Club Yachting Life Rallye 2012
The Jubilee Regatta
2012 saw a jubilee of the sailing club; 17 yachts and 130 guests celebrated the 25th edition of Club Yachting Life, with four days of exciting racing, relaxed cruising legs and a selected social programme around the Balearic island Minorca.
The regatta committee from the Club Maritimo de Mahon had picked the perfect spot for the finish line, just a few meters off the Marina Mahon in the middle of the bay so that people ashore wouldn’t miss a bit of the spectacular finish. It was probably the first time Mahon ever saw so many large heeling yachts race into the harbour neck-to-neck as usually a speed limit of 3 knots within Mahon’s bay permits such proceedings.
In the sloop class, ICARUS (Jongert 2700M) came in just ahead of ITHAKA (Jongert 2700M) with a 3rd place taken by (Jongert 2200s) TORO DEL MAR. The winners of the ketch class were KEMMUNA (Jongert 20T), PASSE PARTOUT (Jongert 42T) and ANAIS (Jongert 19s). For both of the owners of ANAIS and KEMMUNA, it was the very first participation in a regatta and both were proud and overwhelmed by their first and third place on board their just recently purchased sailing yachts.
