Superyacht Cup - Final Day

Velsheda takes dramatic overall victory in a close finish at The Superyacht Cup Palma

A dramatic day on Palma Bay saw the final outcome of the 22nd Superyacht Cup hanging in the balance until the final moments of competition.

The overall trophy went narrowly but deservedly to the famous J Class yacht Velsheda after an inspiring performance over the three days of the superyacht regatta.

Another dazzling day out on the water in the spectacular conditions so often delivered on Palma Bay saw other class results and individual rivalries settled.

Win Win repeated her Class A winning performance of last year after holding off strong challenges from both Saudade and Highland Fling 15.

Bolero won the final race in Class C, but Silencio’s second place to add to her earlier first and second saw her take the overall class win ahead of Bolero and Athos.

While the Corinthian Class D – making its first appearance at the regatta – were not in contention for the overall Superyacht Cup trophy, the two yachts involved raced hard, with Q taking the win ahead of Scorpione of London.
