. 70 of the most beautiful yachts in the Caribbean, 1,000 sailors from around the world will race for 4 days under the sponsorship of Jean Todt and Professor Gérard Saillant, President of the Institute of Brain and Spinal Cord (ICM).
The greatest riders met in the port of Gustavia, and for the first day of racing, the conditions were up to the expectations of the riders and the reputation of the island! Sun, heat, sea of oil and some 10 knots of wind. The tortuous loops of the 28-mile course around the islets north of St. Barth forced the crews to adjust their speed and navigate "glued-tight".
