Behind the scenes the Superyacht Cup Organization continues to prepare the Dique del Oeste Dock area for the arrival of the largest fleet of Superyachts in the Mediterranean. With the co-operation of the Port Authority, Chamber of Commerce, Tourist Authority and the Palma City Council the Superyacht Cup is aiming to show off the beauty, diversity and excellent facilities Palma and the Balearic Islands have to offer yachts and sailing enthusiasts.
A Technical Committee has been set up which includes representatives of the government authorities, local businesses and services to bring together the various resources for a truly spectacular event. The dock is being prepared for up to 60 yachts to be berthed stern too, and the site prepared for a tented village, bar and catering facilities for the 2,500 expected participants and visitors.
Camper & Nicholsons have this week announced they will be sponsoring the Superyacht Cup VIP Lounge. The area will provide yacht owners and their guests, captains, sponsors and the media a comfortable area to chat and socialize on-site with full view of the line up of spectacular yachts on the dock. The Lounge, with its large terrace overlooking the dock area will also be the location for each morning's 'Race Briefing' for the yacht captains.
Jillian Montgomery, CEO of Camper & Nicholsons is delighted with the announcement "Following last year's initial commitment, everyone at CNI is extremely pleased to bring further support to the Superyacht Cup. With this year's incomparable line-up of great sailing superyachts, no doubt the event will create a stir and reinforce the renewed interest of our charter guests and existing owners for large sailing yachts. In fact, quite a number of the participating yachts are already part of CNI's fleet of yachts, either under charter, built in collaboration with our brokers, or for sale with CNI. In addition, with Valencia and the America's Cup almost across the bay, having the Superyacht Cup Palma in between the Round Robin and the Cup will certainly provide the media and public with an interesting angle on the various forms of sailing competition - and fun too."
