WINDFALL, the second SW94 of the successful collaboration with Reichel Pugh, has concluded the Mediterranean regatta season with outstanding performance, again proving Southern Wind’s prowess on the racing circuit.
Those attending and racing in this year Maxi Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, were certainly not disappointed! A nail biting and highly competitive regatta saw Southern Wind’s WINDFALL and GRANDE ORAZIO battling it out for the top spot over the course of the three days. WINDFALL took three 1st places making her overall winner of the acclaimed Rolex prize and time piece. The SW82 GRANDE ORAZIO, winner of the last two editions of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, came in a strong second by just one point.
WINDFALL continued her competitive streak two weeks later at the inaugural and season closing Voiles De St Tropez. Despite a podium finish being just out of reach, WINDFALL finished in fourth scoring the same points of MY SONG, another successful product of the Reichel Pugh design studio.
The superyacht racing season may have finished in the Mediterranean, but it is only just beginning in the Caribbean! WINDFALL is all set to compete in the RORC Transatlantic Regatta as well as the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and the St Barth Bucket in March. She we will also be among the first participating in the inaugural edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Caribbean Cup.
The race is on!
