    Full Sail In Full Swell




    Monday and Tuesday’s brisk easterlies eased to the high teens for day three of maxi racing at the Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille, the third event of the International Maxi Association’s new Caribbean Maxi Challenge. However the elements were no less brutal with the Maxi class sent off on a long 47 mile course, a first beat then exposing them to the full brunt of the Atlantic swell on the windward side of St Barts. This was followed by a long broad reach across...

    The (big) sprint is on!

    The 33 Figarists involved in the 19th edition of the Solo Ma?tre CoQ got to the heart of the matter on Tuesday. At 11:50 am, with a very slight delay on the scheduled time, they set off on the long course of the event, propelled by a northerly wind blowing between 10 and 12 knots. A flow which should however ease during the afternoon and switch to the northwest, thus making the first miles of the race to the Ile de R? tricky, the bypass of
