Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous - Day 3

'Nilaya, Division A winner - Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous 2014'    Carlo Borlenghi/Superyacht Media

After three days of picture perfect sailing Nilaya (Class A), Freya (Class B) and Moonbird (Class C) have been crowned winners in their respective divisions at the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous 2014.

Second place in Division A went to the J-Class Rainbow, on equal points with the 50 metre Fitzroy sloop Ohana in third. Division B runner up was the 57.5-metre ketch Twizzle ahead of the 55-metre Vitters ketch Marie. Division C silverware went to the 31-metre Dubois-designed sloop Sarafin, just one point behind the winner Moonbird, while the 27.4 -metre Tempus Fugit, built by Arkin Pruva, took third place. The Boat International Media Trophy for the event went to the 34-metre Nilaya, designed by Reichel-Pugh and built by Baltic Yachts.

The YCCS Race Committee set a custom course for today's third and final race which took the fleet west from the start off Necker island to round the Dog Islands to starboard before heading further westward and rounding back to Necker and the finish.

The 40 metre Rainbow, chartered by Pier Luigi Loro Piana and with Francesco de Angelis and Brad Butterworth on board, took victory in today's race among the division A boats. Nilaya claimed second place leaving her with an impressive one – one - two scoreline and overall victory.

Filip Balcaen of Nilaya was pleased with the result despite some difficulties in today's race: 'It is a fantastic place to race, good winds, nice competition, incredible boats so we really enjoyed it although today we had a bad race. We had a big problem at the upwind mark so downwind we were not able to hoist our code zero. Anyway the good thing was we only lost three minutes and in the end we came second which is not that bad and we won the whole regatta in our class.'

In division B the Frers-designed Swan 90 Freya took her second bullet today and notched up an equally impressive one – two - one scoreline while Twizzle claimed second place today and overall.

Owner Don Macpherson was thrilled with Freya's win: I couldn't be happier. One year ago we were here and we came in last! Over this past year we have worked very hard and for us to come in first today was just so rewarding, we're delighted. The crew has really pulled together, we've kept the same core guys and I take my hat off to our tactician Mike Toppa who has been a great help.'

The 37-metre Fitzroy Yachts sloop Moonbird, with designer Ed Dubois on board, also claimed her second bullet today, sealing the fate of the 31-metre Sarafin which placed second in today's race and the division overall.

Moonbird's owner thoroughly enjoyed the event: 'My first reaction is to thank everyone for organizing such a beautiful regatta and for getting together such an exceptional gathering of superyachts. We had very friendly and super professional racing so I really enjoyed it, it was really fantastic. What we like here is the flat water, 15 to 20 knots, ideal for most of us.'

Prizes for the top three boats in each division were awarded by Riccardo Bonadeo, YCCS Commodore, Pier Luigi Loro Piana, Roberto Kerkoc, Vice-President of the Board of Directors of YCCS, and Tony Harris of Boat International Media.

At the final prizegiving ceremony YCCS Commodore, Riccardo Bonadeo, expressed his satisfaction at the week's proceedings: 'Each year we think this event simply cannot get any better, but I am happy to report that each year we are proved wrong! I feel honoured to say that I have received a great number of compliments from owners and crew here on the docks. Excellent race organization, perfect sailing conditions and superb social events have made this an unforgettable week for everyone involved. Alongside our title sponsor Loro Piana, my thanks go to the YCCS management and staff whose hard work continues to make this, along with Porto Cervo, one of the best race venues in the world. We look forward to welcoming all of these boats for the Mediterranean event in June.'

Pier Luigi Loro Piana was equally happy: 'We had a fantastic regatta, fantastic weather and great sea conditions, the best possible ones for racing. It's a pleasure, as a sponsor, to see this event growing. There are more boats, more people and the level of technical skills is really high, my compliments and my thanks go to the real stars of this event, the sailors who participate.'

The Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta will take place at the YCCS in Porto Cervo from June 3rd to seventh.
