Corporate events 13 August 2018
The showcase Mediterranean regatta has been an outstanding success, with a full complement of races sailed in each class in typically light Bay of Palma sea breezes.
The 37 Copa del Rey MAPFRE will be remembered for its record fleet of 152 yachts representing 29 different countries. Thirteen classes raced and for the first time ever five different race areas had to be employed. It marked the first ever participation for the Melges 40 swing keel one design and for the historic 6 Metre fleets which raced in Classic and Modern divisions. It was a constituent regatta of the Swan Nations Mediterranean Trophy, the GC32 Racing Tour and the Melges 40 Grand Prix series.
King Felipe VI, in addition to participating in the competition, was the main host in the awards ceremony, our most sincere congratulations to all participants! Winner of the Mallorca Sotheby´s International Realty IRC 0 was the highly competitive German team Momo and in the category Mallorca Sotheby´s International Realty IRC 1, team Beau Geste from Hong Kong was the overall winner. Both teams won 8 out of 11 races.
Mallorca Sotheby's International Realty was also present at the traditional Shipowners' Dinner, a very special social gathering that had more than 500 guests among shipowners, sponsors and collaborators. Light shows and sublime musical performances stunned the audience in a white and magical night, in which London singer Tiggi Hawke was the center of all attention. Friday the 3rd of August was the Mallorca Sotheby's International Realty day: we were able to enjoy a brunch at El Náutico Restaurant followed by a wonderful boat trip during the morning. We closed the day with a special party for our collaborators, clients and friends, where social, sports and cultural figures of Majorcan society, were present. We will highlight, again, Tiggi Hawke’s performance, who impressed all the attendees. It was a night where they enjoyed a fantastic atmosphere, excellent food and where networks and contacts were strengthened in the best of conditions.
The perfect ending to a delightful week.
