The grand season of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, the most widely recognised international circuit of regattas reserved for classical and vintage yachts, will begin at the end of May in Antibes (France).
As for the past years, the 14th edition will host a rich programme, featuring ten regattas around the most fascinating Mediterranean destinations and along the shores of New England, in the United States.
Officine Panerai renews its international commitment to classic sailing, a truly exclusive community bringing together sailing enthusiasts from across the world sharing their passion for the sea and the respect for traditions. Every leg of the season becomes a showcase for the “great ladies” of the sea adding touches of colour to the docks and shores hosting the circuit.
Once again, one of the star protagonists of the Mediterranean Circuit will be Eilean, the Bermudian ketch purchased and restored by Officine Panerai in 2006, now acting as international ambassador of classic sailing and of the annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives supported by Panerai, in cooperation with not-for-profit organisations.
Furthermore, the watchmaking brand has just announced another unmissable season appointment for all classic sailing enthusiasts: the Panerai Transat Classique 2019, a transatlantic regatta for vintage sailing yachts from Lanzarote to Christophe Harbour in St Kitts. The yachts will gather on January 8th 2019 in Arrecife, the island’s capital town, and will sail on to Christophe Harbour in the Lesser Antilles.
