A month of regattas in June for Vitter Yachts
On 13 June superyachts will race during the 35th America’s Cup, with the Superyacht Regatta running alongside the America’s Cup race schedule for only the second time in Cup history. The fleet includes Vitters 43.6 metre newly-launched J-Class, Svea, at 43.60 metres, the longest of the current J-Class fleet. She’ll then go on to compete in the America’s Cup J-Class event on 16, 19, 20 June, and then onward to the Newport J-Class World Championships, held from 21-26 August.
On the Bay of Palma from 21-24 June, Vitters yachts fresh from the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta Porto Cervo, will line up to compete in Europe’s longest running superyacht regatta, the Superyacht Cup Palma.
Ribelle and Inoui will join the fleet with Ribelle doing her best to one up her second placing in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta at the end of May. It’s her first appearance in the Superyacht Cup Palma, while Inoui is a favourite among regatta spectators and will be seeking to top her third placing in last year’s edition of the Cup.
It follows an already busy season for our fleet with Ganesha and Ningaloo competing in the 2017 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and then the St Barth’s Bucket. They were joined in the Bucket by 46 metre Unfurled for the 15-18 March regatta, while fellow Vitters yacht, Koo secured first place overall in the Les Voiles Blanche class.
