This Friday, June 1, a fleet of 50 yachts will set sail from Barcelona, bound for the Port of Pollensa as they compete in the fourth Barcelona-Port of Pollensa regatta. The regatta, which is organised by ANAM, Barcelona Royal Yacht Club, the Royal yacht Club Port of Pollensa and the Pollensa Council, is raced over a period of four days with the winners expected to sail into the Port of Pollensa on June 4. The regatta is a middle distance race which will take the yachts through the Channel of Majorca and around the tip of Formentor, round into the Bay of Pollensa and across the finish line in front of the Pollensa yacht club. The majority of the fleet are from either the Barcelona or Pollensa yacht clubs and organisers will be checking the yachts' positions every eight hours during the race. This year a number of previous winners are taking part, including last year's winner Chispa which is based in Pollensa and skippered by Xisco Cabrer. The regatta will start at 6pm this Friday, after a captain's meeting earlier in the afternoon. The prize giving ceremony at the Port of Pollensa Royal Yacht Club is scheduled for 2pm on Sunday afternoon, which will be presided over by the Mayor of Pollensa, Francisca Ramon accompanied by the Director of Ibatur, Tiffany Blackman who will present the Balearic Tourism Institute Trophy. The Barcelona-Porto Pollensa regatta is the first major regatta of the season with the Breitling, Copa del Rey and the Conde de Barcelona to follow in Palma over the summer.
