Hodgdon Yacht's WINDCREST Takes 3rd in St. Barth'sMay 2, 2012
East Boothbay, Maine - USA
After 3 days of classic Caribbean racing, Hodgdon-built WINDCREST finished 3rd in the Elegantes class and 3rd overall in the largest St. Barth's Bucket fleet of 47 superyachts. Launched in 2006, the Ted Fontaine designed boat placed 22nd on day 1, 2nd on day 2 and 3rd on day 3 for a 3rd place out of 13 and a very impressive 4th overall out of 47.
The 98-foot WINDCREST is built of advanced cold molded wood construction and features a Hodgdon-designed and built interior. True to the characteristics of a Fontaine design, WINDCREST combines cruising comfort with impressive performance. While Hodgdon's new builds today are more commonly of infused carbon-kevlar composite construction, the legacy and heritage of nearly 200 years of boatbuilding goes into every new Hodgdon as it did on WINDCREST.
On behalf of all of us at Hodgdon, congratulations to the owners and crew of WINDCREST.
