A great victory for the J/99, King of Blue at Les Voiles de Saint Tropez.
The mixture of classic yachts with ultra-modern boats is the main characteristic of Les Voiles as its true “trademark”. Organized over a week, from September 30 to October 8, this event offered to all participants a beautiful sailing cup in an exceptional environment.
After 4 races covered in rather changeable weather, between beautiful weather with a light wind and more difficult weather with strong winds, King of Blue, a J/99 finished 1st in the general IRC E (1st on the races 1, 2, 4 and 2nd on the n ° 3).
We’ve met Pascal, owner of King of Blue:
“We are very happy with our races during the VST. This year has been very special for us. We bought the J/99 beginning of the year before the Covid 19 crisis and we were only able to sail on board in regattas from the spring, during the Sémac trophy, where we’ve finished 3rd overall! It is with great pleasure that we’ve participated in this new edition of VST. During the various coastal round, we were around 3rd or 4th on the downwind tacks and 1st on the upwind tacks. King of Blue, the J/99 is a real bomb! We were all delighted to sail on board! You really have to try it to realize.”
