For the second year running, England's Pendennis Shipyard and Christophe Harbour came together following the St Barths Bucket to host the St Kitts Rendezvous. From 21 to 23 April, Christophe Harbour welcomed six stunning yachts, their guests and their crews to the island for a couple days of relaxed activities and fun. From sailing along St Kitt's leeward shore to a typically English cricket match to paddleboard relay races and island exploring, the St Kitts Rendezvous was a chance for everyone to unwind after the high octain energy of the Bucket and enjoy all that Christophe Harbour and St Kitts have to offer.

“We think that Christophe Harbour provides the perfect sojourn for yachts travelling between St Barth’s and Antigua after the excitement and buzz of the St Barth’s Bucket," says Toby Allies, sales and marketing director at Pendennis. "The aim of our event, tucked in straight after the Bucket, is to give owners, captains and crew a chance to relax and enjoy their time on the island while enjoying a blend of Cornish and Kittitian hospitality at its finest. We are pleased to have partnered once again with Buddy and his team to deliver the second Pendennis St Kitts Rendezvous to a new fleet of yachts and we very much hope that the event grows year on year to mirror the marina development, which is really thriving.”
For founder of Christophe Harbour, Buddy Darby, the uniquely relaxed atmosphere of this event is testament the great partnership between Pendennis and Christophe Harbour, and the best way to follow the fast-paced energy of the St Barths Bucket. “It was wonderful to have Pendennis and a fleet of such beautiful yachts in St Kitts for the Rendezvous once again," he says. "This season has been such a busy one for Christophe Harbour and it was great to bring it to a close with a bang in the company of such great people. We already look forward to next year and, as Toby says, to the event growing along with the Marina and wider development in years to come."
