The Regata Copa Del Rey is sailing at its finest on Mallorca
For one week in August, every year, sailors from around the world gather on the small Mediterranean island of Mallorca to take part in the Regata Copa Del Rey.
Held on the Balearic Island of Mallorca, the Regata Copa Del Rey, combines perfect racing conditions with the legendary hospitality and stunning vistas that the island is famous for.
Dating back to 1982 when the Asociacion de Cruceros and the Real Club Nautic de Palma organised a regatta. Held in the facilities of the Real Club Nautic de Palma, more than fifty boats attended the event.
The years of 1984 and 85 set the tradition of His Majesty Juan Carlos racing in own regatta. His Majesty helmed the legendary yacht ‘Bribon’ which took first place both years.
Since its inception the regatta has grown from its relatively small roots into the much acclaimed regatta that it is now, often attracting teams from all over the word. Nowadays it’s not usual to see over one hundred yachts, split in to seven classes, take to the water.
Hailed by many as being the main high summer regatta in the Mediterranean, the Regata Copa Del Rey is sailing at its finest.
