Saint-Barthelemy, November 20, 2014 – The first day was somewhat challenging for the racers who had to face headwinds of 15 to 20 knots and 2 meter-high waves. While some teams prefered to skip the race due to the heavy conditions, others 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.

ODP, winner of the first race day

The winner of Design Affairs Prize is Franck Cammas and teammate Matthieu Vandame (ODP), followed by Morgan Lagravière and Arnaud Jarlegan (Architectonik). USA’s Mike Easton and Matthew Whitehead, who are both newcomers at the St-Barth Cata Cup, impressed with a 3rd place finish.
