After the Balearics (14th-16th August), Monaco Classic Week (9th-13th September) and Portofino (17th-19th September), Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez was the last stage in the ‘15 Meter Class Association Championship’ supported by Rolex.
Mariska (1908), Tuiga (1909), Hispania (1909), and The Lady Anne (1912)
are the only survivors of a class that numbered around 20 boats in the early 20th century and dominated the European regatta scene from 1906 to 1917.
Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez was the decider between title holder for the last two years, Mariska, and Tuiga.
Having benefited from a day racing on Monday, the class managed a total of five races despite a week interrupted by strong winds, with The Lady Anne winning the Saint-Tropez competition
The Yacht Club de Monaco ‘s gaff gutter Tuiga, helmed at the beginning of the week by YCM General Secretary Bernard d’Alessandri and today by YCM Vice-President Pierre Casiraghi, finished third overall ahead of Mariska. The Monegasque team therefore wins the 15 Meter Class Association Annual Trophy 2015 by one point, proof of the high level and fierce battles that define this competition, with all four winning at least one race this week.
