In the refit and restoration division a long term refit project on the 22m Windhaven is also in progress. Designed and built by Col Wild in the 1940s, this iconic New Zealand yacht had been out of the water in various states of refit for more than a decade before being taken to Yachting Developments 18 months ago. The yard was chosen by her Kiwi owner thanks to their strong affiliation with classic boats and experience in this type of project.
As a silver sponsor of the event Yachting Developments was delighted to witness 37m Bliss, 33.8m Silvertip and iconic local boat 25m Steinlager 2 in action on their home waters. After some close fought racing Bliss came a very close second to eventual winner 50m Silencio, with Steinlager 2 winning the Pacific Cup division on the event.
