Seventy teams will race on 27 different course choices with distances ranging from 10 to 42 miles in the 2015 edition of Les Voiles De Saint Barth, starting April 14th. Headlining is a first-time matchup between the newest break-through speed machines, Comanche and Rambler 88. A balance of eight other Maxis between 63 and 90 feet in length with highly recognizable names such as Bella Mente, Lucky, Odin, Lupa of London, Selene, and Aragon makes this the most formidable Maxi Division that has shown up here since the regatta's inception six years ago. Extremely tight competition also can be found in five Spinnaker Division classes as well as in classes for Racing Multihull, Non-Spinnaker and Melges 24 one-designs. Forerunners in these classes will no doubt distinguish themselves before the Lay Day on Thursday (April 16), if not sooner. The second half of racing for Les Voiles de St. Barth resumes on Friday and Saturday, April 17th and 18th, for a total of four racing days.
