For the third consecutive year, Y.CO is proud to sponsor THE SUPERYACHT CUP. Now in its 16th year, it is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe and the Mediterranean. Set in the Bay of Palma, the Superyacht Cup provides a dynamic combination of professional racing on the sea and relaxed entertainment ashore.

Clear blue Skies and a steady breeze welcomed the fleet on day one of the regatta. Split into two classes to shorten the start sequence, it was FIREFLY that got of the the best start. Just after the start the two classes separated. Faster yachts in Class 1 followed a longer route to compensate for their advantage in speed over the yachts in Class 2.

The fleet merged back together mid race and was comfortably led by the 30m REESLE. It was the 27m Jongert, ITHAKA, at the head of the chasing pack, followed closely by HIGHLAND BREEZE, the 34m Frers Nautor Swan. Despite the slim time difference separating the yachts, REESLE and HIGHLAND BREEZE managed to hold onto their positions to win their respective classes. The Y.CO managed Jongert, SCORPIONE DEI MARI, finished fourth in her class after day one, just ahead of FIREFLY.
