Tempus Fugit Scores Well in Caribbean Sailing Circuit

Tempus Fugit, the Tempus 90 owned by businessman and art collector Erbil Arkin has performed well in her first Caribbean racing season.
The owner is one of three active superyacht owners we have interviewed for the next edition of Super Yacht Owners Guide which will be published at the Monaco Yacht Show later this year.
Designed by Humphreys Yacht Design of Lymington, UK, she is the first in a range of classically inspired yachts.
Beautifully constructed of cold moulded wood epoxy by Arkin Pruva in Antalya, Turkey, she belongs to a new class of its own; spiritually close to its forebears, but developed in a number of ways to fulfil contemporary lifestyle requirements
Having achieved a second overall in the practice race the day before the regatta started Tempus Fugit then continued to be 1st in class on day 1 in the first race beating the field of much larger yachts including the Fitzroy built Moonbird and the Perini Navi Sea Hawk.
By the end of the regatta Tempus Fugit came 3rd in class overall; a very credible result on her first superyacht regatta especially as the International Super Yacht Rating is (by its own admission) harder on new yachts.
Her varnished topsides stood out amongst a field of giant sailing yachts and despite being one of the ‘smaller’ sailing yachts present she was much admired, talked about and visited during the regatta.
Commenting on her performance, Rob Humphreys, head of the Humphreys Yacht Design studio said, “We continue to be thrilled that the first Tempus 90 has again really delivered in terms of looks, quality and performance.”

He added, “We were looking forward to competing with some of the best sailing superyachts in the world and we were delighted, yet again, that the design has proved more than a match for the best, which is a huge endorsement for the Tempus Class.”
