Race away with Servogear

27.06.2016

We want to congratulate mr. Albert Büll and the entire crew of Saudade on winning the 2016 Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta of the Costa Smeralda Sardinia. 

 

In a strong field of competitors, with wind conditions ranging from 6 to 25 knots, Saudade thrived and Mr. Büll steered his boat to victory, defending their title as champions. 

 

On the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda dock where he first stood some 30 years or more ago, the Saudade owner revealed: It was a dream of mine to win again and now it is reality. It was a fight because we had everything this week, strong wind, we had light winds and we had very light winds. The conditions were so different each day and that is the speciality of the Costa Smeralda. The boat sails very well in the light.

 

 

The Wally 148, Saudade, is a 45 m sailing yacht, built in Italy in 2008. Saudade features the lines of Tripp Design, with the modern interiors and styling of Eidsgaard Design. She is equipped with Servogear Controllable Pith Propellers with feathering positions. Read more about Saudade here.
