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.
