Maltese Falcon Victorious at the Perini Navi Cup

Porto Cervo, Itahly: Light and unstable winds led to racing being abandoned on the final day of the Perini Navi Cup 2011. Participants had been looking forward to the final battle between the top three yachts which were separated by just one point, however the final classification remained unvaried from yesterday with The Maltese Falcon taking overall victory. The 54-metre Parsifal III was tied on points but took second place thanks to The Maltese Falcon having gained a bullet in the first race of the event. Third place went to the 56-metre Panthalassa.
