Photo Gallery: Perini Navi Cup 2011 Day 1

Yesterday a fleet of super sailing yachts arrived in the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo for the fourth edition of the Perini Navi Cup and today was the first race day of the amazing sailing event. Although the weather forecasts weren't good for today, it turned out to be a great first race day. I sailed on the red-hulled 45 metre sloop rigged Helios and I am pleased to share the first photos of the event here. More news will follow later tonight.
