WIMCO Villas partners with Les Voiles de Saint Barth

(TRAVPR.COM) US - March 12th, 2015 - WIMCO Villas announces the continuation of its 5-year partnership with the Les Voiles de Saint Barth Regatta, held on the small French island of St Barths from April 13th to April 18th. As part of the agreement, the Regatta features WIMCO as the preferred villa rental and concierge service company for participating sailors and event sponsors.  The thirty-year old company will also donate week-long villa vacations in St. Barths to the owners of the winning boats. On top of arranging villa rentals, WIMCO uniquely provides a one-stop shop for flights, rental cars, provisions, and last minute restaurant reservations for captains, crews and sponsors.

“We love welcoming enthusiastic sailors to St.Barths for what is quickly becoming a signature event in the Caribbean regatta schedule,” says Stiles Bennet, President of WIMCO.  “Les Voiles attracts some of the most advanced 30’-60’ racing boats in the world, and with a dozen or more boats in some racing classes and a close to shore layout, the action is thrilling for both crew and spectators.”

For the second year in a row, the Regatta will stage events to raise funds to support the research of the Paris based non-profit Brain & Spine Institute (ICM). To date, the Regatta has raised nearly 70,000 to fund ICM”s efforts to find treatments for neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS, as well as to help victims of traumatic spinal cord injuries recover adequate motor function.

About Les Voiles de Saint Barth Regatta

Les Voiles de Saint Barth offers thrilling racing in windy conditions and brilliant sunshine. The race draws in close to one thousand sailors from Europe, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and from every corner of the Caribbean. Half of the boats will race in the spinnaker and non-spinnaker classes, which features single hulls especially designed for coastal racing. This is the second year that it has supported the good works of ICM. The harbor village of Gustavia, home to the post-race “regatta village”, offers live music each night, and plenty of restaurants, bars and lounges for spectators and crews.
