The Bavaria Balearics Cup will start on the 26th of October
29/10/2013 - After three preliminary races sailed on Sunday and Monday, the qualifying for the Bavaria-Balearis-Cup has been completed. The participants celebrated last evening with a giant paella right on the dock. The Gold Fleet is dominated by the fast Bavaria Cruiser 40 S "Picasso" with Robert van Sloten and "Miró" with Francois Kurz, followed by Thomas Rudewald with his Cruiser 42 "Ballyhoo". In the Silver Fleet Hans Frei is leading with "Leonis", a Cruiser 50, while the Cruiser 39 "Sunrise" with Raymond Blümer and the 41 Holiday "Paloma" with Arnold Szczepanski are second and third in the current ranking. While nice summer weather acompanied the first two regatta days, the weather report predicts a thunderstorm for late afternoon/evening of today and the long distance race to Cabrera had to be cancelled. The yachts left port this morning to sail one or two legs in the Bay of Palma instead.
21/10/13 - The coming weekend we will start the nineteenth edition of our popular Bavaria-Balearics-Cup. 26 teams with close to 150 crew signed in with their Bavaria Yachts for this regatta week. If the weather report is right, we will have the most beautiful late summer weather. We are looking forward to nice days on the water, exciting sailing and long nights together!
