Les Voiles de Saint Tropez has been a superlative way to close the Schooner season in the Mediterranean Sea. Seven Schooners have lined-up on the starting line to compete for the Rolex Trophy, some of which boast an overall length in excess of 50 metres, including Elena of London and Shenandoah of Sark. Other Schooners attending have been Naema, Puritan, Ashanti IV, Orianda and Viveka.
