The 17th PalmaVela will be held from the 6th to the 9th of May, 2021

The 17th PalmaVela (originally scheduled 6th – 10th of May and later set to the penultimate week of October) has been finally postponed to 2021 as an exercise in responsibility, as it happened with the Copa del Rey MAPFRE last August. 

The Regatta organisers, headed by Emerico Fuster, president of the RCNP, have announced the decision today after considering the different options for organization and participation. “For us, both as a club and as an organization and after 16 uninterrupted years of celebration, this has been a very hard decision to take but in our mind, above all, it has always been to guarantee the health of our club members, our employees, the sailors and, consequently, of all Majorcan society,” said Emerico Fuster.

At the same time, the RCNP’s president has wanted to summon all the participants and fans to 2021. “The postponement of the 17th edition to 2021 makes us think already about next year, so that together can celebrate this edition with more desire than ever. Without a doubt, 2021 will be a special moment that will remind us the responsibility as a society facing a global health problem that, together, I hope, we will have managed to overcome.”

The 17th PalmaVela will be held from the 6th to the 9th of May, 2021.
