The Real Club Nautico de Palma announces the postponement of the 17th edition of the PalmaVela regatta, which was scheduled for this coming May, due to the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event, which will feature an offshore race for boats equal to or greater than nine meters in length, will now be held in October this year.
The Offshore Race of Palmavela for boats equal to or more than nine meters in length will take place between the 22nd and 26th of October on the waters of the Balearic archipelago, and the 17th PalmaVela will be held from October 27th to 31st on the bay of Palma.
Emerico Fuster, president of the RCNP, confirms that this decision has been taken to safeguard the health of all participants and all the workers and members involved in the organization of the regatta.
“As a club, as organizers, this has been again a very carefully considered decision. The initial plan was to celebrate it on the dates set for the month of May, but above all it has always been in our minds to prioritize the safety of our club members and our employees, as well as all the participants and the wider Majorcan community in general. Facing this health problem that we are experiencing, we must all be responsible and that is why we believe that this is the right decision,” says Fuster.
