It is one of the most popular and traditional sailing events on the calendar – and the only one sponsored by a yacht broker: The annual rally of super yacht owners at dahm international’s Club Yachting Life.
Following the event’s spontaneous resurrection last year, the team at dahm international is excited to invite owners of 24 metre-plus sailing yachts again to join together for a friendly rally. Over the course of four days – from the 21st until the 24th of May 2010 (Pentecost) – an exclusive assembly of enthusiastic yacht owners and their crews will meet together to indulge in their favourite hobby.
This year it will be “Cast off!” to Palma de Mallorca, Balearics. Each day will be coloured by its unique leg – with perhaps the one or the other yacht challenging the others to a bit of competition!
The enchanting Balearic Islands will set the stage for beautiful sunsets, live music, luxurious pampering and plenty of good-natured fellowship.
For this year’s Club Yachting Life sailing rally there are only a few slots still available. Interested superyacht owners should contact dahm international directly for registration materials and further information about this event and its extensive social programme.
Background on Club Yachting Life: Herbert Dahm founded the club in 1987 with the idea of promoting contact among owners and yachting enthusiasts in order to encourage the exchange of ideas and to enrich community life in sailing sports. A first regatta of the Club Yachting Life, in June 1988 from Palma to Cabrera, was followed by competitions out of, among others, Monte Carlo, Porto Cervo, Corsica, Menorca and St. Tropez, always accompanied by a well-developed social programme. Indeed, said programme often enough inspired its own resounding echoes among yacht owners. In 2009, the sailing event, with eleven participating superyachts, was brought back to life as a sailing rally after the Jongert-Regatta’s unexpected cancellation.
This year’s Club Yachting Life event is being held with the cooperation and friendly support of Oyster Marine, Southampton Yacht Services, Pantaenius, Palmawatch and Beilken Sails.
