Manon Borrius Broek, the Owner on board Heartbeat yacht was over the moon with the result, she bought the 23.8m Claasen yacht specifically big enough (and still the smallest in the fleet) so that she could enter the Superyacht Cup. “It was our dream to participate in the Superyacht regatta, we have been fine tuning for 3 years and are now the winners. We are very happy.”
In Class 1, charter yacht Highland Breeze ranked first overall in front of charter yacht P2 and charter yacht Salperton. However competition was tough in the last legs of today’s final race; Salperton had the edge on P2 and Rebecca yacht as they rounded the final mark, however lost out to P2 over the line as they had to put a final gybe in to lay the line.
Luxury yacht Freya has put in some consistent results over the event, Mike Toppa the tactician aboard summed up the general feeling of the event perfectly; “We have been having a ball, the sailing here is fantastic. The Owner has never raced before and is doing a great job at driving his boat, he is here with his friends and family and having a brilliant time.”
