Saint Tropez, France – The Les Voiles de Saint Tropez ended the Wally Class racing season and determined the winner of the 2014 racing series. The calendar included four events (Gaastra Palmavela, the new Menorca Maxi, Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez), and all of them had a high participation of yachts: it was a record year that celebrated the 15th anniversary of the iconic Wally Class, the epitome of super yacht racing.
The racing was exhilarating and highly competitive in every regatta with Magic Blue and Galma, showing impressive improvement since last year, Y3K coming back into the circuit after two years, and Angels' share too.
Since the opening of the season in Gaastra Palmavela, Magic Carpet Cubed turned out to be the leading team. First to cross the finish line 22 races of 23, they won three events: Gaastra Palmavela, Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez, totalling 132 points, the highest score of the seasonal raking that bestows the Wally Trophy.
Congratulations to Magic Carpet Cubed Team and to all the members of the world’s most exclusive yacht club, the Wally Class.
The confirmed 2015 calendar includes the same four regattas: Gaastra Palmavela (April 30-May 3) , Menorca Maxi (May 27-31), Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (September 6-12), and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez (September 28-October 3).
Arrivederci on the starting line on April 30 in Palma!
