WIND’S UP AT DAY 3 OF THE SOUTHERN WIND RENDEZVOUS AND TROPHY
Porto Cervo, June 3, 2022
Perfect breeze and balmy temperatures: Day three was all about the joy of sailing in the lovely Costa Smeralda.
Who could ask for more? Day 3 saw the fleet sail a custom course that wound its way through some of the most spectacular scenery that the Costa Smeralda can offer. After 23nm of fun on the water, the fleet dropped anchor off the world-famous beach at Budelli to enjoy lunch and pose for a group photo. While part of the Rendezvous fleet headed back to port, Sorceress, Feelin’ Good and Ammonite couldn’t resist organising another race from Budelli to Porto Cervo only arriving back to port windswept and undeniably happy.
In the words of the Owners of SW96 Sorceress, experienced sailors who travelled from North America with friends to attend, the Rendezvous is a unique kind of celebration: “It’s a about a community built around special bonds. We’re here for these very special boats and to witness the evolution of yachting. Southern Wind builds great vessels with transatlantic capacity that are still fun to sail fast. I want to offer my congratulations on a job done well,” they said.
Owners and their crews will dance to their heart’s content tonight at the Crew Party that will be held in the Piazza Azzurra. Tomorrow will be the final day of racing.
