Sail-World.com : Superyacht Cup regatta Palma De Mallorca gears up

Superyacht Cup regatta Palma De Mallorca gears up

'Muelle Viejo, Palma - The Superyacht Cup 2011'    www.clairematches.com
Superyacht Cup regatta 2011 preparations are well underway. So far, 16 yachts have registered for the event including five brand new entries that have never competed in the event before. Space at the Muelle Viejo only allows for a maximum of 20-22 entries.

The event will be conducted in Palma from June 22nd to 25th.


Returning to defend their 2010 title is the 29m Tony Castro designed Jongert ‘Scorpione dei Mar’. Other past Cup competitors coming back to Palma in June include Ganesha (39m Dubois), Saudade (45m Tripp), Tenaz (39m Dubois), Drumfire (24m Hoek) and Gliss (35m Phillipe Briand). Gliss won the 2009 Palma Superyacht Cup and returns this year under new ownership.

This year also sees the biggest number of first-time entries to the event. Joining the fleet are two stunning modern classics, the 55m Adela built in 1995 by Pendennis Shipyard, and Marie, a 55m Hoek design launched last year by Vitters Shipyard in Holland. Other newcomers are Genevieve (37m Dubois), Nilaya (34m Reichel Pugh/Baltic Yachts), Nefertiti (27m, Nautor), and Heartbeat (35m Hoek).

Now in its 15th year, the ever-popular Superyacht Cup is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe and is a favourite event with Owners and crews at the start of the summer season in the Mediterranean. Famous for its relaxed atmosphere and fabulous sailing conditions in the Bay of Palma, the Superyacht Cup is very much a family affair with its trademark barbecues, dockside parties, and a spectacular outdoor gala evening overlooking the Bay of Palma on the final evening.

There are also plans for a Superyacht Cup Golf Day this year, on the day following the event, Sunday 26th June.

'Its fantastic to see so many new yachts coming to the event this year,' commented new 2011 Event Director James Pleasance. 'We look forward to welcoming these and all the other competitors to Palma in June and showing them what the Superyacht Cup is all about!'
