Mallorca Flotilla

1st Annual Balearic Flotilla

Here’s a report from Capt. Jean De Keyser who was the Flotilla Leader on a recent trip through the waters of Mallorca in the Mediterranean.

Capt. Jean De Keyser and his better half, “Admiral” Mila, led the two yachts from Palma de Mallorca to the southeast coast of Mallorca.

The lead boat, Jasper, was a Bavaria Cruiser 45. Jean, Mila together with Kelly from Nashville and Janet from Charlotte, crewed her while Marianne, Pam, Chris, Lynda, Sue, Davis and Larry crewed on Maha, a Bavaria 50. Both Kelly and Marianne had joined Croatia flotillas during previous years.

The flotilla enjoyed great sailing weather and visited the national park island of Cabrera, several calas or anchorages and the ports of Sa Rápita, Porto Colom and Porto Cristo.
