Sail-World.com : Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup 2011

Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup 2011

'International Maxi Association'    International Maxi Association
Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup - The International Maxi Association (IMA) is pleased to announce some news about the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup, the transoceanic crossing of the Atlantic for maxi yachts leaving towards Caribbean at the end of the Mediterranean sailing season.

As usual (the first edition was run in 2007) the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup will start by the end of November from Tenerife, but in agreement with the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda the finishing line has been moved from St. Maarten, Antilles, to British Virgin Islands, more precisely to British Virgin Gorda, where is actually under construction a new clubhouse – and marina – of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. The arrival of the fleet and the prizegiving should match with the opening and inauguration of the new YCCS clubhouse.

The Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup will be open to all IMA maxi categories. Real Club Nautico Tenerife has already confirmed his support for starting operation.

Simultaneously to the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup, the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda will organize a new event leaving as well from Tenerife on the same day: the Transatlantic Superyacht Regatta, reserved to maxi boats with LOA upper than 30.51, boats more cruising than racing-oriented. Royal British Virgin Islands Yacht Club will support the arrival operations.

The two events will therefore gather both in Tenerife and later in Virgin Gorda a spectacular maxi fleet, while the coordination among the two O.A. will ensure an excellent level of logistic and technical assistance. Prizes and special trophies will be awarded both to the winner of the IMA scorings and to participants among the Superyacht fleet.

With still many months to the event, several maxi yachts have already confirmed their entry to the IMA, like the wally Y3K belonging to Claus Peter Offen, IMA president, the new supermaxi Hetairos, owner Otto Happel – IMA vice president - Will Apold’s Valkyrie, Sojana - owner Peter Harris; Sojana is the winner of 2010 edition – and Karl C. Kwok’s Beau Geste, winner of 2009 regatta and record holder. New entry at the event, the Volvo 60 AmberSail.

The Notice o Race of the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup 2011 will be soon available on the IMA website:
