Tilly XV wins 2017 Gstaad Yacht Club Centenary Trophy
Photo-finish may seem an overstatement to define centenarian yachts crossing the finish line. But this is actually what happened in Saint-Tropez where eleven crews, out of twenty entrants, finished the race for the 2017 Gstaad Yacht Club Centenary Trophy, the only sailing trophy reserved to boats of one hundred years and more. Tilly XV made the best possible debut at the regatta by snatching a well-deserved victory for a handful of seconds from Spartan, with Linnet closing in third.
In two weeks’ time, some of the most fascinating old ladies of the classic yachting circuit and a great line-up of experienced teams and sailors will reunite again on the Cote d’Azur for the 7th edition of the Gstaad Yacht Club Centenary Trophy.
