The prestigious Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) combines perfect racing conditions with the legendary hospitality and stunning vistas that Mallorca is famous for. The regatta is a major date on the international yachting calendar, with both professional and amateur sailors competing for honours.
Join us on board our X-Yacht 46 ‘Impulse’ for a week of sunny, inshore racing in the beautiful surroundings of Palma de Majorca for this ‘must-sail’ event of the Mediterranean calendar. . Hosted by Real Club Náutico de Palma, the crew parties are almost as good as the racing itself!
We are entering our X-Yacht 46 ‘Impulse’, she is fully equipped for inshore and offshore racing with a full suit of racing sails. New sails in 2017 include: No.1 Aramid Laminate Jib, No.2 (3DL style) and a Code Zero which is a critical sail for this type of inshore racing.
Whilst ‘Impulse’ is big enough to offer exhilarating performance, she is still small enough to be really engaging to sail.
