Magic Carpet Cubed Takes Overall Victory and Allegra Wins in Multihull Division at Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta

The Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta won the race of the day and the overall victory for Wallycento magic carpet Cube, owned by YCCS member Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones, assisted as always on tactics by Jochen Schuemann. In the Multihull category, the big winner was allegraowned by Adrian Keller and with tactician Paul Larsen, who was beaten in the final race of today’s event by Lord Irvine Laidlaw’s Highland Fling XVII.

The duel between the multihulls allegra and Highland Fling XVII seemed to be heading back to Allegra, but a tactical decision to sail close to shore as they approached the finish line allowed Highland Fling to overtake her rival on the line, by a single second in real time – which would translate to 1 minute and 5 seconds in corrected time.


Competition was no less fierce in the Superyacht division, where Cubed magic carpet was forced to defend the lead in the general classification which she had conquered with a victory on the first day, like her pursuers, Bullit and magic blue firm. With Bullit and magic blue finishing in second and third place today, as well as in the overall standings, the podium places and trophies donated by Giorgio Armani were won by a trio of Wally yachts.

In addition to the Silver Jubilee Cup for the winner of the Superyacht Division, the owner of Magic Cube Mat, Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones, received the YCCS Trophy for the best result among the members of the organizing club and the Pantaenius Trophy for the best start. The Traditional Superyacht Trophies presented by Giorgio Armani went to Unheard of, Ribelle and Morgana respectively. The Southern Wind Trophy was awarded on behalf of the shipyard by Andrea Micheli, to the SW 100′ Morgan.

“I am delighted with the success, both at sea and on land, of our regatta dedicated to superyachts. I want to thank Giorgio Armani for choosing YCCS and Superyacht Regatta,” says Michael Illbruck, YCCS Commodore.

The next edition of the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta is scheduled for 2023, while the next sailing events at YCCS will be Italia Yachts Sailing Week from June 15-18 and the ORC World Championship from June 22-30.
