St Barth Backet 2013 by Onne van der Wal
The Perini Navi Group sponsors the St Barths Bucket Regatta 2014
The Viareggio based shipyard will be the best represented at the regatta having the largest number of their own builds in the fleet. Two of their latest yachts will be present putting the latest Perini innovations in terms of design and technology to the test.
Seahawk, the first yacht in the Perini 60m series with her sleek hull lines and new generation Perini Navi captive reel winches and furlers, and State of Grace, the first yacht in the new performance 40m Fast Cruising series.
There will be thirty eights yachts total in the fleet that will be racing in the waters around St Barth. The fleet will be divided into four categories: les Gazelles des Mers, les Grandes Dames des Mers, Les Mademoiselle des Mers and les Elegantes des Mers.
Perini Navi yachts present will be Seahawk, Zenji, Clan VIII, State of Grace, Parsifall III, Silencio and Andromeda la Dea. All of these will be racing in the Grandes Dames Class. The highest placed Perini Navi build will be awarded, this year just like in the past, with the Perini Navi Trophy.
This eagerly anticipated regatta also includes an intense programme of side events. The first will be the Superyacht Racing Association’s Annual Meeting on March 26th. Other social events will be held throughout the regatta up until the final prize giving that will be held on March 30th.
