three little (big) piggies
We know just how incredible these things are on the inside, but they sure do carve a massive hole in the water as they sail around in low double digit speeds… They’re all yachts from Ed Dubois, and an impressive 16 of these monsters got together for the third Dubois Cup last weekend in Porto Cervo. Just 8 boats raced while the rest presumably drank champagne and ate caviar, but it wasn’t all conspicuous consumption; in fact, Dubois has his own foundation to fight children’s cancer and has used this regatta to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight cancer in kids. Incredibly laudable, but perhaps they shouldn’t tout that amount on a regatta website featuring boats that spend more than that on a mainsail? Gorgeous work from Borlenghi, as usual, and there’s supposed to be a full gallery here.
