NEWPORT, R.I. (August 1, 2016) – The transition of the former Newport Bucket into the Candy Store Cup Superyacht Edition appeared effortless and suitably fabulous when a dozen of the world’s grandest sailing yachts competed off Newport, R.I. from Friday, July 29 through Sunday, July 31 and benefitted from the combined forces of co-hosts Newport Shipyard and Bannister's Wharf. In true Bucket fashion, social activities included a “yacht hop” on Friday night aboard the participants’ yachts, a gathering at Newport’s famous Clarke Cooke House, and a regatta dinner with live reggae music on the grounds of a Newport estate.

Report after Day 1 of Candy Store Cup Newport:

Veronica Brown

July 30, 2016 - Newport Shipyard and Bannister's Wharf kicked off the Candy Store Cup in spectacular fashion yesterday with constantly improving sailing conditions with clearing skies and smiling crews. There was an infectious camaraderie in the air with the sailors of the grandest ladies of the sea. They knew each other well, and renewed old times the night before at the Candy Store at the Clarke Cooke House and the Shipyard. 

The boats were the real story with super-yachts like Adix, Meteor, Columbia, Zenji, Ranger and that was less than half of the eye candy Newporters got to see. Race officer Peter Craig was pleased with the wind velocities, points of sail on the racecourse, and close finishes. Charlie Dana of Newport Shipyard said, "I was aboard schooner Meteor agog much of the time at what was around us. We're thrilled these yachts honored us by participating".
