Signalling the start of the Mediterranean superyacht season, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta 2015 opened today, with seasoned racers including S/Y OHANA and S/Y MARIE participating in the regatta.

Originating from 2008, and organised by the Yacht Club Costa Sme (YCCS), the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta each year attracts a growing number of luxury yachts to Sardinia to compete in four gripping days of racing.
