Here are the entries for  The Superyacht Cup 2014 in Palma de Mallorca from JUNE 18 – 21 2014.

The 2014 fleet is a mix of regular SYC participants and new yachts to the event. Following the success of the J-Class regatta in the 2013 SYC 5 of the J Class yachts are retuning, for no doubt very close and exciting racing.

Last year’s winner Hanuman will be fighting it out with Ranger, Velsheda, Rainbow and Lionheart. For more information on the J-Class site. The J-Class yachts will be racing an extra day on Wednesday 18th June, they will have fleet starts and will be sailing a separate course to the superyachts under the JCA rules.

The 20 superyachts will be racing in three classes under the ISYR rules. There will be a staggered start sequence, which means the time interval between the first boat starting and the last boat starting will be shorter and should ensure that yachts should start in more similar wind conditions producing fairer results. It is always a difficult job to produce a fair system for racing such vastly different yachts and continuous developments are made to the race format to improve the racing for everyone.
