With just two months to go to the start of Superyacht Cup Palma 2024 anticipation is growing as new entries sign up for the Mallorcan festival of sail from 19 to 22 June.

Among those adding their names to the entry list for the 28th edition of Europe's longest running superyacht regatta are the 39m Hoek Design Atalante — making a welcome return after her last appearance in 2017.

"We have been away for some time cruising, but we are back and looking forward to making a return visit to Superyacht Cup Palma," said Atalante's captain Michael Elias. "We had a great time back in 2017 and we will no doubt get more of the same this time around - the Superyacht Cup Palma is a must do event when we're in the Mediterranean!"

Meanwhile a first-timer, the 25m Frers designed Swan Dark Horse (ex-Chessie), will be embracing the challenge of racing against her Swan stablemate Umiko, a 24m Nautor design, as well as the 24m Wally Rose, the defending SYC champion.

"Superyacht Cup Palma is a new event for us," said Dark Horse's captain Sacha Pace. "The competition looks great, and of course the social side is also something we can't wait to experience - the event is well known for its high-quality racing and fun ashore."

Also helping push the entries into double figures are the elegant 39m Tripp designed sloop Cervo, and the similarly sized 128-foot Vijorana, another Hoek design (A Friend of the Superyacht Cup) this time from the Pendennis yard, an SYC Gold Partner.

And, as previously announced, the returning J-Class yachts Velsheda and Svea will be joined by their classmate Rainbow, making her debut outing with a new owner and crew — a trio that will help bring the Bay of Palma alive.

"As ever it is a special part of this event to be able to welcome first-timers alongside returning friends," said SYC Event Director Kate Branagh.

"The Superyacht Cup Palma team also want to pay tribute to the valued and ongoing support of the Real Club Náutico de Palma, our long-standing race management partner and event host, and our Preferred Hotel Partner St. Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort, as well as extend a warm greeting to our new sponsors MEROS and Lush Blush."

MEROS, who will be providing the VIP Hospitality Boat at Superyacht Cup Palma, offers unique and variable co-ownership models — exclusive to Sunseeker yachts — extending the opportunity of yacht ownership to a larger client group.

Meanwhile, ashore SYC guests will be able to enjoy Lush Blush, an elegant, light and refreshing rosé wine from the Côtes de Provence. The blend of grenache, cinsault and vermentino grapes is a winning combination!
