Maltese Falcon Clinches Overall Victory In Perini Navi Cup

An odd but probably fun regatta for mega sailing yachts built by Perini Navi. Most – really all – Perini Navi’s are luxurious, heavy sailing yachts, fitted with posh, paneled accommodations. Many are sailed from a pilothouse or flybridge, with spa pools, enormous tenders and four-star service. Not exactly hard core racing. Their performance is best described as  “leisurely” – not sure if any merit “sparkling”  or “zippy.”

Kind of like racing around Watkins Glen in a flock of  Bentleys. But the shore parties must have been fun.
