Introducing Year 1
Dear friends, boat owners & skippers,
We invite you to join us for the first Classic Regatta around the islands of Ibiza and Formentera, which starts on weekend racing allowing us to all get together before the summer madness envelops the islands.
The WIC will be a distinctly relaxed regatta honouring the values that we believe are at the heart of classic sailing with family and friends.
We will have a number of classic yachts participating forming a solid foundation from which we hope to grow each year and be embraced as a popular local event.
In the port, we will share with you all that we love about an old school regatta showing that the classic ideals are as alive on land as they are at sea.
A new location for us. A perfect location
The waters around Ibiza and Formentera are some of the most undeniably beautiful in the world, known for their turquoise clarity due to the vast underwater Poseidonia meadows which nurture these waters.
Until now, these waters are being used predominately by power boats taxi-ing people to the stunning beaches in Formentera in the summer months!!!
Those of us that know the waters well also know that these waters off-season are ideal for amazing sailing. We have the perfect time of the year to take advantage of these waters without the hustle and bustle of summer madness!
Ibiza has a rich mix of people from all works of life and we know that a classic regatta will be a welcomed event in the Ibiza calendar.
Ibiza is perfect
1. Perfect dates
In the third week of April 2017, at the end of spring and the early days of summer when the Island comes alive but remains uncrowded; perfect for a local event especially on the water and in the marinas.
2. Perfect people
We have assembled a top-class management team, The island is full of classics enthusiasts and with full support from the local authorities, as well as the Ibiza Preservation fund we have created a perfect team.
3. Perfect place
We plan to create a relaxed event that embodies the spirit of Ibiza with an island that offers something for everyone both on and off the water. Restaurants and shops to bring together all that the island has to offer.
Marina Botafoch will be the home base providing an exclusive area in the port with moorings for 10 days from April leading up to the start of May.
On the final day of racing there will be an open day for all classics enthusiasts as well as a traditional Ibicencan market, some of the islands best classic cars will be on display as well as a party to see us out.
A truly classic day
Ibiza has a strong tradition of classic enthusiasts from the locals on Ibiza itself and from its diverse cultural mix of foreign residents that have made it their home.
We have a great opportunity to put a spotlight on this passion loved by so many people from Ibiza and beyond. On the final day, our friends from the Classic Automobile Club of Ibiza will exhibit inside the Marina. Where the classic cars can be seen along with the yachts by everyone young and old creating a warm and friendly atmosphere to see out the weekend!
