During the last week of October, 37 Beneteau sailboats went head to head in the harbour to celebrate the 26th edition of the Beneteau Cup in Sydney. A day later, 22 Beneteau boats were attracted to the French-themed sailing event in Brisbane.

The Beneteau Cup in Sydney was organised by Beneteau’s local dealer Flagstaff Marine. A total of 240 skippers and crew took part in this year’s event.

With a French-style dress code and food and drink, the Beneteau Cup in Brisbane was organised by Beneteau’s local dealer Spirit Marine.

Next May, Beneteau’s Pittwater Cup will return to the water recreation area in New South Wales. Last’s year’s regatta received entries from 26 Beneteau boats.

Currently, there are over 1,000 Beneteau boat owners in Australia.
