ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BALL Watch CEO Jeffrey P. Hess has announced that BALL Watch USA has been selected to be the official Watch for the Re-Launch of the historic St. Petersburg-Habana Regatta, as well as watch sponsor and timing partner to The St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
The regatta, which started on March 30, 1930, will once again start in downtown St. Petersburg, FL on February 28, 2017 and, after 284 nautical miles of competitive sailing, will finish at the Hemingway Marina in Havana Cuba. The race has been certified by the Cuban government as a sporting event featuring a field of 70 to 100 sail boats in four classes from around the USA. The race began in the late 1920s but was last run in 1959 due to the US embargo on Cuba.
