From 2019 Superyacht Cup Palma:
Win Win lived up to her name once again and emerged as the overall victor of the Superyacht Cup, with class winners Topaz and Bequia also able to celebrate their success after three days of close racing and enjoyable socialising ashore.
The final St. Regis Race was held on what proved to be the clearest day of the 23rdedition of Europe’s longest-running superyacht regatta, the Mallorcan mountains providing a stunning backdrop to the drama being played out on the water.
After a short delay to allow the sea breeze to establish itself the race committee launched the fleet on the deciding contest of the event.
In Class A the 33m Win Win was able to secure her third successive victory, this one by the narrow margin of just 33 seconds on corrected time ahead of Nilaya with Open Season third in the race and overall in the class. The triumph is a second SYC win for the Javier Jaudenes designed Baltic Yacht built boat, which also topped the table in 2016.
Her delighted skipper Ryan Taylor said: “It’s great and we are very happy – we worked for it and it wasn’t easy, but it was nice clean racing and we just kept it simple. The owner is very happy!”
