27/02/2015

RTYC member Brian Smullen's 1970 Irish McGruer 55, CUILAUN, is currently competing for the Mariella Cup, which is part of the Caribbean 600.

While the fastest boats have finished the Caribbean 600, the fight is still on for the three boats pushing hard to win the Mariella Cup for best Classic yacht overall. Donated by Carlo Falcone in 2014 and won that year by his 79ft Alfred Mylne designed yawl of the same name, the yachts in contention for the Mariella Cup include Brian Smullen's 1970 Irish McGruer 55, CUILAUN, and Robert Fabre's 1945 Marconi Frers 42ft ketch, VAGABUNDO II.
