NORTH SAILS POWER HETAIROS TO OVERALL VICTORY IN ST BARTHS
Three Days of Racing Delivers Scoreboard Success
Winning North inventories filled in 12 of 18 podium positions, including the overall winner of the St Barths Bucket. Thirty-four yachts and 1500 sailors competed in the 2019 edition of the Bucket, an event known for its competitive, but Corinthian spirit.
Hetairos, the 67m Dykstra R/P bested her fleet and was also crowned 2019 overall champion. With three races in three days, North Sails clients found success across multiple classes. In addition to Hetairos, North sails outfitted Class B winner Sojana as well as crowding the podium across Class C, Class D, Class E and the dedicated Corinthian, non-spinnaker Class F.
Each year since 1995, St Barths plays host to the by-invitation superyacht regatta. This event is an opportunity for boat owners, their friends and a collection of highly accomplished sailors to enjoy this annual tradition. For this edition of the race, North Sails worked with world-renowned sailing photographer Carlo Borlenghi to capture sailing during the day and our pop-up service loft at night. Below is a selection of our favorite imagery from St Barths, which captures the spirit for this truly unique, Corinthian superyacht regatta.
