Held every year in the Balearics capital of Palma de Mallorca, the Copa del Rey manages to combine suspense, glamour and serious competition. For the 37th edition, the event is booked out with 156 registered from 17 nations competing. Always tight at the top with high-levels of technique, the Copa attracts seasoned racers like Leonardo Ferragamo (Cuordileone) on his powerful new Club Swan 50 and Vladimir Liubomirov (Bronenosec Gazprom) from the Yacht Club de Monaco. The YCM flag is represented in all the different classes, including Esteban Garcia’s Realteam in the GC32 and Valentin Zavadnikov (Dynamiq – Synergy Sailing Team) and Federico Michetti (Inga from Sweden) in the Melges 40.
