And the Winner of the Perini Navi Cup is…


The sixth edition of the Perini Navi Cup has ended the Cup has been handed over and it will rest with the winners for the next two years until the SuperYacht builder hosts the next event in 2017.

With two victories in three races run, it was the 56-metre ketch Rosehearty, with Paul Cayard calling tactics that claimed overall victory

Second place went to the 45-metre sloop Clan VIII

The 60-metre ketch Seahawk, launched in 2013 and with Mike Toppa on tactics, pulled off third overall thanks to a bullet in today’s final race.

The third and final coastal race around the islands of the La Maddalena archipelago brought the fleet south of Porto Cervo to round the picturesque isles of Mortorio and Soffi before returning to cross the finish line off the Gulf of Pevero.

After two days of light airs, the 23/25 knots of westerly wind blowing on the starting line were a welcome change and provided for some exciting racing for sailors and spectators alike. The decidedly brisker conditions clearly suited the 60 metre ketch Seahawk, who claimed her first win of the regatta ahead of Clan VII.

Rosehearty, took third place but her previous two consecutive bullets assured her an overall win, just one point ahead of Clan VIII.
