Salona racing team 3rd place at Les Voiles St BArths.

Miami, Fl – April 20, 214 - Gustavia, St Barths. Tough conditions on this year edition of Les Voiles regatta, with epic 10 foot waves and strong winds the Salona Racing Team ends up in 3rd position. The conditions took their toll on some competitors equipment and produced several blown-out spinnakers and sails. Even in the protected area where the Melges 24s were sailing, it was déjà vu for Frits Bus as his Island Water World lost its mast and, just like last year. The Salona 44 had an impeccable performance battling the huge waves demonstrating once again that is a tough build boat.

Guests at the show who want to get a closer look at the Salona 44 are sure to be impressed, as this ship bumps technology, design, comfort and reliability to the next level, and its stunning looks can make any owner proud. Crew comfort and safety are ensured by its ergonomically designed layouts. These functionally elegant spaces are tailor-made for pleasant family cruising or the highest levels of performance on IRC, ORC and PHRF class regattas.

“Les Voiles 2014 was a very challenging regatta . It was amazing to experience the Salona 44 surf the 8 foot atlantic waves at 18 knots” said Guillermo, Salona’s skipper.

For this regatta we have the help of our sail maker Zach Manson from North Sails, and a team of Sailors from Argentina and Puerto Rico.
