The Perini Navi Group is ready to begin the fourth edition of the Perini Navi Cup. The competition, open only to yachts from the Perini Navi fleet, will take place against the wonderful backdrop of Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
The regatta, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and Perini Navi, also avails itself of collaborations with important national and international brands such as Audi, Axa Yachting Solutions, Calvisius, Champagne Pommery, Icet, Marina Yachting, Quadrivio Sgr, Rolex, Sonus Faber and Yacht Capital.
The 2011 edition of the Perini Navi Cup will see 19 yachts participating in three days of racing to win the Perini Navi Trophy, which in the past has been won by the 40m ketch Principessa Vaivia and by the 88m clipper The Maltese Falcon.
On top of the overall trophy, there will be prizes for the daily regattas with the Marina Yachting, Axa Yachting Solutions and Quadrivio Sgr trophies.
The fleet gathering in the waters of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda will range from the 33.5m sloop Heritage M to the 88m clipper The Maltese Falcon. Some of the Perini Navi Group’s most recently launched yachts, including the 56m ketch Fidelis, will also be present. The ORC rating system will be used and the regatta will be run by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda staff. Since 2009 they have been counting the Perini Navi Cup amongst their most important events.
