Endless glistening seas, magical shores and clear blue skies: Welcome to Saint Barth! Gaastra International Sportswear is the official partner of the exclusive Caribbean sailing regatta Les Voiles de Saint-Barth for the third consecutive time, which will be held in 2013 from April 8 to 13. Sixty-five boats representing around fifteen nationalities will be competing at the fourth edition of the six- class (Maxi Racing/Maxi Racing Cruising, IRC 52, Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, Racing Multihull and Classic yachts) French West Indies Regatta at St. Barth’s sailing paradise with its extraordinary waters. For four years now, the Race Director, Luc Poupon has been laying out race courses for the Voiles de St-Barth based around the geography of the island for the various categories of boat and depending on the weather conditions that are possible out on the water. ‘The layout of Saint-Barth is a real asset for us, as the coastal landscapes of the island are all very different and the presence of fifteen or so little islands means we can organize a wide range of race courses with a lot of changes of direction, which require a lot of manoeuvres from the crews,’ explained Luc. 28 race courses ranging from 14 to 40 miles are being prepared beforehand, with the same starting line in the roadstead off Gustavia and the finish in the area around the Petits Saints. The final choice will depend on the weather conditions on the eve of the starts.

After Jimmy Buffet and Peter Harrison, it’s now the turn of Jim Swartz to have the “Godfather” role of the 2013 Competition. Swartz raced in all of the event’s previous three runnings and won the 2011 event with his IRC 52 Vesper – he will compete again this year with his 16-member crew that includes recognizable names from the America’s Cup and match racing arena. The IRC-challenge against the German Ker 51 Varuna of Jens Kellinghusen will be a must see for fans of high quality racing! Close to a dozen Swan yachts have registered as well for Les Voiles de St. Barth 2013, including the 110’ Varsovie, 57’ Alpha Centaury and the 45’ Satori with Dutch Prince Maurits of Orange-Nassau as trimmer on deck. Six Melges 24 boats, their speed record is known at 25 knots, will be vying for success off Saint Barth too. This year, the Spinnaker class will be very competitive with a strong 38-boat fleet competing. View all the Entries 2013 here at a glance!

Cruises or skiing holidays belong to the classic vacations during winter season: One sailing journey trend becomes increasingly popular: The active sailing trips. Most notably on the Canaries and sailing paradise Caribbean, beginner sailors and sailing experienced sailors find perfect conditions while winter and couches dominate our regions. Those, who rather want to swap for a catamaran, will surely be in good hands on an active sailing trip!

A special and paradisian sailing route leads from french Martinique, called Isle of Flowers (Madinina) by the locals, over St. Lucia to St. Vincent to the Tobago Cays. Turquoise blue water, colourful coral reefs and the for the region typical trade winds drive the catamarane: On this sailing journey you can discover nature and get to know the other crew members as well. For within the active sailing trips, the personal togetherness and team spirit are to the fore at the same time. The caribbean trip catamaranes own usually four crew cabs, one skipper cab and a big salon, for eight guests altogether – for recreation in the sun and active sailing as well of course! Wheter as a family, a smaller group, couple or single – all unifies the passion for sailing.

A two week caribbean sailing journey starting at Martinique offers for example the german experienced Kaya Lodge sailing journeys. You will sail on a catamarane Belize 43, sailing knowledge is not absolutely necessary. Different dates you can book on the Kaya Lodge Website also for the Canary Islands, Croatia, Sardinia and much more destinations. A special note you must make in your sailing calendar 2012 as well will be from april 2-7 – since this time, the second edition of the renowned Gaastra sponsored caribbean Les Voiles de St. Barth 2012 will take place! Selected fashion from the Gaastra VIP-Collection 2011 you can still save online at present, that will provide caribbean winds underneath the Christmas tree!
