Pamala Baldwin, owner of the J/122 Liquid, frequently races the Caribbean circuit but until this regatta she and young Skipper Jules White hadn't quite cracked the top of the podium.

She added Mike Giles as tactician and coach to complement the young talented team, and according to Baldwin, "It was the final piece we needed to complete the winning puzzle. My heart is filled with joy."

Liquid's Skipper, Julian White, age 25 of Lymington, UK is also the racing yacht's manager and according to Baldwin, "Jules is someone the racing world needs to keep an eye on...he maneuvered Liquid through this entire season. We competed in every Caribbean Regatta, including the Caribbean 600, with consistent podium results."

Giles has raced almost every Les Voiles in the Maxi class, and really enjoyed his time in the smaller CSA 4 fleet. "In this fleet there are no "gimmies' it's an incredibly competitive class with close racing," the South African said. "The racing is just as tough, if not harder than when I'm in the Maxis."

Baldwin remarked, "My entire stellar crew of 10 are under age 30 competing against seasoned pros you have no idea of my pride, knowing Liquid is providing a platform for their future racing careers".

Challenging and exhaustingbut to sweep the entire 5 CSA classes during Les Voiles' 10th prestigious regatta with bullet after bullet is as exhilarating as rewarding. It doesn't get better than this."
