Superyachts gather for Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous

28 sail and motor superyachts are berthed at the YCCS Virgin Gorda in preparation for the start of the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous today.

The second edition of this event, organised by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and Boat International Media, has attracted some of the most powerful and iconic sailing yachts on the water for three days of racing, expertly organised by the YCCS Race Committee under the leadership of Principal Race Officer Peter Craig.

Jim Clark is back to defend his title with the 42m J-Class Hanuman built by Royal Huisman, competing against Vitters’ 44m sloop Lady B and the 35m fast ketch Sojana which return as challengers in 2012.

Racing alongside Lady B will be four other Dubois designed yachts: the 44.8m fast cruiser Salperton, 39m Ganesha and 49.6m Zefira – all built by Fitzroy Yachts – and the 36.5m Bliss from Yachting Developments.

Bob Eichler, owner of the 29.25 Altair – participating in his first superyacht regatta – is thrilled to be in the BVI for this exclusive event: “It’s absolutely amazing. The YCCS is fabulous and beyond my expectations,” he said. The owners of Zefira, meanwhile, wished fair winds for all and declared: 'May the best man win!'

New entries completing the fleet are Andrea Recordati’s 30.8m Wally Indio, the Philippe Briand designed 38m sloop P2, Huisman’s 34.7m Billy Budd, the 54.5 Marie built by Vitters and Classen Shipyard’s 35m new F-class Firefly.

As the sailing yachts prepare for three days of racing around the stunning archipelago, an impressive display of motor yachts will be turning out to follow the fleet and enjoy the spectacle of the regatta, as well as enjoying their own social programme alongside the sailing during the day.
