Capsizing makes the difference - Day 3 St. Barth Cata Cup 2014


The race on Saturday at the St-Barth Cata Cup was much more difficult then the previous days. The first and only race of the day, from St-Jean Bay with a race around the Toc-Verts and Bonhomme islands, was postponed till 2 p.m. due to 30 knots of breeze. During the whole race there has been a fight between Morgan Lagraviere/Arnaud Jarlegan and Franck Cammas/Matthieu Vandame. At the end of the race a capsize by Cammas/Vandame gave Lagraviere/Jarlegan a free passage to the finishline. Frédéric Duthil/Frédéric Moreau finished in 3rd place.

Heavy conditions on day 1 St. Barth Cata Cup 2014


The St Barth Cata Cup 2014 has started. On the first day the F18 sailors had some real challenging conditions. With a 15 to 20 knot breeze and 2 meter-high waves some teams had a pretty hard time and skipped the the race or had to abandon due to capsize or injury. But overall, two nice races with a well aligned fleet on the starting line. The sporting level for the top racers was very high and the first 5 battled it out well.
