In pictures: The Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2017 parties


The Welcome Cocktail

June 2017 once again saw another brilliant Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta take place at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. Alongside all the fantastic racing, a glittering programme of social events took place allowing old friends and regatta rivals to catch up against the stunning backdrop of the Sardinian coastline. Boat International Media would like to thank our sponsors and partners, Loro Piana, NetJets, Baltic Yachts, Pantaenius Yacht Insurance and Tai Ping, for helping make the 2017 regatta a huge success.
