Gliss returns to defend her title at the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2010
March 8, 2010
With preparations now well underway for the Loro Piana Superyacht
Regatta 2010, the list of yachts planning to compete at this year's
event is growing almost daily.
We are thrilled to announce that Royal Huisman's 32 metre Gliss,
designed by Philippe Briand, will be returning to defend her title.
After four days of exhilarating racing on the dazzling, turquoise
waters of the Costa Smeralda in 2009, her delighted owner was presented
with the Loro Piana Prize Overall, the Silver Jubilee Cup by Boat
The latest yachts to register include Southern Ocean Marine's 32 metre Liara and the 30 metre, Frers Designed Wally Dark Shadow. We are also pleased to welcome back Barry Houghton racing on his new, Dubois designed, Fitzroy built 45 metre Salperton
- "I am delighted to be returning to Porto Cervo this year with my new
Salperton for the Loro Piana Regatta. The fleet registered so far will
make for exciting competition and I have no doubt that the teams at
Boat International Media and Yacht Club Costa Smeralda will once again
put on a fantastic social programme."

Our group of diverse sponsors are joined by three new collaborators in
2010: Pantaenius Yacht Insurance, Sardinia Yacht Services and North
Sardinia Yacht Services will be on hand to assist all yachts and guests
during the Regatta and will be hosting a Crew Party with us in
celebration of their 10th Birthday.
Martin Baum, Managing Director of Pantaenius, says “The fact that Porto
Cervo happens to be one of the best sailing regatta areas in the world
makes this event more exciting if not less dangerous from an insurance
point of view. Pantaenius simply must be there.”
The Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta is open to sailing yachts of 24
metres and above and we look forward to welcoming a diverse fleet to
Porto Cervo. Courses and classes will be set to accommodate all entries
across the fleet enabling the owners to enjoy their own yacht to its
full purpose and potential. There will be a Pursuit Start for the
Cruising Class and a Fleet Start for the Performance Class.
