Who can participate?
The Cup has “amateur” character, everyone who likes sailing, racing and socializing can participate. Form 2017 onwards, the Cup will be open to sailing yachts of diffenrent brands. While the majority will race on Dufour yachts, we have other yachts such as Bavarias, Beneteaus or Hanse Yachts joining us as well. Owners can directly inscribe their yachts for the Yates Mallorca Cup. Those who do not come with their own yacht, can participate with a charter yacht from our fleet. Most of the participants race on charterted yachts – and they sail into the top ranks with them!
Gold- and Silver- fleets
All yachts sail the first qualifying races together, before they are divided into gold ans silver fleets. Like this we achive that independently of rating, boat size or equipment we have crews with similar capacities competing against each other. This ensures more fun and excitement until the end.
The complete event is carried out and surveyed by a professional regatta committee under official racing rules. After the qualifying races there are between 1 and 2 races each day. Each day has a price giving and the points are added until at the end there is a winner in each fleet. The races include the classic “up and down” and “triangles” courses in the nice bay of Palma and an “offshore” race to the island of Cabrera or to another port on the island. (depending on wind and sea conditions.
From the opening reception with wine, beer and tapas in the dignified ambience of one of the clubs or a nice bar, to a visit to a winery with a subsequent a barbecue buffet, a theme party on the pier, to a festive award ceremony with a closing dinner – our supporting programme is varied and changes every year. Nevertheless, there is still enough time to do something on your own in the capital or to plan an individual island tour.
The participation fee is approx. € 450 – 750,- per yacht, depending on the size of the yacht.
