Each year more than 130 sailing boats with more than 1000 participants from 16 different countries filling the impressive bay of Palma and battling for the special Gaastra PalmaVela trophy.
The sailing regatta ‘Gaastra PalmaVela’ is organized by the Real Club Náutico de Palma in the beginning of May and is one of the most important events in the national sailing calendar. This year it is held on the 30th of April till the 3th of May.
Gaastra PalmaVela was born in 2004 with the aim to bring in general sailing closer to the public. The regatta started in 2004 as a Wally class regatta, the Maxi Race Week. Palmavela’s prestige has been increasing over the past years and therefore the number and quality of the participating Maxi fleet.
The most important units of the Wally boatyard have included the regatta in their annual calendar. Since then the regatta has gathered all kinds of keeled yachts. As said from the modern maxis to small lateen rigged boats. Including the TP 52, several one design classes or the beautiful classic and vintage yachts. Also our team Jethou is participating every year.
