A wonderful regatta – tough and extremely varied, with weather conditions that can only be described as extremely variable, and constant sea changes in a landscape of rare and wild beauty, like the sea around the Aeolian Islands in spring.
Owner SW82 Grande Orazio
With first place in the Maxi category and third place overall, SW82 Grande Orazio made its debut at the Volcano Race 2015, a prestigious offshore regatta for superyachts organised by the International Maxi Association (IMA). Departing from Gaeta on Wednesday 20th May, the fleet travelled the famous ‘route of the volcanoes’ without restrictions.
This fascinating journey of around 500 miles leads one between the natural ‘buoys’ of Alicudi, Vulcano, Stromboli, Strombolicchio, Capri and Ischia. Line of Honours was given to Esimit Europa 2, which crossed the finish line on Friday morning, followed only a few hours later by Wild Joe and Grande Orazio, which came in third place on corrected time and took the centre step of the podium in the Maxi category.
