Organizers of the Caribbean’s only Superyacht rendezvous and regatta have added a new racing division to include catamarans in a four-day Spring event, March 14 -17, 2012, in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).
Boat International and Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the organizers of the 2012 Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous announced the addition of a catamaran category to the second edition of this unique event.
The racing will now be divided into three classes: performance, cruising and catamaran, with the entire fleet competing for the overall winner of Silver Cup, the Boat International Media Trophy, made by Garrard of London.
Organizers hope to bring together owners of motor yachts and luxury sailing charter vessels for four days of racing, fun activities and glittering social events in the idyllic surroundings of Virgin Gorda and her neighboring islands.
Participants of the 2012 Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous will be among the first to experience the brand new Clubhouse at YCCS Virgin Gorda Marina, and enjoy the fabulous facilities of Oil Nut Bay, making this event a truly unique occasion not be missed.
Participation is open to sail and motor yachts over 80ft, and catamarans longer than 60ft. Sail yacht Marie, Salperton, P2, and sail yacht Twizzle have already expressed their intention to participate.
