First place winner of the first ASR Winner’s Cup was S/Y Aphrodite, a 28m Vitters, followed by S/Y Tiara, a 56m Alloy Yachts, S/Y Bliss, a 37m Yachting Developments, and S/Y Dallinghoo, a 30m S.A. Pritchard.

Other participants included S/Y Dunia Baru, a 51m Konjo Boat Builders, M/Y Vie San Soucis, a 40m King Knight, M/Y Azul A, a 34m Moonen, and a 33m motoryacht.
Crew also competed in the Benetti Challenge, a model yacht competition, as well as attended a cocktail party on S/Y Dunia Baru. The event was organized and co-sponsored by Asia Pacific Superyachts.
“This is one of the few regattas in the world that allows both motor and sailing yachts (75-feet and longer) to participate alongside each other, with sailing superyachts racing on a course marked by power superyachts,” Fabio Ermetto, Benetti CCO, said in a press release.
M/Y Azul A served as committee boat for the race and Capt. Simon Blundell accepted the trophy on behalf of his crew at a gala dinner.
