THE COPA DEL REY PANERAI CROWNS ITS VICTORS

August 2015

Moonbeam IV (Big Boats), Rowdy (Marconi Rig Vintage), Argos (Classic) and Calima (Spirit of Tradition) are the award winners after three days of intense competition on the waters of Menorca.  

The Copa del Rey Panerai, organised by the Club Marítimo de Mahón and the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona, closed its 12th edition today most spectacularly, with a final regatta in which the Gregale (NE wind) proved to be more generous than on the two previous days. The fleet completed a final run of 17.5 nautical miles along the north coast of Menorca, which brought this year’s competition to a fabulous close, in which half a hundred vessels from 12 countries competed. This year once again plainly confirmed the importance of an event that classic and vintage ship owners consider ‘essential’. 

On Saturday night, a Price-giving ceremony was celebrated  in the terrace of Club Marítimo de Mahón were winners of each class not only received an engraved silver platted trophy but also an exclusive Panerai watch. 

Not  only  did the Copa del Rey Panerai offered unique racing moments and the chance to admire the fleet, the regatta also offereded an entertaining social programme for the competing crews from Wednesday to Saturday. The Panerai Lounge, based at the terrace of Club Marítimo Mahón, provided healthy breakfasts in the morning and a drinks reception every evening to celebrate the journey. 

The last stage of the Mediterranean circuit for the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge will take place in France, with the Régates Royales de Cannes, from 22th to 26th September.
