The Superyacht Cup Palma celebrates its 25th anniversary 

The Superyacht Cup Palma is celebrating its 25th-anniversary edition (23-26 June) in 2021 and after the 2020 stop. Established in 1996, it is the longest-running superyacht regatta in Europe.

The Superyacht Cup, set annually in Mallorca, attracts some of the world’s largest and most prestigious sailing yachts, along with owners and guests. An event that combines professionally managed yacht racing in reliable sea breeze conditions on the Bay with a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the heart of historic Palma, home to Mediterranean superyachting.

Two major changes

The Superyacht Cup Palma has moved its centre of operations to the world-famous Real Club Náutico de Palma at the heart of the city. Hosting the regatta here will allow for a degree of flexibility in terms of social events, should restrictions lift.

For the 25th edition of the longest-running Superyacht regatta in Europe, event organisers have included a third racing category: the Superyacht Cup Performance Class. Featuring a competitive fleet start and racing on a separate course, the new Performance Class will join the long-standing original Superyacht Class and the non-spinnaker Corinthian Superyacht Class.

“The Superyacht Cup Palma is a highlight of the superyacht season, it provides excellent competition between some of the world’s leading superyachts and a buzzing atmosphere at the heart of one of the yachting world’s most vibrant capital cities,” commented Brad Butterworth, four-time America’s Cup winner.
