Congratulations to our guys over at St Barths Bucket 2014! Royal Huisman SY Unfurled came in third in Elegantes class, with our very own Steve Branagh as part of the sailing team. She was just pipped at the post in the final race by Vitters Shipyard built SY Marie who won the class.
All in all, this years bucket was a spectacular event with excellent sailing and fantastic weather conditions making for some nail biting finishes.
Scuttlebutt Sailing News Reports, 'The take-away is that I don’t know if there has ever been a better-weather Bucket than this,' said Event Director and Race Chairman Peter Craig. 'It was 15-20 knots, moderate-to-upper-end for three days, which was challenging for sailors and fabulous for spectators. Sailing to the superyacht rule can be a burden to get used to, but the level to which everyone sailed… you’d think you were at a conventional regatta.'
