On May 30th, the second yacht challenge in the Panerai series took place in Les Voiles de Antibes. The competition takes place over a five-day span in which yacht enthusiasts sail the coastal waters of the Mediterranean in a regatta or compete in match races against other crews. For eight years in a row, Officine Panerai has sponsored this event—the largest international circuit of regattas for classic yachts.
Yachts are divided into four categories: Vintage Yachts, Classic Yachts, Metric Classes (which is reserved for former yachts in the Olympics cup) and Spirit of Tradition, modern yachts built along classic lines. The fleet of stunning yachts race against each other in atmospheres famously known for history, beauty and culture.
Up next for sailing devotees will be the Panerai British Classis Week, taking place July 7th-14th in the UK.
