Superyacht Cup Palma 2022 is getting ready to greet new entries and familiar faces to the mid-summer festival of sail, as well as celebrating the welcome return of long-standing Preferred Hotel Partner, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International.

“We are delighted to be restoring our long and valued partnership with Superyacht Cup Palma,” said Candice D’Cruz, Vice President, Luxury Brands, Marriott International, Europe, Middle East & Africa. “And we are looking forward to bringing the St. Regis’s timeless legacy, cherished traditions, and bespoke service to one of the finest events in Mallorca.”

Mallorca’s best address, the St. Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort, will again host the glittering Owners' Dinner on its recently redesigned and restyled premises, long regarded as the centre piece of Superyacht Cup Palma, itself the highlight of the Mediterranean superyacht racing season.

Meanwhile, with memories of winter fading thoughts are turning to the enticing summer encounter, with new entries joining the growing fleet for the superyacht celebration in Mallorca's magnificent capital from June 29 to July 2.

As ever, the fleet will be a blend of regular participants and first timers attracted by Superyacht Cup Palma's well-deserved reputation for excitement and entertainment both on and off the water.

Most recent entries include: the high-performance 32m Farr designed Kiboko Tres, whose owner will be familiar with SYC having raced Kiboko Dos in 2015 and 2016, the 27m David Pedrick designed modern classic Savannah, the 46m performance cruiser Ganesha, last seen in 2011 and 2021 respectively, and the elegant 40m ketch Huckleberry, which was awarded the inaugural North Sails Boat of the Day award at her last SYC appearance in 2019.

"We are looking forward to the opportunity to go one better than last year, when we came second in Class B behind the overall Cup winner Ravenger," said captain of Ganesha, Alex Pamment. "Superyacht Cup Palma is always a great event and Ganesha has been a regular presence over the years, so we can't wait for the end of June to come around!"

With the new arrivals SYC organisers are confident of seeing at least a 12-15 strong fleet, including of course the trio of previously confirmed J-Class entries Topaz, Ranger and Velsheda who will be racing on their own dedicated course and with an extra day of racing on Wednesday 29 June.

And as in previous recent events the SYC offers owners, captains, and crews of modern high-performance superyachts the option of competing in a Performance Class, with a separate mass racing start and bespoke racecourse, taking advantage of the outstanding race management expertise provided by SYC's long-term partner the Real Club Náutico de Palma. The iconic club is also acting as the event venue for a second year.

The Performance Class is one of a trio of options alongside the long-standing Superyacht Class and the non-spinnaker Corinthian Class. Introduced in 2017, it allows SYC to offer something for everyone.

"There is a great energy emerging around this year's event, and optimism" said SYC Event Director Kate Branagh. "The level of interest has been inspiring, new entries are coming in on a regular basis, and we are very excited to be able to welcome back and showcase the delights of our Preferred Hotel Partner, the St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International.

"Mallorca is readying itself for the highlight of the Mediterranean superyachting season, and the boost in profile for our sport in Spain following the wonderful news that Barcelona is to host the America's Cup in 2024 is absolutely great. The event is always a major draw for the world's superyacht community!"

Superyacht Cup Palma 2022 will open with superyacht registration and the captain’s briefing and Welcome Cocktail presented by Destination New Zealand and DYT Yacht Transport on Wednesday 29 June, followed by three days of racing concluding on Saturday 2 July.
