The Caribbean season is coming to a close and focus is now switching to the upcoming Mediterranean circuit where interest is as high as ever. With 22 entries already confirmed for the regatta the STP and Moll Vell docks that play host to the Superyacht Cup Palma are close to full capacity. Real Club Nautico de Palma (RCNP) and STP are assisting with plans for additional entries to find berths in close proximity to the SYC Village.

Palma has always been a popular choice for yachts returning from the Caribbean, preparing for charter, racing and cruising throughout Europe. The facilities at STP are some of the best in the world, incorporating the latest technology with the quality and experience of specialist companies for repair, refit and maintenance. Long term SYC sponsors Rolling Stock and RSB Rigging Solutions are located within the STP yard and many of the international shipyards including Royal Huisman and Vitters Shipyard have satellite teams based in Palma ready to assist with warranty and regular service work.

The latest entry to confirm and a first time participant at SYC Palma is the 45m sloop Clan VIII, built by Perini Navi and launched in 2011. Captain Dave Evans and his wife Fiona will have the yacht beautifully prepared for her debut visit. Another new yacht for 2014 is the Nautor Swan 100 Munzuni, recently sold to a new owner by SYC sponsors Y.CO.

Reckmann and Rondal have confirmed silver sponsorship for 2014 and join the impressive line up of the biggest names in the superyacht industry. Reckmann´s functional and reliable reefing systems and hydraulics are used by the majority of the superyacht fleet. Rondal is internationally recognised for quality and advanced design engineering of its custom superyacht solutions, designing and manufacturing spars and rigging, winches, hatches and deck equipment. Both companies are key suppliers to the superyacht industry worldwide and work closely with the partner shipyards of SYC.

Racing will be managed by internationally renowned yacht club RCNP, they will coordinate the J class fleet racing and the staggered start superyacht classes. All yachts will be fitted with Trac Trac GPS units so that racing can be viewed live on the internet. Additionally all yachts will carry Pantaenius Range Finder to help measure boat-to-boat distances.

Pantaenius have been a long-standing sponsor and supporter of the Superyacht Cup Palma and will host a race day, awarding Pantaenius Trophies to the winners of the superyacht classes on Thursday June Event website
