Mallorca, the paradise for a luxury regatta

As the temperatures in Mallorca begin to rise, the season for regattas and yacht races starts on the island. The Balearic Islands, especially Mallorca, are often host to many of the world’s most prestigious events. The Mediterranean is known for being a popular destination for superyacht, yachting and classic sailing regattas worldwide. The mix of great weather, crystal clear waters, vibrant little villages, breathtaking scenery and the coolest city in Europe, Palma de Mallorca, with the unique harbor setting, the beautiful La Seu Cathedral, make Mallorca the perfect place for all boat lovers.
The superyachts compete at no other place in Europe over a longer period than in Palma. From 19 June 2019, it’s time again for this stunning high class event. Countless captains including crew, yacht owners, as well as sailing fans from all over the world come to the island capital Palma, to be present at this exciting regatta.
While owners, skippers and crews are looking forward to the opening day of the regatta on June 20, there are still newcomers to the already impressive fleet. The most recent is the stunning Meteor, which returns to the Superyacht Cup for the first time since 2007. At 51.5 m, the winner of the World Superyacht Award is the largest yacht at this year’s sailing party.
Meanwhile, those who repeatedly participate in the Superyacht Cup Palma – like the participants Missy, Velsheda and Win Win from 2018 – make use of improvements in the always vibrant Race Village in the heart of Palma. The redesigned village will provide more space for owners, guests and crews to enjoy the events and parties during the three day regatta. There will be special areas for the many partners, friends and suppliers of the Superyacht Cup.
These include the new event partner Omega, which welcomes the international luxury watch manufacturer as the official timekeeper on board, and Marinepool, the official clothing supplier of the Superyacht Cup.
