Interview with Patrick S. owner of RITUAL (First Yacht 53)

As ever, it was an amazing sight. Yet the 22nd Voiles de Saint-Tropez nearly did not take place. The event, which runs from 26 September to 9 October, brings together nearly 150 classic and modern boats the first week and about twenty Super Series maxi-yachts, in the second week. The First Yacht 53 RITUAL, competing in the IRB “Modern” category, made its racing debut. It was a good maiden run for Patrick S. its owner and skipper, a keen sailor and a huge sailing connoisseur, and we were keen to interview him.
