Record number of owners attend the CNB Rendez-vous
18 CNB yachts gathered at the port of Bonifacio on 17 June 2016 to attend the annual get-together of CNB owners, the CNB Rendezvous 2016. They were greeted with full honours by the town and port of Bonifacio.
Six CNB 76s, eleven Bordeaux 60s and a one-off came to the start line during a gentlemen's rally. The conditions were perfect for enjoyment, with a 15-20 knot wind and glorious sunshine.
Participants were able to enjoy a picnic at anchor in the Maddalena archipelago between Corsica and Sardinia, and a night in the Sardinian port of Poltu Quatu, reserved exclusively for the occasion.
These few days were also punctuated by some enjoyable evenings organised with the assistance of our partners Volvo, Raymarine, Incidence, North Sails and Thiénot Champagne.
The next CNB event is already in hand, since Sapphire, CNB 76 no. 7 is currently in Newport, Rhode Island for trial day sails from Saturday 25 to Tuesday 28 June 2016.
On the occasion of the first trial sails on US shores, CNB is organising a reception for its customers and the press on 25 June at Newport Marina.
