The Favorites On Top

On Thursday, the 47 teams of the 10th annual St. Barth Cata-Cup set sail on a serious note for the first day of competition, as the race committee took advantage of winds of 8 to 12 knots from the south-southeast for a first tour of the island. As a result of the conditions, it was necessary to be highly observant and show finesse in these kinds of conditions and the favorites immediately proved excellence, confirming their status. The winning trifecta of the day? In order: Iordanis Paschalidis – Konstantinos Trigkonis (Relwen), Pierre Le Clainche – Antoine Joubert (designaffairs – 001), and Franck Cammas – Matthieu Vandame (ODP 1).

 

On day one, the competitors of the St. Barth Cata-Cup were ready for the first race as planned at 2:30pm, setting off for a 20-mile sail around the island of St Barthélemy. Positioned next to the committee boat and with perfect timing, Pierre Le Clainche and Antoine Joubert (designaffairs - 001) took an early lead in the fleet. Impeccably negotiating all of the traps on the course, and especially the tricky passage around Grenadin, they led the race for quite a while, until they were overtaken in the final 100 meters by the Greek duo, Iordanis Paschalidis and Konstantinos Trigkonis (Relwen). “It’s frustrating to have been ahead for 99% of the race, and to be passed at the very end,” noted the helmsman from Vanne once back on shore. “Leading at the point of St Jean, we found ourselves between the Greeks on one side, who took advantage of a little more wind further off the coast, and on the other side the Cammas- Vandame duo who were gaining speed, but we managed to control that attack. But for the Greeks, we should have been a little more aggressive and placed ourselves between them and the finish line. We did not do enough to protect our lead, but that’s easier to say with a little hindsight,” added his teammate, a little disappointed but aware that they have already established themselves as one of the teams to beat this week. “Pierre and Antoine really sailed well and we really worked hard to stay on their heels. Finally, we closed the gap in the last lengths, with pure speed. It was a great race and the conditions were great in the end. At the start, we were a little afraid of confronting large dead zones, yet the wind remains constant throughout,” commented Iordanis Paschalidis, who won the Prix designaffairs – 001 and confirmed his presence among the serious pretenders for the title.   Some favorites luckier than others   “We are not celebrating yet as we know the competition will...
