PC66-2 Voile de St Tropez Sept/Oct 2018
In mid September we delivered “SULTANA” the PC 662 from Bodrum to St Tropez for the owner to participate in the Voile de St Tropez. We left Bodrum in fabulous sunshine and 25/30 knots on the beam and in the first 24 hours and did 220 miles with the staysail and 2 reefs in the main. Unfortunately the wind and sunshine were not to last and the weather for the balance of the trip to Sicily was fairy mixed. We stopped in Siracusa (beautiful town and friendly people) and then did the trip up to NE Sardinia via Messina. The NE coast of Sardinia was simply stunning and we were sorry not to have more time to enjoy it but pressed onto the very glitsy St Tropez. The Owner had a very successful regatta coming 2nd in the Spirit of Tradition category and with the boat in the main St Tropez harbour she was much admired. Once the regatta finished a delivery crew bought her back to Bodurm for the winter having completed a 2500 mile round trip and taken it all her stride without issues..
