Admirers of vintage yachts and sailing enthusiasts of all ages came to the West Palm Beach waterfront on Saturday, Feb. 20 for the second annual Palm Beach Vintage Regatta, presented by Camelot Yacht Club and Moores Marine.
Apart from the classic yachts, there were classic cars on display, exhibits, food and drink and for VIP attendees, champagne and lobster.
For the second year in a row, the star of the show was the Presidential yacht Honey Fitz, used by five Presidents, including John F. Kennedy, who renamed it "Honey Fitz."
Admission was free, and it's a unique opportunity to see these beautiful boats up close and personal. Here are photos from the event as we look forward to next year's production.
Best in Show: 'Classic Lady'
Greg and Susan McGee were at the Regatta with their 1958 Matthews 42 cruiser, "Classic Lady," which was awarded "Best in Show" at this year's event. The couple talked about moving from Virginia to their new home base in Stuart, Fl.
"The first thing we did was get our boat here," said Susan. Then they decided to charter it for half-day and full-day cruises. It accommodates up to six people, and more information is available at www.classicladycruises.com.
