The 2016 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous brought together the owners and guests of some of the world's greatest sailing and motor yachts for three days of thrilling racing and a brilliant social programme. Following some dramatic action during the Loro Piana Race Day, the Owner's Dinner gave guests a chance to catch up and discuss the day's sailing at the regatta's most glittering event.

The evening began with a cocktail reception at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda Virgin Gorda. Guests gathered on the outdoor terrace to enjoy champagne and take in the stunning views over the marina.
