Balearic Beat – Superyacht Cup Palma Style Guide

Recognized as the longest running super yacht Regatta in Europe, the Palma Superyacht Cup honors the grandeur of super yachts on the tip of the Balearic island, Majorca.

Competitive yacht racing requires a competitive wardrobe, so where better to start than with something elegant. A midi pleated skirt gives you the freedom to twirl to your heart’s content; dress it up with heels or keep it casual with scrappy sandals at the beach.  

Pair the pretty pleats with a neutral delicate blouse. Light cotton and linen during summer are favored for their ability to keep you cool whilst maintaining an air of sophistication. Make use of your blouse from day to night and wear it tied loose over your bathing suit and since it in at your waist tucked into a skirt for the after parties.

Designed for island living and comfortable wearing, espadrilles evoke boho vibes for the free-spirited soul. Yachting; a luxury sport that omits freedom of the open seaways compliments the style of an espadrille to a fine art. Kurt Geiger’s closed-toe silhouette have a smooth suede upper, with contrasting ankle detail and delicate buckle strap to finish. 

Accessories with accents of gold dainty jewelry.

Finish off your Regatta style with a pair of feminine shades. Designed to protect from the sun, your style choices however shouldn’t be compromised. Prada’s latest Tapestry frames mirrored lenses feature a duo shaded arm and hexagon frame for a contemporary finish – ideal for a sunset dinner. 

A regatta, although of a high caliber doesn’t mean you need to be in a matching suit. Contrast your style with a deconstructed two-piece of a patterned jacket, like Etro‘s and light color pants. Your jacket style doesn’t need to be plain, a Superyacht event is the place you can dress on the contrary. Go for checked, plaid, or striped in true Regatta-style. 

A staple item for any man’s wardrobe is the plain white tee; an article that can be worn for any occasion. Fundamentally, choose a style with a good fit for your body. For a modern preppy look, if you want to remain cool during your Regatta weekend wear a white tee under your jacket instead of a regular button-down.

Daytime dressing at the Superyacht Cup needn’t be restricting and while smart-casual dress is favoured, adding a personal touch won’t go unnoticed. Dress your two-piece with a trainer, suede uppers and stitched detailing will be the ideal finisher for refined parties at the harbour. 

To switch up your style from your usual Derbies come sundown, the penny loafer adds a personal touch. Often crafted in suede the penny loafer makes for an easy style to wear with shorts, or trousers, both casually or tailored. Considered a sartorial no-no, wearing loafers with a suit is forbidden, who says you need to follow the rules? Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label’s pair are sturdy, sharp and versatile for your Superyacht weekend. 

Male accessories such as the timepiece are favoured by sportsmen. Attending a regatta as a spectator doesn’t mean  you too, can’t adopt their style. Designed for the demands of racing drivers, the Cosmograph Daytona is an eternal icon from Rolex for its high performance and smart Oysterflex bracelet for comfort that can be worn with your two piece.
