Voile d’Antibes 2015 – 1st Prize!

The Encounter's first participation at the Voile d'Antibes was a succes, taking home the 1st prize in her class. The crew, all Dutch, fully enjoyed this very nice event in June and is looking forward to repeat performance in Mahon (Menorca)

The light air conditions obviously suited the Encounter. Panerai is the main sponsor of the event and we look forward to being back next year.

Voile de Saint Tropez 2014

Les Voiles de St Tropez is an amazing rendezvous of yachts. First run twenty-six years ago as La Nioulargue, the regatta gathers together the most extraordinary modern sailing boats alongside the most beautiful traditional yachts in the early autumn. A host of racers and sailing enthusiasts come from all the corners of the globe to do battle in the bay of Saint-Tropez.

St Tropez is located on the French Riviera near to Cannes and Marseille and is famous for its millionaires as well as being where Brigitte Bardot was discovered. It’s a beautiful part of the world and  the regatta is somewhat of an eye opener with the multitude of prestigious super yachts both power and sail around as well as the awesome classics here for the regatta.

Coupe d’Automne 2013

Better known as the "Feeder Race" after Regattes Royale in Cannes. This race takes the yachts to St. Tropez where they will compete in the 'Voile de St. Tropez'. Encounter participated first time in 2012 when she finisched third in class. In 2013 and 2014 she finisched as the winner in her class!
