The dockside in Porto Cervo is starting to buzz with the arrival of a fleet of Perini yachts for the seventh Perini Navi Cup.
Tomorrow, Thursday September 20, a total of 12 sailing yachts will set off for the first of three days of regattas in the event, while the other 9 participating yachts, including multiple award-winning 70-meter ketch Sybaris and 55-meter motor yacht Galileo G, will contribute to the atmosphere of the competition as spectators and take part in all the events organised to celebrate this incredible family reunion. Numerous private events will enliven the evenings of everyone involved, with onboard cocktail contests, the traditional yacht hop, wine tastings and show cooking sessions, crowned by the award ceremony and a gala dinner.
“We want this seventh edition of the Perini Navi Cup to provide a unique festive opportunity for us to share the passion for the sea that unites the entire Perini Navi family with our owners and friends,” commented Lamberto Tacoli, Perini Navi Chairman and CEO. “It’s so exciting to see the dockside in Porto Cervo packed with Perini yachts in a rare show of unparalleled beauty that will contribute to making the coming days unforgettable ones.”
