On the weekend of September 20, BENETEAU sailing yacht owners gathered in San Diego, California for the 2019 BENETEAU Cup. The annual regatta consists of two days of sailing with 7 classes of sailors, welcoming all skill levels. Families, friends, and co-workers alike also enjoyed a Sail Trim & Basic Race Seminar, an overnight raft up, a dinner evening with live music, and an awards ceremony to close the weekend out. Hosted by BENETEAU dealer, South Coast Yachts, the event brought in 46 BENETEAU sailboats for a weekend of sailing and fun this year. Congrats to the winners in each class!
