St Barth Catacup 2013 for Cammas-Vandame



St Barth Catacup has become a 'boutique' event but also a place of high performance racing with some of the World top sailors travelling each year. 2013 was for Franck Cammas & Matthieu Vandame. Cammas is without a doubt the most complete and accomplished Multihull sailor. From round the World records on giant Tris to C-Class, Flying Phantom to A-Cup and F18 racing. He is just missing racing A-Class... Someone must invite him to New Zealand.


At St Barth and beyond his talent he was lucky enough to race with Matthieu Vandame (former F18 World Champ) to take the crown over Bundock-van Leeuwen and the Boulogne bros. 

18knots for the last day and 2 bullets for Bundock-van Leeuwen that weren't enough to block Franck & Matthieu.

Boulogne's Cirrus R had an excellent year, with two of their boats leading at Grosseto F18 Worlds till the final day, various trophies with Bontemps-Amiot and now a nice year's end at St Barth. Being following their progress from years, since their early days back in 2003 and I'm more than happy on their success with R and them supporting back csn. For your  R contact Anne Boulogne at http://www.bcm-catamaran.com/contact.php

The guys at St Barth have organized another perfect event. But hey! They don´t have any excuses to fail though! But seriously, the amount of information, pics & videos was superior to any recent Worlds event. Great effort from the org and of course having Pierrick Contin taking images & Manu Duclos filming it is a major plus. Contact them at pierrickcontin.fr & easyridevideos.com
