This year four Hoek designed yachts joined the St.Barths Bucket Regatta and on three of the yachts our team was part of the race crew.
In class B, les Elegantes des Mers the 151 ft Pilot Classic Elfje has sailed in a very strong field, ending mid field.
In Class C, Les Mademoiselles del Mers, the 156ft classic sloop Wisp sailed fabulous all three days (1st,2nd and 1st) and became class winner! Great crew work and fast in all points of sail.
Very special was the big J-class fleet this year, with 6 yachts in total and two of the boards of Hoek Design, Lionheart and J8 Topaz. They sailed 5 races, resulting in a third positon for Lionheart and a fifth place for Topaz.
Congrats to all winners, it was a great event!
