PANERAI

THE CLASSIC YACHTS CHALLENGE – CELEBRATING THE BOND WITH THE SEA!


The Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge has long been acknowledged as the leading international circuit for classic and vintage sailing yachts. Celebrating its 13th outing in 2017, the circuit spans 10 of the world’s most fascinating and maritime tradition-rich regattas on a calendar that has become a reference point for lovers of the stunning beauty, glorious history and absolute uniqueness of all classic craft.

As per tradition, the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge rounds in France (Antibes, Cannes), Italy (Argentario) and Spain (Mahon on the island of Minorca) comprise the Mediterranean Circuit. The yachts participating in each of the events on the Circuit build up points which go towards winning the overall Trophy.

APPLAUD THE WINNERS!

Hallowe’en (Big Boats) Linnet (Vintage Yachts) and Ganbare (Classic Yachts) emerged as the winners on September 30 of the three season trophies for the 13th Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge at the end of the 39th Régates Royales de Cannes. In doing so, the trio added their names to the roll of honour of the leading international classic sailing circuit which has been sponsored by the prestige Florentine luxury sports watch maker since 2005.
The French regatta was the fourth and final stage on the Mediterranean Circuit after stages at Antibes (FR), Porto Santo Stefano (ITA) and Mahon (ESP). Around 90 craft sailed into Cannes for the event. All five scheduled races went ahead on courses that varied in layout and length.
