The 38th Oyster Regatta, to be held in Palma 4th-8th October 2016, is lining up to be the biggest regatta ever held in the history of these events. There are more than 40 yachts entered, including some social entries just coming for the parties.

One of whom will be the new owner of Oyster 100 Penelope who is due to complete his purchase through Oyster Brokerage just prior to the regatta and he has sensibly decided to come and watch this time.

With 37 yachts currently entered for racing in four classes, this will be a fantastic event and a great spectacle. The Race Committee will keep the fleet well spread out across the bay of Palma!

The smaller yachts racing in Class 4, include a 25 year old Oyster/Holman & Pye designed 49 footer, and at the other end of the spectrum, Class 1 will include the first two new Oyster 745s together with four Oyster 885s.

One of the 885s has already completed more than 50,000 miles and took part in the 2013-14 Oyster World Rally, and two others are recently launched with high tech performance specifications and have already shown their paces in the RORC 600 and Loro-Piana Superyacht events. Oyster shareholders will also be taking part in their own Oyster 825 Maegan.
