Oyster Regatta: Palma 2018 Round-Up - Yacht Harbour

The yachting world is made up of fantastic events, from roaring regattas to glamourous boat shows. However, one company that takes this to a whole new level is British builder of sailing yachts, Oyster Yachts. With on average two major sailing regattas planned per year for its owners, including the Oyster Regatta Palma and the Oyster Regatta Antigua, this is a brand that knows how to celebrate the boating lifestyle. Earlier this month, the Palma Regatta took over parts of the Balearic Sea as Oyster owners raced each other to victory. A high-spirited event comprised of sailing and socialising in near equal measure, those lucky enough to attend now have a thousand amazing memories to reflect on. For those who didn’t make it this year, catch up on all the best bits below. The sailors raced the passage back from Andratx to the Real Club Náutico de Palma, again in 25 - 30 knots. The fleet decided to dress up for the occasion, and with costumes ranging from superheroes to leprechauns, the Palma Regatta yachts were a sight for sore eyes as they sailed to the finish. Wednesday’s evening plans involved unwinding with some mouth-watering paella and sangria. Thursday was the final day of the Oyster Regatta, Palma. Everyone took part in one last race around the island before evening celebrations at the magnificent Jardines de Alfabia, where the overall race winners were announced. After a delicious dinner, owners, crews, teams and partners danced the night away to the lively music of the Bogus Brothers - the perfect end to a perfect regatta. This year’s Palma Regatta was part of the Sailors for the Sea's Clean Regattas programme, aiming to minimise the impact the event had on the seas by reducing the use of single-use plastics. To achieve this, all caterers provided environmentally-sound alternatives to single-use plastics and there was a free drinking water refill station on the Palma dock. What’s more, yachts that were signed up for the Clean Regatta program received four durable, sustainable and reusable Oyster drinking bottles per yacht. Kibo, the 82-meter Abeking & Rasmussen delivered in 2014, has now been sold and renamed to Grace, various industry sources say. Having first entered the market at an asking price of €150 million, the yacht was asking €129 million at the time of her sale.Delivered by the German shipyard in 2014 to Russian billionaire Alexander Mamut according to British media, the 82-meter yacht spans a total of five decks accessible via a glass elevator. Designed in a light, beige theme, Kibo's interior features several lounging areas and accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 staterooms.Amongst the yacht's other features are a large beach club that comes complete with a bar, a cinema screen in the main salon and an owner's suite with a private terrace on the foredeck. Kibo carries a crew of 23. This summer the yacht was made available for charter for the first time.This becomes the latest megayacht turnover in a particularly active time, which just saw the 72-meter Saint Nicolas being sold. Following the sale, Kibo has now been renamed Grace by her new owner. In the same sector, American businessman Robert Stiller sold his 73-meter Grace E earlier this year asking €78.5 million. The Oyster Regatta, Palma saw Oyster yacht owners come together to socialise, dance, catch up and most importantly race.

MP praises 'new lease of life' at Norfolk's Oyster Yachts after rescue deal - Eastern Daily Press

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb took a tour of the boat-building yard of Oyster Yachts in Hoveton, where he met chief executive Richard Hadida, senior management and shop-floor craftsmen.

Manufacturing at Oyster resumed in May, following the company’s financial struggles when its investors pulled out.

Some 227 employees are now working at the site , with six boats currently under construction.

As chairman of the House of Commons science and technology committee, Mr Lamb took interest in Oyster’s technical strengths and found out about the apprenticeship scheme designed to keep the company’s specialist boat-building skills in the area.

Mr Lamb said: “I really enjoyed visiting the Oyster facility. It is clear the business has been given a new lease of life under Richard’s ownership and importantly brought high skilled, vital jobs back to the region.

“I was impressed with the technical skills inside the operation, combined with the very clear commitment to quality, which sets British boat building apart. I look forward to keeping in close touch with the Oyster team as the business moves from recovery to growth.”

Chief executive Mr Hadida said: “It was an honour to welcome Norman to our re-opened Wroxham plant, a vital part of Oyster Yachts’ heritage and pivotal to our future success.

“My colleagues and I had real pride in showing him those yachts which are currently in-build, as well as updating him on Oyster’s progress over the past few months.

“Norman’s passion for technology and innovation shone through, and I know those colleagues who spoke with him thoroughly enjoyed explaining the attention to detail in every aspect of our yachts which contributes to the overall build quality.

“The experience, technical skill-set and quality of craftsmanship our colleagues at Wroxham provide were some of the key reasons I was so keen to re-open our Wroxham site upon taking on ownership, and why I am so proud of the excellent work being delivered there on a daily basis. We hope to remain in close contact with Norman and continue to play a significant role in the local community.”

Oyster farm decision draws qualified support - The Ellsworth American

PENOBSCOT — The decision by the Department of Marine Resources to approve a lease for an oyster farm in the Bagaduce River has drawn a measure of support from two vocal opponents.

Caren Plank and William McWeeny intervened in the DMR hearing and decision process as opponents to the application by Taunton Bay Oyster Co. for an aquaculture lease to grow oysters in the Bagaduce River.

DMR approved the lease, with conditions, in late September. In October, the company filed an appeal in the Kennebec County Superior Court, contesting the conditions. Shortly before Thanksgiving, Portland attorney Mary Costigan, representing Plank and McWeeney, filed an “Entry of Appearance and Position” with the court supporting the lease but asking for a “(c)larification of the decision.”

Filed more than three years ago, Taunton Bay’s application covered three separate tracts totaling 23.75 acres in the upper reaches of the river near the mouth of Northern Bay.

In September, DMR Commissioner Patrick Keliher granted a lease for two tracts with a total area of slightly more than 19 acres. In addition to eliminating one of the proposed tracts and reducing the area of a second by about 25 percent, the lease also prohibited setting out oyster farming gear on the reduced tract between May 1 and July 1 each year and contained other restrictions on the company’s operations.

In its appeal, Taunton Bay claimed that, “Taken as a whole,” the modifications and conditions “severely limit” its ability “to successfully operate its aquaculture business in the Bagaduce River.”

The appeal also claimed, among other issues, that the lease decision would force the company “to conduct aquaculture activities more extensively in … the lease area of greatest concern” to opponents to the lease.

It also claimed that there was no substantial evidence to support DMR’s finding that it was necessary to reduce the size of “Tract 2” so that aquaculture operations would not unreasonably interfere with small-boat navigation in the area and the rights of riparian property owners — Plank owns an island in the river just to the north of the lease site — to access their land.

DMR also erred in prohibiting dragging and hand raking to harvest oysters on the grounds that it would damage eelgrass, the company claimed, because the aquatic plant is “rare” on the site and would not be removed by harvesting activities.

In their filing, Plank and McWeeny have asked the court to modify the lease decision to ban overwintering of oysters in bottom cages on both tracts approved in the lease, not just one.

“Specifically, the decision does not address the need for any overwintering cages to be removed from Tract 2 prior to May 1st due to lobster and crab fishing,” Plank and McWeeny claim. “Although the decision does prohibit the deployment of gear on Tract 2 between May 1 and July 1, the discussion of said prohibition in the decision relates to floating bags and not to overwintering cages.”

In addition to requesting a modification of the lease, Plank and McWeeny also are asking the court to deny Taunton Bay’s appeal.
