Almost 80 years after her launch at the legendary William Fife & Son yard in Scotland in 1938, the Bermudan yawl Mariella has won the Panerai watch for overall victory in the 30th Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. She also took home the Panerai prize for her class (Vintage B), in which she fended off the illustrious likes of The Blue Peter (1930), also from the pen of Scottish architect Alfred Mylne, and Latifa (1936), another Fife and overall winner of the Concours d'Elegance.
The event, which ran from April 19 to 25, was the first of the 11 rounds of this year's Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, the international classic and vintage sail racing circuit sponsored by Officine Panerai, which celebrates its 13th outing in 2017.
