Sailing yacht Hyperion returns to the Superyacht Cup Palma to defend title
Hyperion, the powerful 46m Frers sloop, winner in the Cruising Class of The Superyacht Cup 2008, has confirmed they will be taking part at the Horus Superyacht Cup in Palma this June. Hyperion was built by Royal Huisman and launched in 1998.
She has taken part in several Superyacht Cup events over the years, and Captain Mark Stevens and his crew always ensure the yacht is immaculately prepared and very well sailed.
"We are really looking forward to this year’s Superyacht Cup. The owner and his guests really enjoy the sailing and the atmosphere of the event, and we get the chance to sail the boat hard and very competitively. We have spent most of the winter in Palma having refit work done and this is a great way to start the season."
Plans are now being finalised for the new venue at Muelle Viejo in the centre of Palma, where a 30m diameter round tented structure, with a roof which can be raised and lowered, will provide shade on the dock and the focus for the evenings' social activities. Each afternoon after racing as the yachts return to the dock the traditional Superyacht Cup parties will kick off; 'Happy Hour' (or two) is a good incentive to join the socialising early and each evening there will be a different themed party for everyone to join in.
