ALCHEMIST, a Sun Fast 3300 owned by Bluenose Yacht Sales of New England, for the past two years has had more podium and first place finishes than any other boat in her class on the USA east coast.
In the most recent Newport to Bermuda with nearly 200 boats in the Gibbs and St David's divisions, ALCHEMIST finished third overall, 2nd in Class, and 3rd in Division. A four-person team raced hard for nearly 700 miles and was one of the smallest boats entered in this world, renowned, off shore race. Glenn Walters, managing partner of BYS along with his race-experienced son, Darren, spearheaded the team with two other seasoned crew mates. At one point in the race, they were routinely exceeding twenty knots of boat speed in a broad reach surfing conditions for several hours. With a full mainsail, a 1.5 asymmetric spinnaker, plus a staysail spinnaker, the Sun Fast 3300 was in full on, send it mode.
Bluenose Yacht Sales is actively building a fleet on the east coast and has stock boats available with race training. We welcome all winners to join us in the fun.
Bluenose Yacht Sales is also proud to have sponsored two women who raced back to Newport in the inaugural double-handed race.Sara and Cat, not only won their class, but won this race overall.
Neither of them had raced a Sun Fast 3300.
