The Owner and crew of 24m Hoek Design sailing yacht Drumfire were crowned Overall Winner of the 2011 Superyacht Cup in Palma. A spectacular prize giving ceremony at the Es Baluard Museum overlooking the Bay of Palma marked the end of the 16th edition of the popular superyacht regatta.
After showing an early dominance in the regatta with two wins over the first two days, the crew of S/Y Drumfire took to their stride on Day 3 having to settle for second position in the final race behind fellow Hoek Design, the 43m sailing yacht This Is Us. But on overall points, Drumfire’s convincing wins on Day 1 and 2 were enough to clinch the overall prize 7 points ahead of 24m Heartbeat.
The crew were awarded the famous ‘Big Bent Cleat’, the perpetual trophy of the Superyacht Cup since the start of the event.
