Marine Results test their superyacht rigs at St Barts Bucket

The St Barts Bucket 22-25 March is the three day annual superyacht regatta on the magical Caribbean island of St Barths and a favourite of Marine Results.

It’s also an opportunity to race on and against the many world famous yachts whose rigs the company is responsible for. In 2012 Directors Ed Danby and Ben Wood respectively sailed on Hyperion and Moonbird. Both were acting in a professional capacity as crew boss. In the case of Hyperion Ed was responsible for some 30-strong crew of guests largely from the marine industry.

Ed knows the yacht intimately since Hyperion, at 156 ft (47 metres) has just undergone a full mast refit, carried out by Marine Results, as part of a required 8 year service. She was in Newport Shipyard last autumn when Marine Results pulled out her massive 59 metre carbon fibre rig to carry out a full service and inspection.

Meanwhile the rig on the 37.08m (121ft 8in) dubois designed sloop Moonbird has also been serviced by Marine Results. Both in the same class, Ben beat Ed by three places overall!
