The Superyacht Cup Cowes went off in “quite testing conditions,” in the words of one competitor, earlier this month. But it also went off with the largest number of megayachts competing against each other that the UK has ever seen. Eleven yachts, including racing-circuit favorite Athos, Leopard 3 (pictured), and the newly delivered Hamilton, faced off.
Here are some of the highlights, including the award ceremony for the winner. (Not shown, but equally exciting for The Superyacht Cup Cowes competitors, was a visit by Queen Elizabeth II aboard Leander, in a continuation of her Diamond Jubilee celebration.)
