First established in 1996, the Superyacht Cup Palma is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe.
Run 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 in June, the regatta always benefits from warm early summer conditions and reliable sea breezes. Indeed, the Bay of Palma 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, each undertaking four days of racing. All the competing yachts gather at Muelle Viejo marina when not racing, while crews and owners head to cocktail parties, happy hours and other social events.
The event presents an ideal opportunity to undertake a regatta charter. Or, you may prefer to watch from the sidelines on a luxury charter yacht. For more information, contact your preferred yacht charter broker.
