Exclusive watch company Horus has signed a new three year agreement as a main partner of all Infoma Yacht Group events and yacht racing. This includes title sponsorship of The Superyacht Cup – the longest running superyacht sailing regatta in Europe and now called The Horus Superyacht Cup.

The latest yacht to confirm attendance at The Horus Superyacht Cup is the 44.7m ketch Mari-Cha III. Sailing yacht Mari-Cha III designed by Philippe Briand and built by Sensation Yachts of New Zealand back in 1997. In 2008, the former Mari Cha IV (renamed Senso One) took part, but this will be Mari Cha III’s first outing at the Palma regatta.

Mari-Cha III is a high performance super maxi which held the Transatlantic record in 1998 sailing from New York to The Lizard in 8 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes and 41 seconds. The yacht combines high performance sailing with a stunning interior designed by John Munford.

The Mallorca based Wally 80 Open Season has also confirmed it will be entering The Horus Superyacht Cup again this year. Open Season, which has a busy racing schedule planned for the summer season, will be taking part in its 3rd Superyacht Cup.

The Horus Superyacht Cup will be held from June 24th – 27th in Palma, Mallorca.
