The Superyacht Cup has not only become the second biggest event on the superyacht sailing calendar but is also the longest running regatta of its kind in Europe. A thrilling four-day event which mixes good times with tight racing on the beautiful Bay of Palma, which because of it’s particular shape is renown for bringing a blissfully consistent sea breeze.
This 19th Superyacht Cup has come to a close and after three days of exciting racing it was the 55m classic ketch Marie who claimed overall victory and managed to keep up her A game under yesterday’s deciding- day pressure. The ravishing, carbon-rigged racer Inouï, who not only captured everyone’s attention both on and off the race course, bagged a Class B win. In Class C it was new-boat-on-the block Maegan who triumphed. She’d warmed up in Porto Cervo, her first ever regatta and stretched her legs in Palma to fly home and take the top slot. As all 21 competitors were split across three classes, racing was close and resulted in fantastic viewing of a fleet filled with fast boats fighting tight battles.
