Both launched in May 2015, two new Oyster vessels – the Oyster 825-03 sailing yacht MAEGAN and the Oyster 885-04 superyacht GUARDIAN ANGEL – showed their paces on Day 1 of the currently running Superyacht Cup Palma 2015. To be hosted by the gorgeous Palma yacht holiday location until June 20, this popular Mediterranean race is being attended by a total number of 21 yachts this year, including 7 newcomers. The first day of the regatta was marked by a four hour race of champagne sailing in clear skies, 15 knots of wind and flat water across the Bay of Palma.
Oyster 825-03 yacht MAEGAN placed third on Day 1, just 90 seconds behind the 15 year old 110ft ketch Blue Too, built the New Zealand-based shipyard, Alloy Yachts. The first place took the 400 tonnes, 150ft, 4 year old Perini Navi superyacht Clan VIII, just a couple of minutes ahead of Blue Too.
Only about 6 minutes behind on handicap, Oyster 885-04 sailing yacht GUARDIAN ANGEL also had an amazing race. Starting 8 minutes behind MAEGAN with the organisers using individual starting sequences, the finish was really exciting with GUARDIAN ANGEL just 50 metres behind MAEGAN on the water – a great finish for these two all-new Oysters, both steered by their owners, on their first day of racing in the Superyacht Cup Palma 2015.
