Change of atmosphere in Gustavia with the West Indies Regatta. The style is different from the Voiles de Saint-Barth, it is festive in the Caribbean tradition. Last week, they were technological jewels, these are boats, Caribbean wooden ships often very colourful.
About fifteen traditional ships were at the main wharf for this eleventh edition. The West Indies Regatta is above all about promoting the Caribbean lifestyle, allowing participants to promote local products, which is why there was a local market organized every day so that they could sell their cargoes of fruit, chocolates, jewellery etc….
In the evening, it is also an atmosphere and music on the quays. We at Destination Saint Barths love it, so of course we sent our photographer Alexandre Peter to make a short report that we share with you.
