Detaille Sponsor of "Trophée du Bailli de Suffren"

The Mediterranean’s most beautiful yacht race is also its longest race for classic yachts. Now in its 13th edition, the Trophée Bailli du Suffren is run over three legs:

The event takes its name as well as its start and finish locations from the 18th century French admiral, Pierre André de Suffren de Saint-Tropez, who spent his early career in Malta where he received the title of "Bailli de Suffren" from the Knights of St John.

Known among his sailors and his enemies (most notably the British) as "Admiral Satan", this formidable seafarer enjoys a reputation in his native France that is comparable to Horatio Nelson's in Britain. His statue stands on the quay in Saint-Tropez.

 

All yachts can compete for the overall prize - the Sword of Honour of Admiral Satan.

Amadour wins 2014 Trophée Bailli de Suffren by slenderest of margins

by Sean Purdy, 9th Jul 2014

The overall winner of the 2014 Trophée Bailli de Suffren, and the new holder of the "Sword of Admiral Satan" is the 1938 cutter Amadour.

After 134 hours of racing - across 600 miles of the Mediterranean, over three legs between Saint-Tropez and Malta - this year's event saw Tom Van Der Bruggen's Amadour triumph over last year's winner Lelantina by the narrowest of margins.

Most of the 600 miles from Saint-Tropez have been to windward into a light to moderate south easterly, with the exception being a vigorous Mistral that blew the fleet into Sardinia's Porto Rotondo at the end of leg one.
In the unique spirit of the Trophée Bailli de Suffren, however, the hardships at sea were amply compensated by the hospitality ashore, with each harbour providing a warm welcome and prize-giving dinner for each leg - culminating in tonight's awards ceremony at the Malta Maritime Museum.
