The fleet

The inaugural Candy Store Cup took place over the weekend (July 29-31), with 12 modern and classic sailing yachts lining up in Newport, Rhode Island. Formerly known as the Newport Bucket, the relaunched regatta starred the 42 metre J-class yacht Ranger, the 52 metre Royal HuismanMeteor and the 65 metre schooner Adix (all pictured above).

Charlie Dana, owner of Newport Shipyard who co-hosted the event with Bannister's Wharf, said: “There was an easy camaraderie in the air as sailors from around the world renewed old friendships, but the real story was the spectacle on the water. I was aboard schooner Meteor, agog much of the time at what was around us. It was a jaw-dropping sight. We're thrilled these yachts honoured us by participating."
