Richard Mille | Les voiles de St Barth


Richard Mille presents the RM 60-01 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Les Voiles de St Barth, a new 80 limited pieces edition, a proof of its long-term commitment to one of the world’s leading regattas, through thick and thin.

Back in April 2020, it was initially hoped that the 2021 edition of Les Voiles would go ahead in St. Barts. New conditions for entering and leaving the island together with quarantine and obligatory reasons for travel unfortunately made such an international event logistically impossible even this year.

With no event in 2021, Richard Mille has decided to donate all the proceeds of the sale of an RM 60-01 to local causes in St. Barts. The brand is in talks with the authorities to decide together which projects could benefit from thes funs, whether it be for local health facilities or environmental projects.

Veering from serene to extreme, Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille has always stood out as a state-of-the-art rendez-vous for top-notch competitiveness and record-breaking technology. The brand was there right from the start in 2010. Over its first decade the competition welcomed tens of thousands of sailors and close to 500 boats from the four corners of the world – on average 80 crews competing in seven classes each edition – swiftly imposing itself as one of the highlights of the Caribbean season. The heady mix of extreme conditions makes this event truly unique.
