The 2015 Perini Navi Cup ended on a highnote this weekend with Rosehearty taking the overall prize.

The 56-metre Rosehearty, which launched in 2006, was rewarded for consistent performances throughout the three days of racing with the overall prize. “Rosehearty is 182-foot long but you’re still sailing and feeling the elements of mother nature. The Perini family are lovely people and their personality is embedded in the boats,” says her tactician Paul Cayard.
