Postcard from | Copa Del Rey Sailing Competition

At the End of July, UK Sotheby’s International Realty attended the 38th Copa Del Rey Sailing regatta in Mallorca. We started by visiting a unique architectural masterpiece in the heart of exclusive Port Andratx – exquisite (elegant) and beautiful a stunning home called Villa Infinity. Upon entering the breathtaking living room the views hit you immediately, and as you come around the corner you look into a gorgeous, expansive pool deck terrace with the infinity pool, relaxation areas, outdoor kitchen and Mediterranean garden. The Impact of the architect’s creativity and developer’s experience blend together seamlessly. Stepping onto the balcony of the master bedroom – the view over this iconic part of the island is completely breath-taking. It is an honour and privilege to be representing such a property to our clients. It’s a real treasure for the true connoisseurs of luxury lifestyle, a treasure that goes in harmony with the authentic style and wild island nature.

Infinity, Port AndratxThere are not enough words to describe what a pleasure it was to attend the 38th Copa Del Rey sailing competition in the waters of the bay of Palma de Mallorca. Relish, rejoice, and breath-taking come to mind. From the yacht of the main sponsors, we discussed industry changing projects with the members of the worldwide team. Watching strongly synergized teams enjoy their passion for sailing and competition along with the King of Spain was a truly delightful and inspirational experience. Sharing a long Spanish lunch on the bow of the yacht with the representatives of the global brand from USA, UK, Russia and Spain, I got the strong feeling of affiliation and union. Having the opportunity to see so many diverse people sharing common values and fundamental principles, passionate energy and professionalism makes me believe that our collaborations will inspire creativity and high-quality service. Such experience gives the fulfilling sense of being a part of truly international movement, that unites thousands of people under the roof of one home. It’s inspirational to know that we are all together and we are the real global team.

Over the course of the week we attended striking events for sponsors and participants of the sailing competition in the beautiful club El Nautico. I was lucky to meet and have a long profound conversation with the owner of this terrific restaurant chain; he puts an unbelievable amount of dedication, and hard work into his business and this annual event. I found out for you that he is planning to spoil Londoners with his new restaurant in the near future watch this space!

Magnificent: the level of delicious food, live music and first class service. This is what we are a part of.
