Superyacht Cup Palma 2013 - Touch competition on Day 4


'Superyacht Cup in Palma 2013'    www.clairematches.com

Superyacht Cup 2013 concluded in Palma today. Heartbeat was the overall victor with today's first giving her the edge over Maria Cattiva and Atalante in Class 2.

Manon Borrius Broek, the Owner on board Heartbeat was over the moon with the result, she bought the 23.8m Claasen yacht specifically big enough (and still the smallest in the fleet) so that she could enter the Superyacht Cup. 'It was our dream to participate in the Superyacht regatta, we have been fine tuning for three years and are now the winners. We are very happy.'

In Class one, Highland Breeze ranked first overall in front of P2, Salperton. However competition was tough in the last legs of today's final race; Salperton had the edge on P2 and Rebecca as they rounded the final mark, however lost out to P2 over the line as they had to put a final gybe in to lay the line.

Freya has put in some consistent results over the event, Mike Toppa the tactician aboard summed up the general feeling of the event perfectly; 'We have been having a ball, the sailing here is fantastic. The Owner has never raced before and is doing a great job at driving his boat, he is here with his friends and family and having a brilliant time.'

For the J's, it was all about the start in their last coastal race today. Velsheda charged the line and had by far the most spectacular start of the regatta. The all important first beat saw Hanuman round the first windward mark first, followed by shortly after by Velsheda. The next leg was a short reach, with Hanuman, Velsheda having a good lead on Ranger, Rainbow and Lionheart. Hanuman continued to lead the procession around the two hour course,second place was Velsheda making good on her fantastic start, followed by Ranger, Lionheart and Rainbow. Overall results, see Hanuman the victor (this will be seven out of eight firsts for her), Lionheart and Ranger have equal points however with a first in Race three Lionheart takes second, with Velsheda fourth and Rainbow fifth.

Tonight the Prize Giving will be at the Es Baluard Museum with a cocktail dinner and live entertainment.
