Saint-Barth Cata-Cup du 14 au 18 Novembre 2012
Fifth Edition of the Fun Regatta
For the fifth edition of the Saint Barth Cata Cup, it was necessary to “push back the walls.” The number of boats had been limited to 50, but due to the growing reputation of the most “fun” regatta on the Formula 18 circuit, the organizers accepted seven more. The tropical setting, the crystal clear water, the ambiance, and the racing conditions attract participants from all over the world.
Among the most well-know of these racers, the roster once again includes Dutchman Mischa Heemskerk, fourth in the last F18 world championships and World Champion of Class A, as well as Carolijn Brouwer, Mixed Team World Champion 2012 and also from The Netherlands, American John Casey, Enrique Figueroa from Puerto Rico, and Greek world champion in the Tornado class, Iordanis Paschalidis.
There will also be an armada of French champions ranging from Yvan Bourgnon, Kinou Mourniac, and Manu Boulogne to Fred Moreau and Gurvan Bontemps.The St Barth Cata Cup would not be such a big success without the participation of these internationally acclaimed racers, who come to Saint Barth from at least a dozen different countries to compete.
