Captain Benn and the crew of the Seven B’s V, an 80-foot Lydia yacht, hosted the Head Quarter sponsors of the round-the-world, Volvo Ocean 65 race during their recent stopover in Newport, RI, the only North American stopover of this 9-monoth regatta.
The sponsors, who flew in from Brazil, Argentina, Dubai, Spain, Germany and Sweden, chartered the Seven B’s V for two days to watch the six yachts compete in several races in the Rhode Island Sound before leaving for Liston, their next destination.
“Everyone had an awesome experience!” was how Wendy Gray, head of Hospitality and Protocol for the Volvo Ocean Race, summarized the sponsors’ experience aboard the Seven B’s V, which offered unobstructed views of the race and space for the chefs to prepare and serve fine foods and wines.
Docked in the port of Galilee, Narragansett, RI, the Seven B’s can be chartered for your special event. Contact the office at (401) 789-9250 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org, for more details.
