Ibiza JoySail: the exciting new regatta in one of the most exclusive parts of Europe

STP Shipyard Palma and Marina Ibiza join forces to create a completely safe regatta; Ibiza JoySail. In this event, boats from 24 meters in length upwards will compete in a race around the Balearic Islands.

This regatta, which takes place this October, will consist of various crossings around the islands of Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera. But not only that, the organisers have also created all kinds of activities both at sea and on land to make this competition an unbeatable experience which won’t be forgotten.


The itinerary of the competition will be as follows:

– The starting gun will be fired from the STP dry dock in Palma de Mallorca, with a race to cross to the island of Ibiza.

– During the rest of the event, participants will compete in coastal races in the waters of Ibiza and Formentera.

Once the race is complete, there is a fantastic line up of social activities, where you can enjoy all the wonderful facilities available at Marina Ibiza. The marina, located just opposite the ancient walled city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is renowned for its excellent range of fashion boutiques, leisure and exquisite cuisine. On top of that, Marina Ibiza has the Safe Tourism seal, the Clean & Safe marina accreditation and the 5 Star Marina category, guaranteeing a safe and formidable experience. Marina Ibiza will offer all the regatta participants an exclusive concierge service to help the yacht crew and owners during the event.

The union of Marina Ibiza with STP Shipyard, part of IPM Group and the repair base for countless important international regatta boats, means this incredible event can take place and make both entities an international reference.

As if that were not enough, in addition to the prestigious international team in charge of designing the races, the Ibiza Yacht Club, the second oldest yacht club in the Balearic Islands, has also collaborated with the project.

This project is a unique opportunity to share our paradise with the world and show the best version of our islands to those who are passionate about the sea. Despite the large number of important regattas at all levels that take place in the Balearic Islands, to date we have never seen one which includes a race with a 70-mile crossing from one island to another, which adds great value to this competition.
