After Hurricane Irma the island of Saint Barthélemy is recovering quickly and we are pleased to announce that CODE-ZERO is an official sponsor of Les Voiles de Saint Barth! The 9th edition of the first-class sailing event will take place from 8 to 14 April 2018 on the paradisiacal island. The first races will be from 09th to 11th April 2018 - on Thursday the traditional "Day Off" will follow and on Friday & Saturday two additional race days follow. Saint Barth is one of the absolute hotspots of the scene and attracts numerous visitors to the dreamscape every year.

In 2010 the Voiles de Saint Barth regatta took place for the first time - created by the two friends François Tolède and Luc Poupon. In the first year 27 boats are started and the legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier served as the official ambassador.

Facts


The weather on the island of Saint Barthélemy is ideal for the first-class races in April. The speeds of the trade winds from 17 to 32 knots are always a challenge even for the experienced crews and will challenge the crews to their full capacity.
