Charter Yacht Velacarina wins the Pendennis Cup 2014
Charter Yacht Velacarina wins the 2014 Pendennis Cup after four days of competitive racing in Falmouth.
The fourth edition of the Pendennis Cup took place in Falmouth from 26th - 31st May 2014. Organised by Pendennis Shipyard every two years the racing was managed by the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and Race Officer Peter Craig.
2014 saw 11 yachts with a combined length of over 320m compete over four days, including the 64m three-masted schooner ADIX, 46m ketch CHRISTOPHER, 42m ketch REBECCA, 42m gaff schooner MARIETTE of 1915 and 26m ketch VELACARINA. This dramatic regatta showcases modern and classic superyachts as they fight against each other for the honours, exploiting clever tactics to rise to the challenging sailing conditions presented by UK waters, balancing the extremes of tide and weather.
A full shore-side programme showcases the very best in Cornish cuisine and hospitality to complement the competitive racing. The 2014 regatta culminated in a spectacular display by the Red Arrows watched by thousands of spectators on the shore and hundreds of yachts surrounding the racing fleet.
