The 20 participating yachts are gathering in Palma making final preparations for the four-day regatta which starts tomorrow 19th June.
The event is shaping up to be a competitive superyacht regatta with a world-class fleet including five of the famous J Class yachts.
The regatta programme
The J Class will be racing on Wednesday 19th June with an exhibition race.
The two superyacht classes will start racing on Thursday 20th June.
The final race for all will be on Saturday 22nd June and the event will be brought to a close with a spectacular prize giving evening at Es Baluard Muesum of Contemporary Art overlooking the yachts and the Port of Palma.
For the first time in Palma all the yachts will carry tracking devices, which enable spectators and keen followers in any location to view the races live via the website, www.thesuperyachtcup.com; the tracking has been kindly sponsored by Absolute Boat Care, Moll Vell Marina and UBS. The races will also be shown on a screen in the tent at the Race Village and can be watched via the website at any time after the race.
This year the grand tented bar and entertainment area is the focus for the social programme. Music and Entertainment will bring everyone together each afternoon after racing in the usual informal Superyacht Cup style.
As every year for the past 12 and since the very beginning of this event, Astilleros de Mallorca will be present with a stand.
