Superyacht Cup regattas organisers are pleased to confirm dates for the two editions of the popular regatta they will host next year including the first ever Superyacht Cup in Cowes, UK.

The 16th edition of the Superyacht Cup Palma will take place in the traditional venue of Palma, Mallorca from 20-23 June, 2012. Popular with owners, guests, captains and crew, the Palma regatta is open to a maximum of 30 superyachts in the central location at Muelle Viejo surrounded by the spectacular sailing conditions in the Bay of Palma.

One month later, owners are invited to participate in a special edition Superyacht Cup Cowes 2012 to take place in the waters of the Solent, UK from 22-25 July, 2012. Organised in association with the prestigious Royal Yacht Squadron, the event will offer owners and guests a unique experience of sailing in the Solent and around the Isle of Wight, the course made famous by the first America’s Cup in 1851 (then called the Hundred Guinea Cup).

Several yachts have already registered for the Cowes regatta including the impressive Hoek design SY Athos (62m), the Pendennis built SY Adela (55m), the Dubois designed SY Bliss (38m), and this years Superyacht Cup Palma winner SY Drumfire (24m). Other entrants to date are SY Heartbeat (24m), SY Savannah (27m), and the maxi superyacht SY Mari Cha III (45m).
