Ibiza JoySail Regatta, the perfect event to bid the summer farewell


With just one edition under its belt, Ibiza JoySail Regatta has already become the perfect closing event of the summer. In short, it’s a brand new yachting concept that has burst onto the world racing scene. One sign of its success is that the second edition, being held from 22 to 25 September this year, has already seen more than twice as many yachts sign up than for the first edition, yet another reflection of the amazing reception for this exclusive regatta for 24-metre-plus maxis and superyachts.

Ibiza JoySail has wowed everyone with its concept of fun at sea and on land. The regatta was created to enjoy sailing in the heavenly setting of Ibiza and Formentera, together with a fascinating shoreside social programme where owners, friends, families and crews get together to celebrate the end of the summer at an event packed with anecdotes and surprises.

The race sets off in Palma Bay on the initial crossing over to Ibiza, where entrants will try to set the first record for this course. On arrival in Ibiza, three intense days of shorter races take place off Ibiza and Formentera, two paradises for sailing lovers thanks to their crystal-clear waters like nowhere else in the world and their practically constant wind.

This regatta is also an ideal end-of-season competition so that large yachts wintering in the Balearics or crossing over to the Caribbean can kick up their keels at Marina Ibiza, one of the Med’s most exclusive ports and promoter of the event together with STP Shipyard Palma, with the support of the Ibiza Island Council and Ibiza Town Council.

In this second edition, the impressive Swan 115 Moat, the YD 120 Bliss and the Swan 80 Dark Horse will be back on the racecourse, where Moat will be defending her current title. And they’ll be joined by the Swan 98 Alix, the Swan 98 Be Cool, the Vitters 100 Havana of London, the Oyster 885 Karibu, the Oyster 72 Shangri-la, the Y8 80 Peregrin, the Baltic 70 Turconeri and the Dykstra 152 Windrose of Amsterdam.
