Quest Wins Newport!

Quest wins Nantucket and Newport Classic Regattas


Over the September 1-2 Labor Day weekend, the 1930 yacht Quest won the Museum of Yachting Classic Yacht Regatta in Newport, Rhode Island.  Quest, a Fife 8 meter recently restored by boat builders French & Webb of Belfast, Maine, also won the Opera House Cup on August 19th in Nantucket, Massachusetts. 


The two Regattas were part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge’s North American Circuit, which also included the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta in Marblehead, Massachusetts on August 11-12th.  Each regatta typically attracts 50-60 of the East Coast’s most magnificent classic sailing vessels as well as some classic beauties from around the world. 


Race weekends include multiple class winners and an overall regatta winner.  In a rare feat, Quest won both her own class and the overall prize at both Nantucket and Newport this year.  At the final awards ceremony on September 2nd in Newport, owners Ron & Diane Palm took home their second Panerai watch, and Quest took 2nd place overall in the Challenge, only one point behind the 12 meter Valiant.
