On 8th April, 2013 the 4th edition of the Voiles de Saint Barth will take sail, being a major event in Caribbean yacht racing. Inaugurated in 2010, the Voiles de Saint Barth regatta has continued to become globally renowned  and now attracts sailors from around the world for its noble, technically challenging courses and energy driven atmosphere. Richard Mille, the race's principal partner from its origin, will undoubtedly continue their partnership and are proud to foster its relationship with one of the world's finest nautical events.

Sailing is increasingly becoming one of Richard Mille's most popular affiliated sports, as a handful of exceptional timepieces would reflect: the RM 014 and RM 015 Perini Navi sailing watches, as well as the RM 025 Tourbillon Chronograph, the RM 028 Automatic, the RM 028 Voiles de Saint Barth or the RM 032 Flyback Chronograph diver's watches.

The event already has more than fifty yachts from six different classes registered for the race. The "Racing” Spinnaker category has successfully attracted several prominent names such as, Patrick Demarchelier (Puffy Swan 53) to Raphael Magras (Mae-Lia), Jean-Pierre Dick (JP 54), and Gideon Messink (Satori). Meanwhile in the "Maxi” class, Peter Harrison’s giant ketch Sojana, will take on Jean-Philippe Pinatel’s Med Spirit and Idea of London, a 78-foot super-yacht.

For the very first time, the Voiles de Saint will see sailing enthusiast Peter Harrison, CEO of Richard Mille participate with his Jolt 2 custom made racing yacht, designed by Reichel Pugh of San Diego. He will be racing in both the Spinnaker categories.

The winner of the event will receive the Richard Mille RM 028 Titanuim diver's watch.  By a meticulous incorporation of elements from a traditional diver’s watch to its signature skeletonized construct, Richard Mille’s new RM 028 was able to meet the stringent ISO 6425 standard for diver’s watch. Measured at 47 mm in diameter, the RM 028 is water resistant to 300 meters, thanks to an assembly of triple bezel and 22 screws.

Driven by a skeletonized automatic movement with a variable geometry rotor, one that alters winding function to the user’s activity and a design uniquely Richard Mille’s. Quipped with a vibrant yellow rubber band, as well as matching crown and bezel indexes, the very first Richard Mille RM 028 Voiles de Saint Barth was presented to skipper George David for the best overall performance in the Maxi Yachts class last year. He said, "This watch is intended to be worn in and around the water. I like that you can really see the dial at night. It has great luminescence.” The RM 028 has an elegant price of USD 93,000.
