Oyster Regatta Palma 2013 proves a success

Arrivals day at the ninth annual Oyster Regatta in Palma, Mallorca created a stir at the iconic Real Club Nautico de Palma (RCNP) as a fair armada of 26 Oysters from 46 to 100ft (14-30m) surrounded the club, mooring stern-to the immediately bordering quayside.

For both Oyster and RCNP, 2013 marked a very special year with respective 40th and 65th anniversaries to celebrate. In RCNP Commodore Joan Bonet’s address to the 250 Oyster guests at the evening’s waterside terrace cocktail party and BBQ prepared dinner, Joan spoke warmly of the event and its meaning to the club and presented Oyster CEO David Tydeman with a plaque in honour of Oyster’s anniversary and wished all a great regatta.

In all, a very pleasing 11 nations were represented in this 32nd edition of Oyster’s worldwide regattas.

With the racing all concluded it was time to unwind and relax at the closing gala dinner and prize giving at the quite fantastical Cap Rocat hotel 20 minutes East along the bay.

The spirited prize giving in the splendid courtyard before the dinner party began with so many receiving awards, from the conventional to the perhaps less expected. It all reflected the exceptional all inclusive nature of the Oyster regattas and the welcoming family of Oyster owners and crew.

The 33rd edition, the Oyster Regatta Antigua, is timed to coincide and celebrate the return of the Oyster World Rally crews on 5th April 2014.
