The 2013 Superyacht Cup Regatta is set to take place from the 19-22 June in Palma, Mallorca, with a five strong fleet of J Class yachts preparing to take part.

Hanuman, Lionheart, Rainbow, Ranger and Velsheda are entered for the event and on 19th June will line up to fleet race with a scheduled start at 13.00, the first time five J Class yachts have raced together in Europe for almost 70 years. From 20-22 June, the J Class will fleet race within the main Regatta.

Spectacular, close racing is again anticipated amongst the highly competitive J Class fleet. Spectators will be able to follow the action, either on the water or around the world via the on-board live GPS tracking system, TracTrac.

Tracking was used on the yachts for the first time during the St Barths Bucket in March, when almost 6,500 visitors viewed the J Class fleet racing, live on the internet.

Racing at the Superyacht Cup in Palma is organized by The Real Club Nautico de Palma (RCNP) which has immense race management experience and runs large international regattas each year.

Results will be calculated using the JCA handicap. and UBS are providing a commissioned trophy for the Overall Winner.
