Various Classes – Les Voiles de St-Barth – St-Barthélemy FRA – Day 5 – SHK Scallywag and Fujin Win the 2019 Record Trophies


The breeze freshened back up to 18-21kn yesterday at the Voiles de St-Barths, and race organizers sent the Maxi and Multihull classes on a 34-nautical mile course to battle it out for the 2019 Richard Mille Record Trophy. In the Maxi class, SHK Scallywag skippered by David Witt took line honors in 2hr 33min 53sec, and Fujin of Greg Slyngstad finished less than three minutes behind in 2hrs 36min 33sec for the Multihull Record. The CSA 1 u0096 5 fleets had two races between 12u009614nm, and while the overall podium positions are solidifying across the fleets, the results do not necessarily reflect the close competition. — Here the results, the race day 4 report, the photos of the day and the event website. — Today Saturday is the last day of racing, scheduled to begin at 10 am EST.
