Topaz are J Class winners at Les Voiles de Saint Tropez


Topaz upheld the J Class record for Class winning success at Les Voiles de Saint Tropez when they topped out a good week with a third win in a row today to take overall victory in the seven strong IRC Class 2.

Velsheda, which had to retire from the first, breezy race earlier in the week after sustaining mainsail damage, finished second overall in the division, twice finishing second behind their long-time J Class rivals. And so, between Porto Cervo’s Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in September, where Velsheda won, 2021’s J Class honours are even.
