The unique combination of sportsmanship and conviviality, which makes for excitement both on the water and ashore, attracts a growing number of competitors. Among them are some of the leading names in the sailing world, and they make an exceptional line-up at an event firmly anchored as one of the Caribbean’s major sailing meets.

After three days of tight competition on the waters off the French West Indies island of St. Barth, many of the teams racing in Les Voiles de St. Barth headed into the final day today with the hopes of either dismounting class leaders or fending off competitors that were climbing up in the rankings.

The eighth edition of the regatta didn’t disappoint, with a week of fun and entertainment satisfying sailors both on and off the water.
In the end, winners were crowned in all nine classes.

In Maxi 1, the competition was tight between the eight boats, but George Sakellaris’ Proteus shined throughout the week, defending its 2016 class win and finishing off the regatta with a solid three-point lead over second-place finisher Prospector.

Also, for overall best performance among all Maxis competing, Sakellaris took home the regatta’s most coveted prize, the Richard Mille 60-01 Regatta Flyback Chronograph timepiece.

‘Preparation also means analysing the course, the weather report and the behaviour of the sea.
In Saint Barts, there are rocks scattered all over, so it’s important to always anticipate your trajectory.’
Loïck Peyron, a sailing legend and master of ceremonies for the 2015 edition of Les Voiles de St Barth.
