This year’s vintage fleet also will feature a “memory lane” of sportfishing yachts built by local builder Rybovich & Sons. Showgoers will be able journey through the times and designs of the innovative Rybovich family, credited with inventing the fighting chair and tuna door in the 1940s. One of the highlights of the 2016 Palm Beach Vintage Regatta for participating yacht owners and VIP Pass-holders will be a keynote presentation at the VIP and Captains Award party at Camelot Yacht Club by Michael Rybovich, a member of the family’s third generation, who has carried on its wooden boat-building tradition at Michael Rybovich & Sons in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

The Inaugural Palm Beach Vintage Regatta, held in February, 2015, drew more than 35 antique and vintage yachts including the eighth Presidential Yacht, Honey Fitz, known as the “Yacht of Camelot” because it was a favorite of President John F. Kennedy and his family. Over 8,000 people attended the event, strolling the docks to admire the vintage wooden boats and learn about their histories.

The Palm Beach Vintage Regatta is the brainchild of nightclub and restaurant mogul Rodney Mayo, owner of the popular West Palm Beach night spot Camelot Yacht Club, and renowned antique boat restoration expert Jim Moores of Moores Marine in Riviera Beach, Fla. Their goal was to return the elegance and grace of vintage yachts to the Lake Worth waterfront.
