Awlgrip is pleased to announce our sponsorship of the Pendennis Cup 2014, a unique event for classic and modern superyachts to exhibit their sailing capabilities in the waters of Cornwall. Awlgrip first participated in the biannual Pendennis Cup back in 2008, and we are thrilled to be supporting this classic superyacht regatta once again.
The regatta is being hosted in Falmouth from 26th – 31st May and includes four race days with a full shore-side programme to complement the competitive racing. 2012 saw 13 yachts competing, including an impressive number of 30m+ entries.
With good winds all week, the fleet created a dramatic spectacle in the waters around Falmouth. The event finale saw a spectacular evening ceremony at Pendennis Castle, attended by over 400 guests and crew.
2014 promises to bring an even bigger and better superyacht regatta with Mariette of 1915 returning to defend her title and the remarkable 65m three-masted schooner Adix challenging for the first time since racing in the 2008 Pendennis Cup. In addition, Pendennis-built yachts Rebecca and the delightful 46m Ron Holland ketch Christopher will also be competing against each other.
With a wide range of yachts still confirming interest, the Pendennis Cup is sure to be one of the Superyacht highlights of the year.
