Dubois Cup, Porto Cervo - 28 to 30 May 2015
The inaugural Dubois Cup took place in Palma in 2007 following a conversation between Ed Dubois and a client who suggested the idea of a regatta solely for Dubois yachts. The idea grew and the Dubois Cup was established - an opportunity for owners to enjoy their boats, to put them through their paces and to meet other Dubois owners and friends. The last three editions of the Dubois Cup took place in 2009, 2011 and 2013 at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Sardinia and the 2015 edition again held at and organised in conjunction with the YCCS.

The Superyacht Cup, Palma - 17 to 20 June 2015
Perini Navi Cup, Porto Cervo - 2 to 5 September 2015
The Perini Navi Cup is a regatta dedicated exclusively to Perini yachts that, for a few intense days, gather to challenge each other in the Mediterranean Sea. It has continued to be an event that succeeds in uniting competition and social life in a balanced manner. This is a formula that, after five editions, has attained full maturity and now catalyses the attention of an audience comprised not just of experts in the field. Involvement on a wide scale that has one common denominator: the passion for sailing.
The perfect backdrop for a classic sailing yacht regatta, St Tropez has been hosting Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez for 30 years. Originally known as La Nioulargue, the annual rendezvous of traditional and modern sailing yachts is held in the bay of St Tropez each autumn. The event was first ceated in 1981 when an owner and skipper of two classic yachts raced each other from the foot of the village of St Tropez around the Nioulargo to arrive opposite Club 56 on Pampelonne beach. Today it has become a stunning event for owners to enjoy the power and performance of over 300 sailing yachts in every size, shape and era racing across seven days.
