Over 20 of the worlds largest and most famous yachts, including the return of the stunning J Class are expected to turn out for the Superyacht Cup in Palma.
Thrilling spectators and photographers last year, the intensely close racing of these powerful and graceful sailing yachts in the Bay of Palma was an extraordinary sight and dramatic images were seen all around the world.
The event has been nominated by the J Class as the premier regatta of the 2014 season.
To mark this event there will be two exceptional historic trophies presented to the winners; the “Corinthian Kings Cup” made by R & W Sorley of Glasgow in 1914 is a silver cup first presented by King George V to the Royal Clyde Yacht Club, this will be awarded to the winning J Class over the four days racing with an amateur owner driver.
SecOondly, the “Kings Hundred Guinea Cup” made by Carrington & Co of London in 1927 which was presented by King George VI for the Royal Yacht Squadron regatta in 1937. The first placed J Class on handicap on Wednesday 18th June will receive this striking silver gilt trophy.
