Another year has closed on The Superyacht Cup Palma, and North Sails were on every boat to have claimed a place on the podium. Beyond that, all boats sailing in the regatta had North 3Di onboard to power their superyacht performance.

Owners and crews alike look forward to this annual event for the competitive sailing and welcoming onshore atmosphere created by event organizer Kate Branagh and her expert team. The Palma based North Sails loft were busy helping the 13 yachts racing prepare for the 2019 edition of Europe's oldest superyacht event as well as making time to check in with North colleagues who were also in town for the three days of racing. Sail deliveries in the morning, racing during the day, and sail pick in the afternoon, press repeat all week long.

Win Win had three wins across three races, making them the Overall Winner of the 2019 Palma Superyacht Cup and also placing them on top of the podium in Class A. Topaz, Velsheda and Missy each collected a bullet in one of the three races for class B, with Topaz ultimately winning their class overall. Bequia won two of three races in her class to be named the overall winner of Class C.

Huckleberry was awarded 'North Sails Boat of the Day' by North Technology Group CEO Tom Whidden and Head of North Sails Palma Quinny Houry during the North Sails Happy Hour on Friday. In its inaugural year, the award is dedicated in memory of Lowell North who passed away in early June 2019. "Nobody cared more about performance than Lowell North and coming from a boat that hasn't sailed a lot of regattas Huckleberry sailed beautifully," explained Whidden. "The award wasn't necessarily for the boat that's going to win, it was for the boat that we felt did the best job with what they had to work with. They had their sails up at every mark rounding, and a lot of sails, they are sailing their boat hard and well. I think Lowell would really have liked it. He cared about winning but it wasn't all about winning, he just wanted to do things as well as he possibly could."

The Palma Superyacht Cup is the unofficial end of the superyacht racing season in Europe. 2019 was a successful and productive season for North Sails and our clients, and we look forward to the next superyacht meet up at Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in September.
