The 25,80 metre Feadship motor yacht SULTANA has just completed a major rebuild by Feadship. The SULTANA yacht was launched as Din-Dina in 1969 and found abandoned in a French yard in 2007 by Dutch sailor Kees van den Hoek. The hull of the DIN DINA yacht was initially brought to the northern Dutch port of Enkhuizen to be painted and prepared for outfitting. One of Feadship’s senior in-house historians Huib de Vries was invited by the owner to lead the christening ceremony. Certainly many competitors could not remember a prior Les Voiles that didn’t feature at least one day of big breeze or a mistral. Trophies and prizes were award to all of the modern and traditional classes in the 300+ fleet.
Commenting on Avel’s win, Allegra Gucci said, “It’s absolutely fantastic, especially because it doesn’t happen very often that a gaff boat wins the overall.
One key ingredient to a successful racing boat, of any era, are the sails, considered the engine that drives the boat. Another sultry day on the French Riviera as racing concluded for the week at Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez 2011. The Rolex Trophy is awarded to the low point winner from the Tradition division boats that are more than 16 metres (length on deck). Sailing yacht Avel raced in the 13-boat Epoque Aurique B class with other boats of near the same vintage including Nan of Fife and Veronique. Second to Avel for the Rolex Trophy was Mariska, which won her class (15 Metre), with a score of 2-1-1. The season-ending Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is one of the bigger regattas in the Mediterranean – and certainly one of the most diverse in terms of type of fleet. To determine which boats race in what division, the duty falls to Roger Gibert and Renaud Godard, CIM measurers. The prizegiving for Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez will takes place on Sunday 3 October at 11am at La Citadelle, the 16th century fortress overlooking the Golfe de Saint-Tropez.
Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is notable for the diverse fleet of boats and superyachts that turn up each September on the Cote d’Azur for a week of racing. The Tradition fleet is made up of 130 boats spread across several classes including: the 15 Meter class, Grand Epoque, Epoque Marconi, Epoque Aurique, Classique Marconi, and the diminutive Tofinou, the modern French-built day-sailer. For the Tradition class, boats must be built prior to 1975, though most of them are quite a bit older. Since 2006, a special award – The Rolex Trophy – has been presented for traditional boats 16 metres and longer on deck. Today’s racing was postponed for several hours as competitors waited for wind – a familiar circumstance this week as a high pressure over southern Europe has produced unusually benign sailing conditions, not typical for a time of year that often sees the mistral.
Leading overall for the Rolex Trophy after two days of racing (through Thursday) – theoretically the halfway mark in the regatta – were Avel and the two-time prior Rolex Trophy winner, Rowdy. Sailing yacht Avel, named after a wind found in Brittany, is striking for her clipper bow and varnished sheerstrake. The boats standing at the top of the Rolex Trophy leaderboard showcase the range of design and periods of classic yachts on display here. Stormy Weather is a 54-foot Sparkman & Stephens-designed yawl built in 1934, at the Nevins yard in New York.
Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez is a treasure trove of yachts, some more than one hundred years old, others from more recent eras, many impeccably restored, while others are waiting to be — but all appreciated and enjoyed by the sailors and enthusiasts who gather in the old port to keep the spirit of the past thirty years alive.
Midweek in St Tropez is traditionally a layday for the modern fleet, and sort of a busman’s holiday for the classic fleet.
Following tradition, the Club 55 Cup race course had a start off St Tropez, from the Tour du Portalet, around La Nioulargue buoy to the finish line off Club 55 on the beach in Pampelonne.
Racing along with the pair from the “big boat” fleet was the 12metre Ikra, one of the two competitors from the original match race that started La Nioulargue, the predecessor to Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez back in the fall of 1981. Pride was scheduled to be in St Tropez for the 30th anniversary from its new homeport in Sicily, Italy, but was cancelled due to weather. Bill Jayson, reflecting on his father’s participation said, “Age took its measure and he really was not able to sail competitively anymore, so he stopped.
For other boats, both modern and traditional, about a dozen individual challenges were made, with the planned course 6.5 nautical miles. Getty owns the impeccable 100-foot motor yacht, Blue Bird, a classic beauty, and he clearly has an eye and appreciation for period yachts. No stranger to Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, Getty raced every year on boats he chartered with friends. Having only taken delivery of Skylark in June, Getty and family spent July and August cruising in Corsica with Blue Bird and enjoying day sailing on his new S&S yawl. Given that this is Skylark’s first regatta this year, the results seem less important than the joy in finding such a gem, Getty adds, “We have a really strong crew and none of us are really professionals: friends, and friends of friends, and my family.
New this year was the Centenary Trophy, a race for traditional boats over one hundred years old (built prior to 29 October 1911), hosted by the Gstaad Yacht Club.

We have crewed charter boats in the favourite yachting hotspots in the Mediterranean and Caribbean as well as worldwide locations. The classic yacht SULTANA (ex Din Dina, Hull #598) has now been restored to her former glory and will soon be available for luxury yacht charters in the Mediterranean.
Despite being in a poor condition with an almost empty hull, this experienced yachtsman fell in love with her classic lines, which are so typical of a Feadship. An agreement was then reached for Feadship to provide its dedicated service and knowledge to finish the rebuild at the Feadship yard in Makkum.
Another couple of months were then required to fine-tune and test the new engine room and bridge equipment, which highlight the constant search for perfection at Feadship.
For more than one week straight, unseasonably hot weather has dominated the region, caused by a high pressure system that seemingly stalled over the northern Mediterranean.
But the modern classes managed to finally get two races in during the week, the Wally class five, and the traditional classes sailed three completed races.
Highlight in the Traditional division was the Rolex Trophy, awarded to the low point winner from the Tradition classes that are more than 16 metres (length on deck).
Agneta’s beautiful varnished mahogany hull and tanbark sails are unmistakable on the water. Designed by the renowned naval architecture firm, Sparkman & Stephens and built in Hong Kong in 1937. The regatta, organized by the Societe Nautique de Saint-Tropez (SNST), is part of the Rolex Yachting portfolio that includes over twenty world-class sailing events that take place around the world. For the 300 or more boats at this year’s edition, no amount of wind dances or prayers could conjure up enough breeze for a final day of racing. With a scoreline of 1-1-1, the 75-foot gaff cutter Avel won their class (Epoque Aurique), as well as the Rolex Trophy, which will be awarded – with a Rolex timepiece – at tomorrow’s prizegiving at La Citadelle. Despite her 100+ year age and gaff sail plan, Avel’s wine-glass shaped underbody is well-suited for the light air that was predominant this week. The Italian sisters have sailed onboard since it was re-launched in 1996, following a complete restoration. Built in 1908 and owned by Christian Niels, it is one of three 15 Metre class yachts racing at Les Voiles.
For the modern fleet, the boats are rated under IRC, while the tradition class follows the CIM (Comite International de la Mediterranee) rule, and as the regatta is based in France, is run under the auspices of L’Association Francaise des Yachts de Tradition. Loosely translated the epoque boats are the older, vintage boats, while the “classique” are the based on classic designs.
This year there are 51 yachts in this group, and the Trophy is awarded to the overall low point scorer. The modern fleet finally got their first race – for the week, while the tradition fleet also got a late start and again a shortened course, as once clear of the gulf the breeze died off. The gaff cutter measures 57 feet on deck, and with her long, graceful overhangs, stretches to 75 feet overall. Launched five years after the famous Dorade, which was the first design from the young Olin Stephens’ hand, Stormy Weather had a long and successful yacht-racing career capped with wins early on in the Transatlantic Race, the Fastnet Race, and the Bermuda Race. Challenge Day has one ‘featured’ race of the day, and a host of other informal challenges were struck for match races between competitors, solely for bragging rights.  This year, the Club 55 Cup match was between 2 superyachts designed by William Fife III – the 140-foot 19 Metre Class, sailing yacht Mariquita and the 128-foot gaff schooner Altair. After finishing, the crews transfer to the beachside restaurant for lunch, with the losing skipper hosting the drinks.
Fortunately, family reinforcements were on hand: son Bill Jayson and his wife, Anne, were in St Tropez to represent the elder Jayson.
But we have great memories of sailing here with my dad, and the way he made friends with the people here.
One pair, which showcased the famous American design firm, Sparkman & Stephens, was the match between the yawl-rigs Skylark, 53 feet, and Argyll, 57 feet. Fortunately, its’ pedigree – a near sister-ship to the well-known Stormy Weather – and condition warranted attention and ultimately an American owner invested the resources to ensure a thorough refit by classic yacht restoration specialists, LMI Newport and East Passage Boatwrights. Blue Bird was built in 1938 for Sir Malcolm Campbell, an English racing motorist who held the world speed record on land and on water during the 1920s and 1930s using vehicles called Blue Bird.  For the match against Argyll, Getty put up the Blue Bird Cup, a striking sterling silver trophy that was awarded to Campbell in 1938 for setting a land speed record. Meanwhile, he kept looking for a suitable sailing yacht, one from an era similar to Blue Bird. He said, “For me, she’s a perfect size, because if she’s too small, I can’t really have crew living on her comfortably, and if she’s too big she becomes too much of a hassle to sail – like the big gaffers who needs lots of crew. While Skylark led most of the way around the course, Rhys Jones and his crew on Argyll picked the shifts well, managing to sail into more breeze on the last leg and finished in front of Argyll to win the Blue Bird Cup.
With the very light southeasterly breeze over the gulf of St Tropez, the course was eventually shortened, with 15 boats managing to finish.

The extensive rebuild project was carried out by the dedicated Feadship refit department in close cooperation with the owner’s team. The Sultana motor yacht is now on her way to a new life in the Mediterranean as a luxury charter yacht where she will offer charter guests the chance to enjoy the unrivalled Feadship standards of cruising. The sail loft in Cowes has been in existence since 1790, and has constructed sails for a ‘whos who’ of classic and traditional yachts. Rolex is the title sponsor of mythic races such as the upcoming Rolex Middle Sea Race, the Rolex Sydney Hobart and the legendary Rolex Fastnet Race.
While both Tradition and Modern sailing yachts managed to get a race started, in the end, only the smaller modern boat classes were able to finish. Allegra was at the helm of Avel when the boat finished first in the feeder race last week from Cannes to St Tropez.
We had a bad start today, but we came up through our class and got to La Mouette buoy, and were first in our class at that stage – between the rest of our class and the finish line.
Austin describes the boat as it was found, “She had sat there since between the wars.  We found her, dug her out and restored her (from 1992-4).


Mariska underwent a full restoration, was relaunched in 2009 and has been having a successful run ever since. So, the Tradition class includes all yachts launched prior to December 31, 1975, and built of wood or metal. All manner of sail plans and rig designs are seen across the fleet represented by “aurique” which is gaff-rigged, “Marconi” which denotes a Bermuda-rig, with a triangular mainsail and a jib. Many boats in both modern and traditional classes retired, when faced with not making the time limit. Truly from another era, she was originally built in 1896, commissioned by Frenchman Rene Calame to a design by Charles Nicholson, and built at the Camper & Nicholson yard in Gosport, UK.
The teak and mahogany 73-foot Bermuda ketch was the last sailboat built by Vincenzo Beltrami, at the prestigious shipyard Cantiere San Germani. At the time of her launching and subsequent successes, she impressed sailors including noted English boat designer, Uffa Fox, whose comments then could echo true today, “Stormy Weather is one of Olin Stephen’s favourite designs and her lines show her to be beamy and powerful, yet very easily driven, and therefore fast. On Sunday, the final Prize-giving ceremony will be held at La Citadelle, the 16th century fortress overlooking the Golfe de Saint-Tropez.
The boat and enthusiastic skipper competed right through 1995, and even returned for the 20th reunion in 2001. As were Patrick Almere and Sebastian Le Ber, President of the nearby Yacht Club de Porquerolles, and both local sailors who were part of the original Pride crew. Patrice de Colmont (from Club 55) was really the person that got things going after the first race.
Both are great examples of Olin Stephens impeccable eye: Skylark (1937), is owned by Tara Getty, and Argyll (1948) by the Welsh comedian and actor, Griff Rhys Jones.
He searched for two to three years, almost buying another boat that wasn’t quite right, post-war versus pre-war.
This is our first event this year and it’s wonderful to finally be doing it on your own boat, even though Skylark is not very big compared to some of the boats we’ve been sailing on. Placing first overall was the 44-foot Bonafide, a “5 tonner” class originally built in 1899, then rebuilt and relaunched in 2003.
First awarded in 2006, this year over 50 boats are eligible.  The winner from 2010, Yves-Marie Morault, on the 12-metre Ikra, is back to defend. On Sunday the final Prizgiving ceremony will be held at La Citadelle, the 16th century fortress overlooking the Golfe de Saint-Tropez.
With the support of a businessman who was interested in owning the yacht, the hull was made sufficiently seaworthy to return her to Holland on her own keel, propelled by the original Gardner engines. With Feadship standards fully in mind, a way was found to finish the classic motor yacht Sultana within a budget that was appropriate for a boat of this age and inherent value.
Again today, not a cloud could be found from the vantage point of La Citadelle, the 16th century fortress overlooking the village and old port of St Tropez, and the site of the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez prize giving midday today. Mike Ratsey, Ratsey’s “man in the Med”, who races on Avel said, “We’re still racing with the original Dacron mainsail that was built when the boat was relaunched in 1994. For the Tradition fleet, with a bit of deja vu for the week, after a few hours of the fleet struggling to get upwind, the decision was made to abandon racing for the day. For Les Voiles, skipper Chris Austin was helming, while Allegra was on the bow, and Alessandra on the mainsail. All others from 1976 forward, including all yachts built of fiberglass, carbon fibre or other materials, race in the Modern division. The 2010 winner, Yves-Marie Morault, on the 12-metre Ikra, is back with his crew, including tactician former America’s Cup sailor Sebastien Destremau, to defend the title. In 1990, she was discovered in a river in southeast England, neglected and in dire need of attention.
She was built in 1916, one of twelve of these one-designs ordered by the New York Yacht Club. White Dolphin has sailed in many of the classic yacht races in the Mediterranean, but it is also extremely comfortable and well suited for the extended cruising that she was designed to enjoy. Eventually, the family sold the boat about six years ago, and Jayson is now in his late 80s. They thought ‘this was so much fun, let’s invite some more boats… and then we’ll invite some more boats’, and it just keep getting bigger and bigger. This is her first time in Europe, so it must be causing a bit of interest because it’s another Sparkman & Stephens come over (from the US), very similar to Stormy Weather, Dorade, and Sonny…the famous ones. SHANTI crossed the Atlantic and spent few months in the Caribbean and later returned to the Mediterranean. This in itself was an adventure and generated considerable coverage on YouTube and the online yachting community. We’re always thinking how can we make Avel that bit faster and every year, from the previous year, we think if we do this and do that we’ll get a bit more speed. Clearly delighted with the win, Allegra said, “It was very difficult, with such light winds, but we have an excellent crew. I mean she’s so original – the interior is 85%, the hull is 85% original, so it was really good to find her…she’s a gem, a rarity! An Italian purchased Avel and brought her to Harry Spencer’s boatyard in Cowes for, what was, a four-year restoration.
Philippe Schaeffer, Director of Rolex France awarded Allegra and Alessandra Gucci, sisters who own and race on Avel, the Rolex Trophy and a Rolex Submariner timepiece. This year has been exceptional, it’s been Avel’s weather: we like some wind, for us 8-10 knots and flat water is perfect conditions. It’s just the way she is – she’s quite a tender boat.” The win at Les Voiles proved to be a great ending for the season for Avel, which is kept in Palma de Mallorca, and will return there this week to be decommissioned for the winter.
