Perini Navi, Royal Huisman,Vitters and Rybovich announce their stewardship of the St. Barths and Newport Bucket Regattas.
The new owners have issued the following statement: “As the new custodians of the St. Barths and Newport Bucket Regattas, we cannot emphasize enough that our sole objective in taking this initiative is to ensure that the special character of the Bucket is preserved for owners, their guests and crew, now and well into the future. The Buckets will continue to be an opportunity for great racing in great venues, where socialising and networking, rather than sales and marketing, will set the tone for the industry professionals who participate. Furthermore, wherever practical, owners’ aspirations, ideas and concerns will be at the very heart of decision-making regarding any changes to the format, organisation and evolution of the Bucket Regattas over the years to come.”
Peter Craig comments “It has been a pleasure managing these renowned events on behalf of the Bucket Directors these past four years. I am honored that the new stewards of the event have expressed their confidence in my team at Premiere Racing. The Bucket Regattas are in a good place, based on feedback from yacht owners and we are fully committed to the goals and objectives that the new ownership has outlined.”
