Les Voiles de Saint-Barth, 1st edition

The first edition of Les Voiles De Saint-Barth starts on the 6th of April, 2010. This new rendez-vous is organized by the St Barth Yacht Club, affiliated to the Fédération Française de Voile and the Caribbean Sailing Association.

The inspiration for “Les Voiles de Saint Barth” is to create a regatta for beautiful sailboats and more simple ones to navigate in our waters in a festive spirit: a regatta with a friendly get-together.

Cette première édition s'annonce sous les meilleurs auspices avec 34 pré-inscrits répartis en 5 classes :

  • Super Yacht
  • Classic
  • Racing
  • Racing-Cruising
  • Racing-Multihull
  • How to see sailboats from the island

    • The Port of Gustavia: The sailboats will be anchored at the docks. In general, they lift their anchors between 9am and 10am, and return around 5pm.

    • Fort Oscar and Fort Carl: the starting line is visible from the summits of these forts in Gustavia. According to the itinerary, the boats stay close to the coast as far as Gouverneur, either at the start or finish of the race.

    • Météo Caraïbes: Located near the lighthouse above Gustavia, this is an ideal place to watch the start and finish, as well as the boats leaving and returning to the port.

    • The Lookout Point in Colombier: Good spot to see the boats when they are between the outlying islands or during a race around the island.
