Sailyachts 26 March 2019
With just over two months to go before the 12th edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, organised in Porto Cervo by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, 24 boats have been pre-registered. There are two new features: it will last an extra day for any recoveries, and it will be open to multihulls over 50 feet.
The Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta will start exactly on the 3rd of June. Now, the longest registered yacht is Q, built by Alloy Yachts to a design by Ed Dubois, 51.70 metres long, followed by the 49.80 metres Silencio by Perini Navi, which returns to Costa Smeralda after winning its class at the Perini Navi Cup in 2018.
Another winner that will be back is Pier Luigi Loro Piana’s Baltic 130, My Song, which won the last edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta. Ad Maiora, Dragon and R-Six are currently registered in the multihull category.
The Southern Wind Rendezvous and Trophy returns to Porto Cervo, at its fourteenth edition, and a new cup will be delivered personally by Pier Luigi Loro Piana. This prize will be dedicated to the memory of engineer Willy Persico, father of all Southern Wind. Among the 10 yachts currently pre-registered there is also the Kiboko Tres, the second model of the new 105 footer, launched in October 2018, which arrived in the Mediterranean after the transatlantic transfer from Cape Town, where it was built.
The SW-RP90 All Smoke, designed by Reichel/Pugh and Nauta Design, will also make its racing debut, while the SW102 Seawave will take to the water as the titleholder and Massimiliano Florio’s SW82 Grande Orazio will be on a par with the sistership Ammonite.
Other yachts already certain to be at Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Porto Cervo include Sir Lindsay Owen Jones’ Wallycento Magic Carpet 3, Thomas Bscher’s Wally 106′ Open Season, Antonio Cacace’s Wally 94′Magic Blue and Rebel’s, designed by Malcom McKeon of Paola and Salvatore Trifirò.
