Last September, the Balearic Islands Sailing Trophy competition took place in Porto Colom.
Many participants stayed at our Majorca JS Es Corso hotel, where, as usual, we provided a fun family atmosphere with group activities, such as a surprise gala dinner, followed by a show in our function hall. During breaks, the race participants made the most out of our facilities, including our incredible swimming pool, sports facility, table tennis and arcade games. In addition, JS Hotels was one of the event’s sponsors.
Our JS Es Corso hotel is not the only one to host events of this sort. Our JS Cape Colom complex, which is also located in Porto Colom and has exceptional facilities and views, also welcomes similar groups on a regular basis.
The race, taking place in Porto Colom waters, included more than 100 registered yachts coming from Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza. It is part of the qualifying round where the teams that will take part in the Spanish Sailing Championships representing the Balearic Islands will be selected.
It is worth highlighting that among those registered was Carlos Roselló, from Ibiza, who was 2nd place at the World Championship 2011, in the Laser 4.7 class, and 15th place in the last European Championship, in the Laser Radial class.
The participants were able to enjoy some wonderful weather, which was most of great assistance during the course of the race stages. In fact, Porto Colom offers some spectacular opportunities to combine your free time with water sports and leisure activities.
There is a wide variety of water sports and related leisure activities that are perfect for Porto Colom waters: from boat trips, sailing and canoeing, underwater diving activities in the beautiful local waters and windsurfing to water-skiing rentals on Cala Marçal beach, diving, and so on.
All in all, the possibilities are endless and all can be found in one place: Porto Colom.
