The termSundayShowdown lived up to its name yesterday, on the final race day of the 2016 St Barths Bucket Regatta. A large swell and strong breeze made for some exciting race conditions as the impressive fleet ranging from fast high speed to large performance cruisers circled the island on the longest stage of the regatta. The Breed Media team captured these stunning images yesterday.
The new Vitters sailing yacht Unfurled made up for her disappointing fourth place finish inSaturday, to not only cross the line first in the final race, but came out on top in Class A, ahead of Nilaya and Visione. Out of the big ladies, it was the regatta-ready Rosehearty that proved to be the fastest across the three days of racing in Class E, outrunning Ohana and Seahawk.
Having fallen behind Ganesha on day one, the regatta regular Perini P2 claimed top spots in the two final races, earning her the overall the victory in the competitive Class B, with Wisp finishing in third overall.
