After the fantastic success of its inaugural edition in 2008, Boat International Media and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) Porto Cervo have opened registration for the second annual Boat International Superyacht Regatta. It will be held from June 9-13, 2009. Racing, on the famed emerald waters off Sardinia’s northeastern coast, has been extended to include a fourth day of competition for the fleet, which will again boast many of the most impressive racing super yachts in existence.

Participating yachts must have a minimum LOA of 24 metres (approximately 80′). The yachts are into Performance and Cruising categories, with fleet starts for the Performance category and pursuit starts for the Cruising superyachts. Both fleets will race under the IRC rating system through the islands of the La Maddalena Archipelago, with the courses set by the YCCS Race Committee based on each day’s meteorological conditions.

Neville Crichton’s 30.48 metre (98′) Alfa Romeo (NZL) was the overall winner in the 2008 race. She dominated in the Performance Division butwill need to work hard if she is to defend her title with a challenge from two sailing giants who have already expressed their interest in participating again – the 100′ Y3K and the Ed Dubois-designed 44 metre (144′) Salperton (GBR).

Other yachts such as the 35 metre (115′) Hamilton II (GBR) and the Farr-designed Southern Wind 100 Farewell (ITA) have already assured their place in the fleet and a chance of winning the Boat International Silver Trophy by registering online.

Registration for the event is currently open and early registration is advised, as a maximum of only 30 entries will be accepted.
