Fountaine Pajot meeting in the Caribbean

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

At the end of last November more than 150 participants met up aboard 18 catamarans built by the La Rochelle-based company, for sharing some good sailing between the islands of St. Martin and St. Barts. Catamarans from every generation took part, as in addition to almost the whole of the current range (from the Mahé Evolution to the Victoria 67). We were also pleased to see the return of a few of the company’s renowned boats, such as the Athena, Venezia, Belize and even the Casamance.
Although the crews had of course come to party (which they didn’t fail to do), it was also important to try to not come last in the races. The first was raced in two legs, between Grand Case and the Anse Marcel, passing via Sandy Island. The second race took the catamarans from the small island of Pinel to the Anse Colombier on St. Barts.
Just for the record, the Salina 48 skippered by Claire Fountaine won the first race, ahead of the Victoria 67 sailed by Donald Harper and Pierre Pageot’s Athena 38. The second race saw a victory by Serge Rivas in a Lipari 41, ahead of Donald Harper’s inevitable Victoria 67, and the venerable Venezia 42 skippered by Gilles Tirbois.
