Superyacht Cup Palma 2023 / Day 2

The Bay of Palma delivered in full measure today, with 15 to 20 knots of breeze turbo-charging racing at the 2023 Superyacht Cup Palma across the entire shimmering blue arena on New Zealand Race Day.

Following a short postponement for the wind to decide its strength and direction the fleet was launched on a racecourse that saw each competitor hitting hull speed at almost every angle of sail.

When the spray finally settled Ribelle and Rose took their respective class honours, setting the scene for tomorrow’s finale which will decide the recipient of the 27th Superyacht Cup Palma trophy.

With both classes starting in reverse order to their opening day results, it was Class A’s Ribelle who led the fleet away followed by Pattoo, who later in the race had to retire having suffered technical issues.

After a great day on the water the owners and crews were welcomed ashore with the North Sails Happy Hour at the Real Club Náutico de Palma’s dock. Following the daily prize-giving, the SYC’s social programme switched to the exclusive invitation-only Owners’ Summer Barbecue at The St. Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort. Guests were welcomed at the venue with the offer of a Bloody Mary cocktail, in celebration of its creation at the company’s hotel in New York during the 1940s.

Racing concludes at the 2023 Superyacht Cup Palma with the deciding St. Regis Race Day on Saturday, followed by the final prize-giving on the RCNP terrace.
