Benoît de Froidmont and Arnaud Jerald, two Exceptional Patrons

For the 11 th edition, which is right around the corner, two exceptional patrons will represent the regatta: Benoît de Froidmont, president of the International Maxi Association (IMA) and Arnaud Jerald, a French free-diver and four-time world record holder for CWTB in the bi-fins category, world champion in the same sport, and Richard Mille watch partner.

“Sailing and freediving are synonymous with high performance, pushing oneself, humility, and solidarity. In this sense, it’s an honor for me to be a patron of Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille this year,” confirms Arnaud Jerald, French free-diver who holds four world records as well as the world champion title with a record-breaking dive of 117 meters in July 2021.

“Sailing is a sport that is still evolving, especially with foils that allow boats to fly. I am glad to have the opportunity to learn more. I sailed when I was younger and like the thrills associated with the sport. I will be able to glean precious information in talking with the pros. Sailing and freediving are both sports that value experience and I think I will learn a lot during this event.”

“It is an honor to be a patron for this 11 th edition, and to follow the remarkable people who have filled this role since 2010. I am proud to represent the IMA. Our association always strives to support the best sports events, especially in the Caribbean. Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille is without doubt one of the leading regattas in this part of the world, and which attracts a large number of Maxis,” notes Benoît de Froidmont.
