Make sure to save the date for the 23rd running of Europe's largest and longest-running superyacht regatta from 19–22 June 2019.

Our 23rd edition will again offer yacht owners, their friends, captains, crews and sponsors the opportunity to meet in an idyllic setting both on and off the water.

The successful 2018 event reunited old friends and rivals along with several newcomers among the 17-strong fleet.

The final outcome of the 2018 Superyacht Cup was in the balance until the final moments of competition. An absorbing final day concluded with two very different superyachts tied on points for the overall trophy, with the venerable J Class yacht Velsheda edging out the record-breaking Class B super-ketch Mari-Cha III on countback alone.

With racing across four classes several other magnificent superyachts also got a share of the limelight.

The lightweight carbon flyer Win Win repeated her 2017 Class A winning performance, while the impressive 50m ketch Silencio took Class C.

Another ketch, Q, emerged as winner of the newly added non-spinnaker Corinthian Class.

Planning is already well underway for the 2019 celebration of superyacht racing, with organisers again focused on constantly improving a regatta that has gone from strength to strength since it started in 1997.

"The Superyacht Cup has grown and evolved its own unique atmosphere over the years," said Event Director Kate Branagh.

"It is a reunion event for many of our regular participants, and a real family gathering that offers a warm welcome to every member of the international superyacht community.

"As ever, the 23rd Superyacht Cup next year will offer competitive racing and an informal, relaxed social programme in equal measure. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back!"
