The fleet for the forthcoming Pendennis Cup has just been announced, and it includes some very impressive yachts.
A growing fleet is expected this year with Mariette of 1915 returning to defend her title, challenged by the 65m three-masted schooner Adix. Also competing will be Pendennis-built yachts Rebecca and Christopher. These yachts will be joined by Breakaway and Velacarina, with previous winner Adela keen to return.
The 2014 Pendennis Cup will take place from the May 26th to 31st in Falmouth, UK. The four race days are supported by a range of shore-side events providing a fantastic opportunity for the guests, sponsors and crews to reflect on the day's racing whilst enjoying the best hospitality, entertainment and cuisine that Cornwall has to offer.
Full details of the event, with an overview of the fleet, race results and sponsor listings, can be followed at www.thependenniscup.com.
