Open Season was originally built under the WallyCento box rule but last winter she underwent a significant refit to enhance her competitiveness in the Wally racing circuit.
Major work included lengthening her by 2 metres, and increasing her draft from 6.2 to 7 metres.
Open Season emerged from her refit to win four of the five regattas on the 2015 circuit. This also meant she won the overall Wally trophy.
Her owner is the current International Maxi Association president and he will be hoping for another strong year. He is passionate about the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, having participated many times with both Open Season and with his previous Wally, now named Sensei.
