Coming last of the four Js at this year´s St Barths Regatta, the 42m sailing yacht Hanuman was unfortunately withdrawn from the 2012 UK regattas. Due to the owner´s business elsewhere in June, the 130ft charter yacht Endeavour cannot attend the Falmouth Regatta either, so only four yachts are expected to compete and not the six as being planned for.
Even though this is a big disappointment, four of these massive yachts sailing in Falmouth bay will still offer a spectacular sight – not to be missed.
The 39m superyacht Velsheda is due to arrive in Falmouth within seven days. Her support ship MY Bystander has already arrived. The 41.55m charter yacht Ranger will very shortly berth in Ocean Village, Southampton, before repositioning to Falmouth by early June. The new 40m yacht Rainbow, launched just before Christmas 2011, is now on sail trials in Holland in preparation for the event. She will be supported by the 57 metre ship, MV Holland. The 43.4m sailing yacht Lionheart is also scheduled to arrive in Falmouth shortly.
The Js are planning to leave at the end of the Falmouth event, and reposition at Solent Refit, in preparation for the Solent regattas. The luxury yacht Endeavour is currently still planning to compete, together with the other four yachts, making a fleet of five.
