It will be Mitch Booth’s first St Barth Cata Cup. Booth has an impressive track record. He has sailed on just about every type of craft and won dozens of world and national championships, in addition to two Olympic medals on Tornado in 1992 and 1996.
In 40 years of sailing, Booth has never had the opportunity to compete in the St Barth Cata Cup.
« I have been here 7 times for the Bucket Race on the super yachts and I always wish that I could sail a small boat in this beautiful water so now I get the chance for the first time », said Booth. « I am here to have fun, to have fun and to have fun and enjoy the sailing conditions and it looks like it will be a great fleet. » Mitch Booth had the choice to go to World Championships or attend the St-Barth Cata Cup and opted for St-Barth. « I have done so many World Championships in my life and this time it was about enjoying the beach cat environment. This is a unique event that I have never done before so it was an easy choice. »
As a triple world champion, Booth is no stranger to the F18. For this edition, he will be joined by Andy Dinsdale, a regular on the waters around St Barth.
