The exclusive biennial superyacht regatta is again to take place in the glistening waters off Porto Cervo, Sardinia this year. Hosted by the Yacht Club Costa Smerelda, the Perini Navi Cup will take place from 2 – 5 September and attracts a number of superyachts built by the acclaimed Italian shipyard, to battle for line honours over three days of racing.
The fleet this year consists of over 13 Perini Navi yachts, including the new 60m Perseus 3, 2013 regatta’s star, Seahawk, as well as familiar sights such as the iconic 88m Maltese Falcon, the 2007 Helios and the 2008-built Baysian (ex. Salute). The special Picchiotti Vitruvius 50m motor yacht Exuma will also be making an appearance, upon returning to the Med after recently spending time in South East Asia and other pacific destinations.
The race committee will be enforcing the new ORC SY handicapping rule; a set of guidelines specifically designed to ensure safety and ultimate enjoymeny by all on the water during superyacht regattas, while still retaining the spirit of true regatta racing. In addition to the on-water action, each day’s races will be followed by an exclusive series of post-race events.
In addition, Fabio and Milena Perini will be sharing with the participants a charity project developed by ABF- Andrea Bocelli Foundation, the foundation created by their friends Andrea and Veronica Bocelli. This project provides full medical care for over 1000 children in Haiti.
