In the five years since the Les Voiles de Saint Barth event was created, it has become one of the most important and exclusive sailing races and glamorous sport events of the Caribbean. With each year, its reputation has spread by word of mouth attracting new sailors and enthusiasts to come and share in the joys of yachting around the turquoise waters and idyllic island of Saint Barth in the Caribbean.

The combination of challenging racing and fabulous island life attracts a whole host of owners from international photographers, royalty and racing enthusiasts to enter with some of the world’s best sailors: Bouwe Bekking, Ken Read, Loïck Peyron, Peter Holmberg, Gavin Brady and many more, to race over four days. The pristine white sand beaches, excellent restaurants and varied shops mean there is little time to be lost on shore too.


From 14th to 19th April 2014, St. Barth will be host to the fifth edition of the Voiles de Saint Barth. More than seventy boats and 1000 sailors are expected to attend the event, which in just four editions has become a must for those who enjoy racing in the Caribbean. Owners, sailors and partners from all over the world have got it right.
