Newport Bucket Regatta Roundup
Attended by Camper & Nicholsons, the famous, by invitation-only regatta for yachts over 27.4m (90’) was the perfect get together for some competitive fun and entertainment at the Newport Bucket Regatta.
In its 11th year, guests were entertained on the water during the annual Newport Bucket Regatta on Rhode Island from 23-25 August. The Camper & Nicholsons host yacht was the beautiful 24m (82’) new NISI 2400 motor yacht; the perfect platform for spectating the races and clients were treated to exceptional weather and perfect viewing conditions. NISI's modern design, beautiful white washed teak interior and wrap around windows provided an amazing 360 degree view of the races. Comfortable seating on the bow, back deck and fly bridge accommodated guests in luxurious style.
The annual Bucket Regatta boasts some of the largest privately owned sailing yachts in the world with an impressive schedule of yacht racing and social events. Camper & Nicholsons’ Yacht Broker Andrew LeBuhn and Senior Charter Broker Barbara Dawson shared their thoughts on the day:
“The weather was perfect, the racing was exciting and the guests were delighted. Everyone was looking forward to the event!”
“With fantastic sailing conditions and the wind holding, the event presented two great days of sailing. The race got off to a grand start with the Spinnakers set for a downwind start out of Narraganset Bay. Clients and Camper & Nicholsons brokers alike cheered on their favourites over the two great days of sailing where exquisite food and fun atmosphere were on hand to ensure the perfect event.”
