Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille
Comanche is back!
The Super Maxi, Comanche, will make a big splash when returning to St Barth in April 2022. Designed by Guillaume Verdier and VPLP Design, this 100′ Maxi with a beam of 8 meters is one of the largest single-hull racing sailboats in the world and has pushed the limits of technology with only one goal in mind: be first on the finish line and break records.
With Australian skipper Mitch Booth, Comanche recently pulverized the record at the 8th edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race, speeding across the ocean in just 7 days, 22 hours, 1 minute, 4 seconds (the former record held by the 130′ Maxi, My Song, was 10 days, 5 hours, 47 minutes, 11 seconds).
Comanche has not sailed in Saint Barth since 2016… but there is no doubt the competition will be stiff during Les Voiles, April 17-23, 2022.
