Oyster Marine to sponsor Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in 2010
Boat International Media are delighted to welcome acclaimed yacht builders Oyster Marine as sponsor of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2010, which will take place in Porto Cervo on 8 – 12 June 2010.
Oyster Marine was founded in 1973 and has established itself as an international market leader of world-class cruising yachts. With their distinctive Deck Saloon design, Oyster yachts are recognised throughout the sailing world for quality, comfort and performance. Today, the Oyster fleet represents several design generations, each one building on the experience and success of its predecessor. The company's business is truly international and Oyster has already won two Queen's Awards, Britain's top industrial accolade.
Oyster Marine’s impeccable level of customer service is proven by the loyalty of their clients - over half of Oyster’s new builds are delivered to existing owners which sends a strong message to new customers thinking of joining ‘the Oyster family’.
David Tydeman, CEO of Oyster Marine, commented: “For the last 10 years, Oyster has run exclusive regatta’s for Oyster owners to enjoy sailing their yachts together and we have always valued the way these events form part of the pleasure of owning a yacht. As we enter the superyacht arena with the first Oyster superyachts on the water in late 2010 and early 2011, we recognise that the owners of the Oyster 100’s and 125’s will wish to take part in other superyacht events as well as our own exclusive Oyster regattas. We hope that in the future we’ll have several Oysters taking part in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta. Planning ahead, I’m therefore delighted to start building the relationship between Oyster and the Loro Piana event.”
Organised over 5 days on Sardinia’s breathtaking Emerald Coast, this is a competitive, fun-spirited regatta which welcomes sailing yachts over 24 metres. An impressive fleet of some of the most famous sailing yachts on the water will race under the IRC rating system. Courses and classes will be set by the YCCS Race Committee to accommodate all yachts across the fleet, from classics to maxis.
A busy social programme of festivities organised by Boat International Media and YCCS will ensure that owners, their guests, captains and crew are every bit as entertained ashore, with events including a glamorous beach party at the Hotel Romazzino, the Loro Piana Owners Dinner at YCCS and the much anticipated Prize Giving ceremony in the Piazza Azzurra.
EARLY REGISTRATION IS ADVISED AS A MAXIMUM OF ONLY 30 ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
