Winter maintenance works in Portoferraio (Elba) are almost complete.
Whitefin was built in Maine, USA, and designed by Californian designer Bruce King who, after having established a reputation creating many successful, innovative ocean racing and cruising boats, moved from Newport Harbor, California, to Maine, to work on the Whitefin project.
All the original drawings have been recently recovered in Newport Beach, California.

Whitefin is ready for a new year full of regattas!
For a truly unique experience Whitefin offers race charters for a variety of yachting events throughout the Mediterranean racing season. Few experiences can compare with pushing a 92-foot classic racing yacht to her limits with an experienced and professional race crew.
Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, Les Voiles d’Antibes, Argentario Sailing Week, Vele d’Epoca di Imperia, Cannes Régates Royales, Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, 151 Miglia are just some of the regattas of the Mediterranean circuit. Whitefin maintains a full set of race specific sails and running rigging to maximize her performance around the track. Few things are as spectacular to behold as a spirit of tradition sloop as she charges up the track or at the starting line among a fleet of classics. Wicked.
After a full day of racing you and your guests can relax for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, chatting with race crew and planning the next day’s assault on the fleet.
