St Barths Bucket is the highlight of a busy Spring 2013

The Marine Results team have been in both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean this spring.  Director Jon Morris was tasked with putting a crew together for Prana, the luxury 170ft/52m Dubois designed cruising yacht, formerly Kokomo, for the St Barths Bucket in March.  Having familiarised himself with the yacht, he will be returning to carry out a full rig inspection on her prior to the Dubois Cup. In fact Marine Results has already done some work on the yacht’s hydraulic systems previously.

At the same regatta Ed Danby as crew boss and Ben Wood as mainsail trimmer sailed on Salute, the 56 metre Perini Navi sloop which has the world’s tallest aluminium mast at 75 metres. Salute’s  rig has been extensively serviced by Marine Results.

Jon Morris and Simon Fairman (‘Spoons’) made an emergency flight to St Lucia to the aid of a 37m fast cruising sloop, which had broken her mast below spreader 4.  They cut away the top section and made the yacht safe for a passage to Antigua, where she could be more fully assessed.  Marine Results is now working in conjunction with the owner to put a specification together for the new mast.

Back on the other side of the Atlantic, members of the Marine Results team have been busy at their La Ciotat base in the South of France, servicing the rig of the yacht Atmosphere, (pictured) a 53m tri deck motor sailer from Perini Navi.  Service work has been carried out on the rods, using NDT inspection techniques, which had been sent back to the UK to the inspection workshop while the mast was being painted.  All the components have now been shipped back to La Ciotat in a 40ft container and the team will be reassembling the mast in April and May.  After this Marine Results will oversee the stepping and tuning, following which sail trials will take place, and  the yacht will be on her way to continue her 2013 programme by the middle of May.
