WRAPPING UP A WEEK OF SAILING AND SERVICE IN ST BARTHS
North’s Certified Service mobile superyacht loft keeps clients race-ready every morning
The final day of racing in the St Barth’s Bucket Regatta reminded competitors of the spectacular sailing conditions that keep them coming back to this island haven every year. In fact, sunny skies with around 15 – 20 knots of wind delivered optimum conditions on all three race days. North Sails is a proud sponsor of the Bucket and enjoyed the opportunity to see many of our clients “match up” in one of the most beautiful sailing areas, on some of the most beautiful yachts.
North Sails Certified Service mobile service loft was onsite to accommodate nightly repairs and maintenance. This dedicated crew of sailmakers worked into the wee hours each night to complete 56 jobs, spanning 26 different teams, over the course of the regatta. Director of North Sails Certified Service, Ben Fletcher, reported roughly 250 service hours logged for his modest team of five.
“It’s been a long few days! While it may be hard work, it’s easy to get the job done when we know how much our clients appreciate it,” said Ben.
“Big thanks to Ben and his service team for completing our repair in time for the regatta on Wisp. The crew really appreciates them working until 5:30am to get us back on the water the next morning,” said North Sails Expert Jeremy Smart, who trimmed alongside colleague Jesper Felt, of North Sails Denmark, on Wisp. Keep an eye out for North Sails Certified Service popping up at more regattas in the future!
