The Marco Vogele’s owned green sailing yacht called GLISS is the overall winner of the Horus Superyacht Cup in Palma 2009. This follows the superyacht’s recent first place in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2009 in Sardinia.

The last day of the Palma Superyacht Cup brought ideal sailing conditions with a 17 knot sea breeze. Finishing in 9th place in the spectacular final race was enough to bring sweet success for the Philippe Briand designed 32m sailing sloop Gliss, built by Royal Huisman.

The Top Three Rankings for the Palma Superyacht Cup 2009:

1 – GLISS
2 – ANTARA
3 – Wally Open Season

The Fife designed gaff cutter Sunshine which was built in Thailand in 2003 was the first yacht off the start line and the first across the finish line. Second was the first day winner Perini Navi sailing yacht Antara and in third place was the Doug Peterson designed Jongert called Ithaka.

The overnight leader was the new Bill Tripp designed superyacht, which was built by Baltic Yachts, called Black Pearl. However sailing yacht Black Pearl couldn’t hold her number one position overall when she finished 11th, after Tenaz, giving her 6th in the overall ranking. In the overall positions Antara and the Wally Open Season took 2nd and 3rd places.

The Yachting World sponsor ‘performance trophy for the best starts’ in the three race pursuit series went to Black Pearl.
