Regates Royales – Cannes 2016

Skylark finished 3rd Overall at Les Regates Royales in Cannes, one of the premier Panerai events on the classic racing circuit. In probably the most competitive racing fleet of the season, she posted daily scores of 6th, 4th, 1st and 7th (OCS) before that last race was abandoned due to lack of wind.

The highlight of the week was racing alongside her new stable mate, the classic 6 metre yacht Alibaba II. Designed in 1948 by famous Tore Holm for shipowner Sven Salén, Alibaba is one of the most famous 6 metres ever built, participating in the London Olympics in 1948 representing Sweden (Bronze) and also again in Helsinki in 1952 representing Finland (Bronze).
