After the resounding success of Les Voiles d’Antibes, the classic and vintage sailing circuit moves today to Italy and the stunning Monte Argentario bay in Tuscany, for the only Italian round of the 2017 season of the international Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge sponsored by Officine Panerai.

For the first time in the regatta’s history, the 40-plus yachts, divided into Classic, Vintage, Big Boats, Spirit of Tradition, Metre and One Design Classes, will compete in four races (one per day) rather than the three races that were the rule until 2016.

The shore events begin today, Wednesday June 14th, and racing will take place in the bay off Porto Santo Stefano finishing with the prize-giving ceremony that will be held after the final race on Sunday, June 18, on the Molo della Pilarella wharf where the fleet will be moored.
