Sailing Yacht Win Win overall winner SYC Palma 2016
The Superyacht Cup, firm favorite with owners and sailors alike, has not only become the second-biggest event on the superyacht sailing calender, but is also the longest running regatta of its kind in Europe. An exhilarating four-day event which perfectly mixes fun times with fierce racing in the Mediterranean's most popular superyacht haunt, pretty Palma de Mallorca. An Island known not oly for its sun-drenched days but also for its beautiful bay, which because of its particular shape elivers a blisfully consistent sea breeze.
Luxury sailing yachts of 24m and above from all over the world take part in exciting races using a specially developed handicap system that ensures yachts of very different design and length can sail against each other competitively.
This extra special 20th Superyacht Cup came to a truly spectacular close on the last day. After three days of hair-raising action it was the 33m Baltic built Win Win who claimed overall victory this year. An ecstatic Clive Walker, captain on board this carbon rocket, commented: "I've got a huge smile on my face. We've been trying to win a regatta ever since we launched the boat two years ago and we've finally done it, which is a huge relief."
Sailing Yacht Win Win is equipped with Ship Motion's RPS (Retractable Propulsion System).The increase in speed whilst under sail due to the fully retracted driveline is significant. Ship Motion Group for the second year in a row was Silver Sponsor of this years event in Palma.
