It did not take long for Les Voiles de St-Barth to become a must-attend event in the Caribbean yachting season. It attracts the best sailors, often involved in the most prestigious international sailing circuits such as the America's Cup or the Olympics, including Loïck Peyron, Lionel Péan, Bruno Troublé, Ken Read, Peter Holmberg, Cam Lewis and Terry Hutchinson, to name just a few.
The fleet has grown bigger year after year, with more and more Maxis and multihulls entering the competition. These big, fast boats are often involved in the other major regattas in the Caribbean.
