Twelve yachts between 20 and 56 meters in length gather on Rhode Island Sounds for two days of fleet racing

For the third year since 2016, twelve of the world’s most beautiful yachts sailed to Newport, RI for the 2019 Candy Store Cup superyacht regatta July 26 and 27. Light winds, sunny skies, and perfect temperatures gave sailors and organizers the ideal backdrop for two days of yacht racing and parties at the famed Newport Shipyard, a superyacht marina and working shipyard on Newport’s waterfront, and at the Clarke Cooke House, renowned for its innovative cuisine and known as a legendary watering hole for sailors and royalty alike, on beautiful Bannister’s Wharf. Newport Shipyard and Bannister’s Wharf co-own the regatta, which carries forward the tradition of the original Nantucket Bucket and more recently the Newport Bucket, which was last held in Newport in 2015.
