Superyacht Cup Palma - Countdown to action underway
Tue, 11 Jun 2013
With the countdown narrowing to just a week to the Superyacht Cup Palma, the 20 participating yachts are gathering and making final preparations for the four day regatta which starts on June 19th. The event is shaping up to be one of the most competitive Superyacht regattas of the year with a truly world-class fleet including five of the famous J Class yachts.
The racing starts for the J Class on Wednesday 19th with an exhibition race and the two Superyacht classes will start racing on Thursday 20th. The final race for all will be on Saturday 22nd June and the event will be brought to a close with a spectacular Prize Giving Evening at Es Baluard Muesum of Contemporary Art overlooking the yachts and the Port of Palma.
For the first time in Palma all the yachts will carry tracking devices which enable spectators and keen followers in any location to view the races live via the website website, the tracking has been kindly sponsored by Absolute Boat Care, Moll Vell Marina and UBS. The races will also be shown on a screen in the tent at the Race Village and can be watched via the website at any time after the race.
This year the grand tented bar and entertainment area, which is the focus for the social programme, will have a comfortable chill-out area with a cooling gin and tonic bar provided by Puro Beach. Hogan's will once again be managing the main bar and Nespesso will provide the morning coffee before racing. Music and Entertainment will bring everyone together each afternoon after racing in the usual informal Superyacht Cup style.
Jongert Yachts have just confirmed silver sponsorship and to celebrate the opening of their new office in Palma they will hold an inauguration cocktail party for their guests and clients on their stand on Friday evening.
