"The 2016 Candy Store Cup knocked the ball out of the park," said Dan Meyers, co-owner of the 52m yacht Meteor. "It was the perfect mixture of everything – great venue, professional race management, and the social side was FUN in all capitals. Hats off to the organizers, they clearly have done their share of superyacht regattas and took the best and left the rest behind," Meyers said.
