On the evening of May 25, the sailing superyacht My Song from Baltic 130 line fell from the cargo ship that was carrying her across the Atlantic, from the Caribbean to the Balearics.
My Song was supposed to be unloaded in Ibiza ahead of her appearance in this year’s Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta that is taking place form June 3 to June 6 in Sardinia, as the past year winner.
Built in 2016, this 39.6-metre tall and 8.5-metre wide sailboat was well known for its sleek outline with designs by Nauta Design studio. The yacht is owned by Pier Luigi Loro Piana (net worth $1.6 billion – Forbes), an heir to the high end clothing company Loro Piana. Mr. Loro Piana also hosts eponymous yacht racing events.
Last December, My Song’s crew set a new speed record during the RORC Transatlantic Race. The journey of 3,000 nautical miles from the Canary Islands to Grenada took 10 days, 5 hours, 47 minutes and 11 seconds for the crew — almost 1 hour and 20 minutes less than the previous record holders in 2015. Sails, rising on the 56-meter mast, accelerated My Song to 30 knots.`
