Here’s an interesting option to start the week: Y.CO tells me the 180-foot classic replica sailing yacht Elena is available for a regatta charter at the Vela Clasica Menorca in Spain’s Balearic Isles.
The dates for the event are August 26-31. Elena is already accepted as a regatta participant, and crew have been organized. All a charter guest needs to do is book the dates, step aboard and enjoy the fun.
As with all regattas, there is a premium rate attached to the offer. Charter guests will pay the regular weekly base rate of €90,000 plus an additional €50,000 to cover race fees, crew and their accommodations. The party of 10 charter guests is of course welcome to sleep on board.
Elena is a 2009 build that was crafted from the original 1910 designs of her namesake. She has modern amenities including Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations, but her lines are reminiscent of the Golden Age of Yachting. At any regatta worldwide, she is a head-turner in the harbor.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Elena or help you book her during the Vela Clasica Menorca regatta this August.
