After two years of health restrictions, the recreational part of the regatta regains prominence.
There is now less than a month to go until the start of the Illes Balears Clàssics Regatta organised by the Club de Mar Mallorca. This year the regatta will once again feature the traditional three days of racing and we will also be enjoying a wide programme of social events to liven up the days of competition, after the health restrictions suffered by everyone over the last two years.
This year for the first time we have insurance broker Howden Sturge as sponsor of the trophy ceremony on the last day of racing on the 14th August. Howden Sturge’s commitment to yachting dates back to its origins in the 1970s and it is a specialist in managing the best conditions for its clients in the yacht and megayacht segment.
On Thursday, 11 August, the regatta will begin with a welcome to the participants in this year’s edition. The following day, which will be the first day of competition, the organisers will offer a party for the crews at the end of the day with a great barbecue sponsored by Absolut BBQ.
Other companies have also wanted to do their bit for classic sailing and maritime heritage by collaborating with this year’s edition of Illes Balears Clàssics of the Club de Mar. BAS&JOSA, an international freight forwarder and customs agent since 1908, is another company that has honoured us with its support. Similarly, the insurance company Allianz, one of the world market leaders in this activity, has also been involved this year in the celebration of the regatta that will fill the waters of the Bay of Palma with historic boats.
Nor could Gipsy Gin be missing among the brands that support classic sailing. It could not be otherwise, as the origin of the company is precisely the boat launched in 1927 that gave birth to the brand and that participates every year in Illes Balears Clàssics. Gipsy will be in charge of livening up the musical evenings at the club with a refreshing aperitif when the boats arrive in port at the end of each day’s racing.
