Lupa of London

Lupa of London

 

Lupa of London is a stunning luxury yacht, which is at odds with her canting keel. Built by Baltic yachts in Finland, she commenced her racing career in 2012. She finished first overall in the Maxi 2 division at Voiles des St. Barth, took line honours and won IRC overall at the RORC Transat Race 2014, was first in IRC 0 at Giraglia Rolex Cup 2014. In 2013, she won the Racer/Cruiser class at Rolex Maxi Worlds, second in IRC Canting Keel class at Rolex Fastnet Race 2013, won IRC 1 at Rolex St. Thomas Regatta and won CSA 1 at the 33rd Heineken Cup Regatta. Since taking line and overall honours in the 2015 Transatlantic Race, she set sail for Sydney and has the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race in her sights. This is a crew of accomplished sailors and a funny guy, Jonny Malbon.
