15th Edition of Les Voiles de St. Tropez A Success

From September 27 to October, the 15th edition of Les Voiles St. Tropez met expectations and was a spectacular display of yacht racing, with some exemplary modern and classic sail yachts of the global charter fleet on display.

From September 27 to October St. Tropez played a great host to the world famous regatta and weather conditions could not have been more agreeable for 4,000 sailors who took part within the 20 competing classes.

André Beaufils, President of the Société Nautique de St. Tropez commented that everyone involved has “enjoyed a beautiful edition” and that “All our teams, both on shore and on the water have done a remarkable job in a great atmosphere.”

Looking to next year’s event, he added that organisers would look to “address the balance between the number of traditional and modern yachts” so categories complement the number of yachts who desire to compete.

Charter yachts ELENA and MOONBEAM IV both starred in the ‘Grand Tradition’ category, with the former outpowering the rest of the competition.
