First established in 1996, the Superyacht Cup Palma is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe and the Mediterranean.
Organised by race officers and the team at Real Club Nautico de Palma, the annual Superyacht Cup Palma is held over five days in Palma, Mallorca. It provides a combination of competitive sailing and social events, where participants can relax and enjoy the casual on-dock atmosphere.
Taking place annually in June, the regatta always benefits from warm early summer conditions and reliable sea breezes. The Bay of Palma, in fact, offers some of the most idyllic racing conditions in the Mediterranean.
Over the years, the regatta has attracted more than 200 of the world's most prestigious sailing yachts and the local government has long recognised the value it brings to the Balearic Islands. Promoting the facilities, infrastructure, beauty and diversity of the region, officials are keen to help develop the Spanish archipelago into one of the best charter destinations in the world.
Racing usually falls into two categories: superyachts and the J-Class. The main superyacht racing takes place over three days and yachts are usually divided into four classes. In 2018, a more relaxed Corinthian class was introduced to help attract first-timers and owners new to the regatta scene.
All the competing yachts gather at the Superyacht Cup Regatta Village at Muelle Viejo when not racing, while crews and owners head to cocktail parties, happy hours, barbecues and other social events.
The fixture presents an ideal opportunity to undertake a regatta charter. Or, you may prefer to watch from the sidelines on a luxury charter yacht before exploring the island on a Mallorca yacht charter. For more information, contact your preferred yacht charter broker.
