Persico 69 Cup is back after the summer break. The only existing team, one design, foiling monohull will have three more events in 2022, two in Spain, on the beautiful island of Mallorca, and one in Italy, in Malcesine, Lake Garda, home of Team 69F.

It is official that Persico 69F Cup will be in one of the best sailing venues in the Mediterranean, Puerto Portals in Mallorca, Spain, for two back-to-back events. Event 4.1 will be from October 18th to the 23rd, while event 4.2 will be right after from October 24th to the 29th.

The holiday location, 10-minute drive from the island capital Palma, is well known in the sailing world for regularly hosting some of the most iconic international events such as the hyper competitive 52 Super Series, and the Puerto Portals Invitationals that celebrated 20 years of tradition in 2021. Sailing in the bay of Palma de Mallorca is a dream for every sailors, the thermal breeze comes in daily throughout the season at about 10-15 knots and the waves are not tedious chops, perfect conditions for the Persico 69F.

"Hosting this sporting event in Puerto Portals is a challenge in terms of innovation, modernity and new technologies." commented Álvaro Irala, director de Puerto Portals. "In Puerto Portals we have been organizing regattas of high sporting level for years, but this is the first time we host the 69F class in our facilities. In this way, we complete an excellent annual regatta calendar, in which the winter regattas of the Dragon class and the 52 Super Series circuit that visits us every summer also take part. With the Persico 69F Cup, Puerto Portals joins the new era that these modern yachts represent for sailing."

Before the Spanish events, there is one coming in just a couple of weeks and it is relevant as the host venue is the Team 69F base, Malcesine, where it all began. Fraglia Vela Malcesine is the club hosting the event and has proven to be a great partner over the years.

The one-week competition will take place from September 20th to the 25th with seven teams fiercely racing, some of them are owners and some are taking up on the pay-per-play formula, that lets you charter the boat fully rigged and offer you precious support from an expert of Team 69F, both ashore and onboard depending on your needs. Malcesine's conditions don't need any introductions, flat water with the afternoon thermal breeze 'Ora' are guaranteed and the social moments ashore are renowned on Lake Garda.
