Video: watch yachts go head-to-head at the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous

The Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous is shaping up to be one of the most exciting races in recent years, with an impressive fleet of 19 yachts already entered and more joining every week.

Organised by Boat International Media and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous gives the world’s finest superyachts three days to race in the BVIs.

The 2015 regatta was the first time the new ORCsy rules had been used since its creation, and it’s no coincidence that last year’s regatta saw a particularly dramatic final day of superyacht racing. On Race Day 3, several yachts still had a decent chance of overall victory. And as the video below shows, competition for first place was fierce:

Racing highlights from the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous

On the first day of racing in 2015, just 70 seconds separated the first three yachts in Class A, with the first and second place in Class B only 31 seconds apart. Race Day 2 offered much of the same nail-biting racing.

The win is very, very special, and I’d say this was the most exciting win of any we’ve ever had

Gerhard Andlinger, owner of P2

Of course, the winner of Class A was P2 and Class B’s winner was Marie. As a delighted Tony Rey, tactician on Marie said: ‘this kind of racing is spectacular. The ORCsy rating rule couldn’t ask for a better soft launch. This event at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda Virgin Gorda was absolutely spectacular.’

There’s still time to register for the 2016 Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous. Everything you need to know about the event can be found on the website www.loropianacaribbeansuperyachtregatta.com.
