Regularity paid off for the Belgians Patrick Demesmaeker and Olivier Gagliani, who flirted with the top 5 throughout the event. «After 7 editions here, the time was right. We are very happy!», said Olivier Gagliani. «There is a high level of competition at the Cata Cup and it’s always fun to race against sailors that we have know for years, especially in these exceptional conditions.»
The final day concluded with a race taking the contestants to Public Beach. It was tight right up until the end as the Belgians had a very small margin to win in the overall rankings. Had crew Orion Martin and Charles Gaté scored 1 and Belgians 4, the French would have won the St-Barth Cata Cup.
