We're also pleased to announce that this year's Superyacht Cup will see a repeat of the Pendennis Paddleboard Challenge that the prestigious yacht builders hosted last year. Sailors that experienced our 2016 event will surely remember the roaring crowd and dock-side cheers which accompanied this paddle-powered relay-race.
