Among the stars of this year’s show, Galateia, a magnificent Wally 100, takes the lead. With its seamless blend of vintage design elements and modern carbon fiber performance, Galateia stands as a true work of art both under sail and on the race course. Fresh from its triumph at the 2023 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, Galateia is all set to make its debut at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta in 2024. Alongside this newcomer, Leopard3, a Farr 100, is eager to return, ready to relish the fantastic winds and waves that St. Maarten offers.
