Nespresso and Wally
Aesthetics and Performance
The Nespresso Cup, a premier new sailing event gathering together for the first time exclusively Wally yachts, celebrates the fusion of aesthetics and performance to deliver the most beautiful of sailing regattas. “Inspired by the same passion, Nespresso and Wally share a common philosophy of creative innovation, highest execution on quality, cutting-edge design and technology, delivering elegant but functional solutions,” said Richard Girardot, Chief Executive Officer, Nestlé Nespresso S.A.
The Nespresso Cup, set against the enchanting backdrop of Portofino, and hosted by the Yacht Club Italiano, promises to bring a new dimension to the beauty of sailing. “Beauty, lifestyle, respect for the environment, friendship, quality: these values reflect the soul of Portofino, as well that of Wally,” said Luca Bassani Antivari, President and Founder of Wally. “The common vision and pioneering spirit we share with Nespresso convinced us to organise the first ever event exclusively for the Wally Class. Competition and Corinthian spirit will drive the Nespresso Cup that gathers the world’s largest fleet of performance super yachts, sailing together at the highest level of technology and racing skills.”
During the three day event, Nespresso is delighted to welcome, as ambassadors of the first edition of the Nespresso Cup, sailing legends Loick Peyron, Paul Cayard and Francesco de Angelis.
