RACEWEEK IS COMING TO TOWN!
We are absolutely thrilled that the Sperry Topsider Charleston Race Week is coming to our home port from April 14th to the 17th.
With more than 240 boats registered for racing, the rapidly growing event has become the largest keelboat regatta in the US.
Check out the Race Week website, especially the great footage of racing (and relaxing) in the video. With average temperatures of highs in the mid-70’s and lows in the mid-50’s (and lots of good wind), this event is a sure crowd-pleaser and just plain awesome for the participants. Hope to see you there!
See who’s in it to win it.

St. Barts Upcoming Boat Shows
TAKE A LOOK
Sense 50
Sense 50Our Sense 50 returns to the Charleston yard after a successful campaign at the Miami Boat Show in February. Stop by for a guided tour, or click here to get yourself a quick preview.
This boat continues to be a “show-stopper!” Her designers have literally reinvented the concept of sailing in comfort and with speed.

NEW BOATS
Beneteau First 30
First 30Our featured boat this month is the Beneteau First 30. We’ll be getting one in our Jacksonville office in April, and the Annapolis Yacht Sales Race Team will be racing one during Charleston Race Week. Good Luck!
Check out this video of Benetau’s latest high-performance cruiser.

St. Barts Services Department
Our sales teams may sell the boats, but our Service Department keeps our customers happy!
Jean Michel, our service manager, comes back from France next week after a series of meetings with Beneteau Customer service. He spent a week on the production lines of the Monte Carlo 47 and Beneteau Oceanis 58. This will greatly help our service department as we commission these big new boats.

Both of these shows are the same weekend as Race Week, so we at St. Barts Yachts will be pretty busy – but we still hope to see you somewhere that weekend!
From the Helm - notes from Chuck Laughlin
The boating season is here. We are seeing 70 degree weather and great winds!
Our service department is in full blown new boat commissioning mode. We’re getting a new boat each week from the Beneteau factory, for which we are very grateful. The new owners are excited too, and are actively making their cruising plans for this spring, summer and beyond.
The Miami Boat Show never fails to amaze me. So many boats in 4 different venues — it would take several days to see everything! But that’s a show you want to see, if you get the chance. Go with friends, see all the new boats and accessories. As I walked around the show, I was reminded of why I love boating, and of all the great family times I have had being a boater.
All of us came back enthused by seeing our customers at the show, and the new friends we made. I predict that, when all is said and done, we will have had one of the best Miami shows in the history of St Barts.
Charleston Race Week is next month and we are excited for the Annapolis Yacht Sales team to bring their First 30 to race. CRW is the largest Keel Boat Regatta on the East Coast of the US, and has 240 boats scheduled to race. This is the first race for the First 30 in the US, stay tuned to see how we do! Jeff Knoll from St Barts will be crewing and learning how to make it fast. Next month we will get a First 30 to Jacksonville, Fl — Jeff will be racing it with the new owners.
I hope you have big plans for this season and if there is anything we can do to help facilitate your boating please let us know.
Fair winds,
Chuck
