What is the Bavaria Balearics Cup?
Every year sail sport enthusiasts from all over Europe meet in the Bay of Palma to measure their skills under mild temperatures and good winds.When the sailing season in northern Europe is already over, Bavaria Spain invites amateur sailors to Palma de Mallorca for this traditional fun-regatta.
When does it take place?
The Cup is our end-of-the-season regatta and takes place at the of October. The next Cup is scheduled for the week from 22th until 28th of October 2016.
Who can participate?
This Cup has „amateur“ character, everyone who likes sailing and would like to participate in a week long series of races and social events is welcome! As the name indicates it is a brand cup where only Bavaria Yachts are permitted. If you are the proud owner of a Bavaria you can inscribe yourself with your own yacht, if not you can charter one from us. Most of the participants have a charter yacht – and they sail into the top ranks with them!
Gold- and Silver fleets
All yachts sail the first qualifying races together, before they are divided into Gold and Silver fleets. Like this we achieve that independently of rating, boat size or equipment we have crews with similar capacities competing against each other. This ensures more fun and excitement until the end.
The complete event is carried out and surveyed by a professional regatta committee under official racing rules. After the qualifying races there are between 1 and 2 races each day. Each day has a prize giving and the points of all races are adding up until after the last race day we can proclaim the overall champion of the Cup in each fleet.
The races include the classic “up and down” and “triangles” courses in beautiful Bay of Palma and an “offshore” race to the island of Cabrera or Pto. Andraitx (depending on the wind and sea conditions)
A varied programme is offered which includes. e. g. opening reception with beer, wine and tapas, dinner in restaurants with traditional mallorquin dishes, a visit to a wine cellar, tours through the old-town of Palma. The crews will also have the opportunity to do something on their own.
The inscription fee depends on the yacht size and varies between 300 € – 600 € per Yacht. The fee for food and beverages is 130 € / per person. For the charter prices of the yachts please see our current pricelist for 2016.
