THE FESTIVITIES

Yachting - - CURRENTS -

Six­teen Huck­ins yachts, rang­ing from 33 to 75 feet length over­all, par­tic­i­pated in the builder’s 90th-an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion and own­ers’ ren­dezvous in April. The fleet of yachts ran up the St. Johns River in Florida and an­chored in one of its trib­u­taries. “See­ing the boats run­ning at speed over 20 knots and see­ing them all to­gether is just beau­ti­ful,” Huck­ins Yacht’s owner Cindy Pur­cell says. Some of the braver at­ten­dees went out al­li­ga­tor watch­ing around mid­night the first night, she said, and on Satur­day morn­ing, the group gath­ered to chris­ten En­durance, a re­cently re­fit­ted yacht. The cel­e­bra­tory week­end ended with an an­nounce­ment about the new Huck­ins 38 Sports­man Day Cruiser.
