The 37th Copa del Rey MAPFRE is already underway. The Real Club Náutico de Palma has published the Notice of Race for the new edition of one of the most important events on the European sailing calendar, establishing the registration period for the 10 participating classes including the monohulls, handicap and box rule divisions: Club Swan 50, Swan 45, Club Swan 42, GC 32, J80, IRC, ORC, Maxi 72 and TP52. Moreover, this year the prestigious Mediterranean event will also include the Melges 40 as a guest class.

Organised by the Real Club Náutico de Palma since 1982, the 37th edition of the Copa del Rey MAPFRE will be held on the Bay of Palma between 28th July and 4th August. The first two days are dedicated to registration confirmation and measurement, with racing beginning on Monday 30th July. For six intensive days the Race Committee aims to organise 12 races for the Melges 40 and J80 classes, 20 for the GC32s and 11 for the other classes, including a coastal race.

In the last edition of the event, the Copa del Rey MAPFRE established a new participation record, with a large and wide-ranging fleet on the Bay of Palma, which saw 138 teams from 24 nationalities. This year, Mallorca's prime sailing event promises to establish itself once again as one of the most important in recent years, and the regatta organisation is expecting high registration numbers.

All teams wishing to participate can pre-register until the 1st June on the official event website by completing the form in the "Entries" section.
