Newport Bucket Regatta 2013
22nd - 25th Aug 2013
This famous, by invitation-only regatta is open to yachts over 27.4m (90’) in length and is a great excuse for sailing yachts owners and their crews to get together for some competitive fun and entertainment.
The Newport Shipyard on Rhode Island has been the summer venue for the Bucket Regatta Series since 2002, last year celebrating its 10th anniversary. Some of the world’s most impressive sailing yachts congregate each year to participate in spirited competition and seamanship for which it is famed. The regatta will begin with daily awards handed out for the winner in each class, as well as awards for first, second, and third place. The Bucket trophy will then be presented to the overall winner on the last day.
Newport is one of the world’s most historical and prominent yachting destinations, and a must-see part of any New England itinerary. Dating back to 1639, it incorporates a rich sailing heritage with breathtaking coastlines dotted with beautiful beaches and unspoilt landscapes.
