Daniel Forster, Juerg Kaufmann and I just finished a coffeetable book on Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez. It is a 142-page book with the best of Daniel and Juerg's photos of classic, spirit of tradition and modern yachts at the regatta. The weather was perfect, the collection of boats was spectacular, the setting unbeatable and the characters that we met in producing Classic & Modern Yachts in Saint-Tropez were unforgettable.

This year was my first time at the event. There weren't many North Americans there, but if they take a look at the preview of the book on regattabook.com or they purchase the book, they will have to put attending the regatta on their list of must do's during their lifetime. It is a "must attend" event for Mediterranean sailors and for thousands of their friends. Over 115 classic yachts and 150 IRC boats - Wallys, Swans, Benneteaus - all immaculately kept, participated. We did our best to produce a timeless book about beautiful boats in a very special setting.
Friendly Tropéziens and international sailors recounted stories of La Nioulargue and Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez over the week. Some even added new chapters to the regatta's history. Their stories complement the local flavor, the landmarks, the fun-loving activities of the community and the annual sailing spectacle that celebrates the end of the summer in the Mediterranean. In Classic & Modern Yachts in Saint-Tropez Lynn Fitzpatrick, Daniel Forster and Juerg Kaufmann combine breathtaking photos and short stories to capture the essence of Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez.
"Classic and Modern Yachts in Saint-Tropez packages the memories of the summer of 2009, many editions of Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez and La Nioulargue, sailboats, designs, meetings, parties, regattas, restorations, new builds and family histories. It is more than enough to warm you during the coldest, greyest days of winter." - George Nicholson
