Eighth Edition of Perini Navi Cup Postponed
The Eighth Edition of the Perini Navi Cup originally scheduled to run from 16th to 19th September 2020 has been put back by one year.
Perini Navi, who design and builder of sailing and motor superyachts, made the decision stating it was “Necessary due to the persistent Covid-19 emergency and its expansion into almost every country in the world.”
The event will now take place from 15th to 18th September 2021 in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, and will as usual be organised in collaboration with the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda.
“We believe that postponing the Perini Navi Cup to 2021 is the best possible decision at the moment, although we made it with great regret” commented Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of Perini Navi.
He added, “We would like to thank our Owners and Partners as well as the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and all our Friends who had already confirmed their participation. We look forward to seeing you all next year, for a Perini Navi Cup full of joy and enthusiasm.”
