Superyachts have all to play for on the final day of racing at the Loro Piana Caribbean regatta
by Tim Thomas
It’s another blue sky day out in Virgin Gorda, BVI, and the fleet is eager to get out on the water for what will be the final day of racing at the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous, organised by Boat International Media and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda.
There is all to play for today, with the Southern Wind Cape Arrow and 45m Fitzroy-built Salperton tied for first place in Division A, and with the Briand-designed Perini P2 just two points behind.
In Division B, the giants of Athos and Parsifal III lie in first and fourth, with the relative minnows Bolero and Sarafin sandwiched between at second and third respectively
The winds look similar to yesterday with a solid 10 knots of breeze blowing across North Sound as the committee boat heads out to the start area, and the word is that today’s race will be another jaunt around the island.
