Dubois-designed luxury yachts once again featured strongly in the recent Caribbean regattas. Charter yacht Salperton has become the overall winner of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) in the popular yacht charter destination – Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.
Sailing yacht Zefira also sailed beautifully and put in a great performance, coming in second on Day Two.
Hot on the heels of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous came the St Barths Bucket and once again Dubois designs were prominent.
Six Dubois-designed sailing yachts joined the ‘Mademoiselles des Mers’ class.
The classic styled yacht Adela was beautifully sailed and took first in class with Salperton winning the race on the last day to clinch second.
Superyacht Zefira also sailed extremely well, particularly during the second race where she was first of the Dubois designs, overtaking luxury yacht Koo on the final stretch and beating her by only one minute, forty seconds!
Charter yacht Lady B, whcih excelled so brilliantly in the 2012 event once again showed her exceptional pace and good sailing. A headboard car failure in the last race forced retirement.
Sarafin yacht followed up her good showing in the BVI regatta and this says much for this design – the Oyster 100 by Dubois.
Luxury yacht Prana, the largest Dubois design on display, was also well sailed for much of the time and did well, especially for a larger yacht where sail-handling can sometimes prove a challenge!
The 2001-built Koo yacht, sailing with no spinnaker, had a great regatta and finished off the Dubois group with great style.
