Baltic 108 WinWin returns to her happy hunting ground of Palma de Mallorca this week as she prepares to defend her class title and attempt a hat-trick of wins at The Superyacht Cup, Palma 2018.
The Javier Jaudenes-designed, all carbon, high performance sloop was launched by Baltic Yachts in 2104 and has enjoyed a glittering career on the race track including winning the SYC Palma overall in 2016 and a 1st in class at the St Barths Bucket in 2017.
Alongside her in Palma will be the Baltic 152 Scorpione of London, formerly Pink Gin, a judel/vrolijk-designed sloop which has rarely been seen on the race course but has a reputation for being fast even in cruising mode.
In fact, this isn’t her first SYC in Palma. She raced in the legendary 2007 Superyacht Cup event, which was linked with the America’s Cup in Valencia, carrying off the prestigious Millennium Cup on the last day.
The first of four J Class races being run within the regatta is on Wednesday 20 June, while the main fleet starts their three-race event on Thursday 21 June.
We wish the owners and crew of WinWin and Scorpione of London safe, fun and successful racing!
