The Real Club Náutico de Palma announces the postponement of the 17th edition of the PalmaVela regatta, which was scheduled for this coming May, due to the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

PalmaVela is well established as the curtain raiser for the Mediterranean racing season but it is increasingly drawing a bigger overseas entry, a more diverse fleet, and more and more grand prix teams looking to set their year in motion racing against high quality opposition.
