THE F18 CLASS IS ALIVE AND WELL
Mercredi 4 Novembre 2015
As an event par excellence for both amateurs and professionals in the F18 Class, the St- Barth Cata Cup has risen to the top ranks of regattas that offer a high level of competition. Many of the world’s sailing greats have competed in the Class, including Franck Cammas, Thierry Fouchier, Darren Bundock, Billy Besson, Yvan Bourgnon, Morgan Lagravière, Jérémie Lagarrigue and Marie Riou.
The success of the F18 Class is founded on events such as this, according to James Baeckler, president of the Association Française de F18. “These regattas ensure the success and longevity of a class. Without great races, there would be no boats or happy sailors,” says Mr. Baeckler.
