Perini Navi Group prepares for Cup

The Perini Navi Group is ready to begin the fourth edition of the regatta that aficionados most eagerly await: the Perini Navi Cup. The competition, open only to yachts from the Perini Navi fleet, will take place against the wonderful backdrop of Porto Cervo, Sardinia from September 1.

The regatta, organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, also avails itself of collaborations with important national and international brands such as Audi, Axa Yachting Solutions, Calvisius, Champagne Pommery, Icet, Marina Yachting, Quadrivio Sgr, Rolex, Sonus Faber and Yacht Capital.

The 2011 edition of the Perini Navi Cup will see 20 yachts participating in three days of races to win the Cup, the Perini Navi Trophy that in the past has been won by the 40mt ketch Principessa Vaivia and by the 88mt clipper The Maltese Falcon.

On top of the Overall Trophy, there will be prizes for the daily regattas with the Marina Yachting, Axa Yachting Solutions and Quadrivio Sgr trophies.

The fleet gathering for the occasion in the waters of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda will range from the 25mt sloop Elettra to the 88mt clipper The Maltese Falcon. Some of the Perini Navi Group’s most recently launched yachts, including the 56mt ketch Fidelis, will also be present.

The ORC rating system will be used and the regatta will be run by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda staff who, since 2009, counts the Perini Navi Cup amongst their most important events.
