For Bluenose owner, Glenn Walters, sailing fast on high-performing boats has always been something near and dear to his heart.

Whether it's the Lobster Run to Maine, or the Bermuda One-Two or the Ida Lewis Distance Race, it's all about sailing fast and having fun.

"Sailing has always been a lifelong passion for me. Throw racing into the mix and it immediately amplifies the fun factor and adds the elements of competition and teamwork into the whole experience; I love it!" says Glenn

The idea of forming a specific performance sailing program within the Bluenose dealership started to come into focus a couple of years ago with the introduction of the Sun Fast 3300.

"I really thought the 3300 was a great boat right from the start, especially for short-handed sailing. And the fact that it was getting podium finishes on the race courses in Europe, really got me excited. I couldn't wait to get my hands on one here in Newport," says Glenn.

Since introducing the Sun Fast 3300 in 2019, its popularity has continued to grow, thanks in part to Ken Read, President of North Sails who has been campaigning the boat on a regular basis for the past couple of years and winning.

"In a 33 foot boat you're going 12-13 knots in 20 knots of breeze. We weren't even trying yet. So it's fun." - Ken Read, President of North Sales
