Les Voiles riding high as always

Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez

24th September – 2nd October

 

It was a full house again for Les Voiles with more than 300 boats competing including many members from our Club in different classes. Faithful among the faithful, the four centenarian 15M IR gaff rig yachts were at the meeting. At the end of six days of racing the team on Mariska won the event, thereby clinching this class’s 2016 championship title. Tuiga, helmed by Pierre Casiraghi was 3rd.
