The Superyacht Cup: Looking ahead to Spring in Palma - Tulip (Frers/KM Yacht Builders) racing at the Superyacht Cup 2013
While Mallorca's stunning Tramuntana mountains are currently covered in snow and the island is experiencing some of the coldest winter temperatures for a long time, plenty of yacht owners and captains are already thinking about their spring and summer plans as entry applications continue to come in for the Superyacht Cup Palma 2015. Currently nineteen yachts are registered http://www.thesuperyachtcup.com/palma/entries/index.php and a further six are awaiting confirmation.

Tulip, the striking German Frers designed 26m sloop built by KM Yacht Builders in Holland has registered this week. Tulipīs classic look above the waterline may be deceiving as her modern underwater shape, lifting keel and light displacement give her impressive performance and maneuverability. Tulip last competed at SYC in 2013 and since then has been enjoying extensive cruising, they are looking forward to coming back to Palma to take part in the regatta in June.

Y.CO continue to support the Superyacht Cup, as always the familiar giant yellow buoys (shown in the photo above) will be prominent around the bay this year. The start and finish lines for each race are marked by the buoys in signature Y.CO yellow. Y.CO is the challenger brand of the global superyacht industry pioneering innovation and bringing a new dynamic, modern approach to superyacht sales, purchase, charter, management, new construction and refit.

Another yacht we are excited to see returning to participate this year is the Royal Huisman built 47m Hyperion. Designed by Frers and built in 1998 she has recently had an extensive refit at Huisfit in Holland. Royal Huisman have confirmed their on-going sponsorship and will join with other platinum level sponsors as co-hosts of the Superyacht Cup Owner's Dinner at the St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort.

The Notice of Race for the Superyacht Cup Palma 2015 is now published and available to download from the website: http://www.thesuperyachtcup.com/palma/registration/sailing-documents/index.php
