The organisers of the Superyacht Cup in Palma have confirmed that the next regatta will take place from June 19th -22nd 2013 at Muelle Viejo in the centre of Palma. It will be the seventh year for this Mediterranean event which combines competitive racing and a fun, relaxed social programme each evening - a not to be missed regatta in the European season.

After a busy racing season in 2012, the J Class Association have elected Superyacht Cup Palma as one of three regattas for the forthcoming year where the yachts will line up against each other for intense, competitive, high-stakes racing. The J's expected in Palma for 2013 are Ranger (Burgess and Stephens/Danish Yachts), Velsheda (Nicholsons /Camper and Nicholsons), Lionheart (Hoek/Claasen Jachtbouw) and Rainbow (Dykstra and Partners/Holland Jachtbouw).

It will be the first time ever to have four racing J class yachts in Palma and judging by the excitement generated in the UK this year it will provide a spectacular sight for other competitors and observers.

As well as the J's, there has been a great response from regular superyacht visitors to Palma, indicating that the entry limit of 22 yachts will be reached quickly. The 62m schooner Athos (Hoek/Holland Jachtbouw), who had her racing debut in Palma in 2011 will be returning as well as the stunning F class sloop, Firefly (Hoek/Claasen Jachtbouw).

The Superyacht Racing Association (SYRA) which has been very active in the past two years assessing the important safety issues for Superyacht racing, as well as developing a fairer rating system, have brought together the key superyacht regatta organisers and agreed on uniform racing rules and procedures. In addition all the regattas will adopt the new ISYR rating system. The International Superyacht Rule (ISYR) will replace the Bucket Rule and will be used in Palma for 2013 as well as at the Antigua Superyacht Challenge, the Caribbean Superyacht Rendezvous in the BVI's and at St Barth's Bucket. (For more information on SYRA, click here )

The Superyacht Cup will follow the traditional programme, opening with a Welcome Cocktail on June 19th, followed by racing on three consecutive days and culminating with an elegant Prize Giving Evening at Es Baluard Museum on Saturday June 22nd.

SYC Village berths are limited and entries will be capped, to reserve your place please register early: kate@thesuperyachtcup.com
