Bluenose Yachts and Jeanneau have teamed up with the Dongfeng Race team for this special event. Jeanneau has a special sponsor relationship with Dongfeng race team as a result of providing their race team some of our Sunfast Race boats to practice with.

We have a limited number of tickets available but we are confident all attendees to this weekend event will have a fabulous time, watching some great racing and have an opportunity to climb aboard our latest Sunfast 3600 that just arrived this week for a special Rhode Island client. This new Sunfast 3600 will here for the weekend and we are planning a technical design presentation. Come to see one of the fastest 36 footers, easy to race, double handed or team, that is winning races both here and in Europe. The SF3600 technical presentation is open upon your request below while our other events are available to a limited number of guests and if over subscribed we will conduct a ticket lottery. We look forward to seeing you.
