Now in its 8th year, the event was conceived as an end of season get together for yachts to partake in some 'easy-going' racing. The yachts, for the most part, were certainly not designed to compete. Unique rules and pursuit racing have made it fun, and with the support of with sailmakers Elvström Sobstad, the regatta has been renamed The Superyacht Cup.
This lighthearted competition across the clear waters of the bay of Palma de Mallorca provides a rare opportunity for superyacht owners to relax and enjoy sailing their yachts in the company of fellow owners, with a reassuringly safe form of racing, in an atmosphere of informal competition and camaraderie.
