Rondal congratulates sailing yacht Hanuman on her overall victory in the J-Class series of the St Barths Bucket 2013, the event which has been called, by some, “the most important super yacht regatta in the world.”
Luxury yacht Hanuman scored a superb 4 : 0 victory in the most memorable post-1937 J-class fleet series regatta to date, competing in the St Barths Bucket over the Easter weekend.
Sublimely, Hanuman yacht won three out of four races on line honors and all four races on corrected time under the most exhilarating and challenging conditions, in the event which had a historic number of five J-class sloops competing.
A magnificent result for helmsman Ken Read and Captain Greg Sloat and the rest of their very skilled Hanuman crew!
Earlier this year, Rondal supplied new spreaders to accommodate new continuous standing rigging suiting the existing carbon Rondal mast on board superyacht Hanuman.
Apart from the new, lighter and smaller spreaders, the Rondal experts together with the highly knowledgeable permanent crew of Hanuman yacht managed to create extra weight savings on electronics and other mast gear. This entire weight saving exercise definitely helped the outstanding tactics and boat handling of Ken Read and his crew to put this impressive result on the scoring boards and into the history books of J-class sailing.
