Today the fourth edition of the Perini Navi Cup begins. Porto Cervo, Sardinia provides the spectacular backdrop for this event in which eighteen Perini Navi sailing yachts will compete. The event is only open to yachts built by the renowned Viareggio shipyard and is organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. The regatta is both a race and a rendezvous for owners in the “Perini family”. Racing courses of up to 40 miles are set against the breathtaking scenery of the La Maddalena archipelago.The fleet of superyachts includes the new 56-metre ketch FIDELIS, designed in collaboration with Ron Holland. Other sailing legends assembled in Porto Cervo are SALUTE, with the tallest aluminum mast in the world, and the MALTESE FALCON, the largest Perini Navi sailing yacht in the world and winner of the last two editions of the Perini Navi Cup.
Owners, guests and crews will be kept busy after racing on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September with a complete social program that includes a Pommery champagne reception, a cocktail competition between participating yachts, the Rolex gala dinner and the Quadrivio regatta party at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda’s Clubhouse.
Following the Perini Navi Cup the YCCS sporting calendar continues in Porto Cervo with the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (5-10 September), the Veteran Big Boat Rally (12-15 September) and the Audi TP52 World Championship (2-8 October).
