We are off to the Perini Navi Cup in Porto Cervo

The scene is set for the start of fourth edition of the Perini Navi Cup taking place in Porto Cervo from today until the 4th September.
What is more we are among the select few journalists invited by Perini Navi to go and join in the fun and excitement.
Eighteen Perini Navi sailing yachts have gathered in Porto Cervo for the event which is open only to yachts built by the Viareggio shipyard.
Organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the regatta combines spectacular sailing with an exclusive rendezvous for the owners that make up the “Perini family”.
Fleet racing takes place over three days with courses of up to 40 miles set against the crystalline waters and granite islands and outcrops of the La Maddalena archipelago.
Owners, guests and crews will be kept busy after racing on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September with a complete social programme that includes:
  • Pommery champagne reception
  • Cocktail competition between participating yachts
  • Rolex gala dinner
  • Quadrivio regatta party at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda’s Clubhouse.
