Lloyd Thornburg has come back to Les Voiles de Saint Barth for the first time with a monohull for 2017.
This year he has chosen to compete on a 40ft Shaun Carkeek design. This will be the second event for him on this boat, he previously raced it from St Petersburg in Florida to Havana Cuba, winning the historic race.
On board he has a couple of his Phaedo crew (Miles Seddon, Henry Bomby and Brian Sharp), but also some new faces for the team.
There is quite a few of the Team GBR Olympic family, with the medalists, Nick Rogers, Stuart Bithell and Luke Patience, alongside Finn sailor Mark Andrews.
The rest of the crew are Jesse Fielding and Martin Christensen.
