Organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the Perini Navi Cup 2011 is also a collaboration of big players in the boating industry, with brands such as Marina Yachting, Sonus Faber, Yacht Capital, Audi, Axa Yachting Solutions, Icet, Quadrivio, Rolex, Champagne Pommery and Calvisius participating in the three-day regatta.
20 yachts are set to race in the three-day regatta. Not only will there be a grand Perini Navi Trophy, there will also be trophies for each daily race to be given by Marina Yachting, Axa Yachting Solutions, and Quadrivio Sgr Trophies.
Perini Navi claims to be the world leader in motor yachts and mega sailing. Its yachts are one of the most innovative and competitive in the industry, so seeing these Perini superyachts in action is bound to be an exciting experience for regatta fans!
The first Perini Navi Cup was held in 2004, followed by the next two editions in 2006 and 2009 respectively.
If you’re planning to try your hand at boat racing or just want to witness superyachts go head to head against each other, then you shouldn’t miss this year’s Perini Navi Cup 2011. Since the event isn’t annually held, there’s no telling when the next Perini regatta will be held. When setting sail for Italy, just make sure that your own yacht is in perfect condition! Don’t forget to have your propellers and navigation system checked!
