Nantucket, August 17, 2015 – For the tenth consecutive year, Italian high-end watchmaker Officine Panerai sponsored the top performance awards for classic sailboat racing at Nantucket’s prestigious and highly anticipated Opera House Cup, which is the culminating event of Nantucket Race Week. The Opera House Cup is the second regatta of the three-part Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC) North American Circuit.

On Sunday morning all 55 yachts registered at the Italian-inspired Panerai Hospitality Lounge situated behind Nantucket Yacht Club, with 51 of the yachts competing for the coveted Panerai prize. Twelve of the racing yachts were first-time Opera House Cup competitors and five were over 100 years old, including two NY-30s AMORITA and CARA MIA who were far ahead of the fleet in the early part of the race and battled neck-n-neck toward the finish with CARA MIA nabbing the duel by a few seconds.
