The Southern Wind 25th Anniversary Rendezvous and Trophy took place from May 24th to 25th 2016: a warm and heartfelt reunion, an exuberant celebration and a thrilling regatta have been made more special by the lovely scenery and gracious hospitality that Capri offered.
I came with three generations of my family and have found participating in this event to be very nice.
I’m especially happy to be here with the club I’m Commodore of, the Circolo Canottieri Aniene.
I commissioned Illusion in 2005 and have been participating in the Trophies and following Southern Wind Shipyard’s evolution since then
This has been a wonderful event. I was really moved when Willy Persico gave his speech about the shipyard’s history
I like the atmosphere that Willy and his team create at these events and I come for the fun, not to win at all costs.
A week ago we didn’t know how Seawave would perform as a racing boat, but now I can say she has real promise in the world of superyacht regattas
The Southern Wind Trophy is the perfect event. Aboard Whisper we have been sailing well, not making any mistakes and getting better every day.
Moving onto the larger boats is a bit of a learning curve: everything has to be in place to keep things fun and safe.
We came here with our family and a group of friends to meet other owners and share some stories.

It’s wonderful to see what good relationships everyone shares from Willy Persico, to the owners and crews to all the Southern Wind staff
