June 14, 2018 · Posted by kate

Porto Cervo (June 13, 2018) – The 130’ MY SONG built by Baltic, designed by Reichel Pugh and Nauta, achieved three first places in three races claiming first overall in Class “A”. MY SONG also claimed the Silver Jubilee Trophy, reserved for the top superyacht from both classes over 100 feet long, and the award for the top placed yacht owned by a YCCS member.

Organized by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in the waters of Porto Cervo in Sardinia, the “Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta” offered a spectacular show, with some hard-fought races following the first days when races were cancelled due to lack of wind. Owner Pier Luigi Loro Piana commented, “Sardinia in this season is always fantastic, and today has made up to everyone present for the uncertainties of the first few days. I’m also sorry for the many owners who were unable to be present for this edition, and I would like to take this opportunity to invite them here for the next one. Finally, I want to thank my crew for the great job they did on tuning the boat, they deserve the credit for this victory.”

Reichel/Pugh collaborated with Baltic Yachts, Nauta Design, Gurit and MCM project management to produce one of the most remarkable state-of-the-art, all carbon superyachts ever launched. My Song is not only the latest high-performance, genuine multi-role super sailing yacht to be launched by, but she also benefits from a plethora of new ideas taking the cruiser/racer genre to a new level. Read about the technical side in the Seahorse Magazine article Not Simple as RP Designer, Naval Architect and Structural Engineer David Oliver writes about how he got his first grey hairs.

This past winter, My Song won the International Superyacht Society’s 2017 award for the Best Sailing Yacht between 24m and 40m, which followed wins in the World Superyacht Awards for Best Sailing Yacht between 30m and 39.9m and at the Showboats Design Awards in which she was voted Most Innovative Sailing Yacht and took the Best Exterior Design and Styling award.
