If you are living on the yacht, why not make a trip right round the island.

Will take more than a week for the full circuit Peter. But it is the obvious answer. Some lovely overnight moorings miles from the crowds eg Cala Pi. Because of its size and the topography especially around the South East quarter Majorca is ideal for sailing holidays. (But you have to know what you are doing).

I would head East and explore the South and South Eastern part of the Island.

Lots of good safe moorings in the S/SE , the Island of Cabrera is a beautiful marine national park and is well worth two nights.

Personally, I would not circumnavigate the Island. The North Western side of the Island can be pretty tricky with only a limited number of sheltered moorings.

September can be quite windy especially in the afternoons so plan your voyage with care.

Have a great time.

There is a chandlery opposite Club de Mar Marina in Palma (next to Palma sea school). You can purchase a great pilotage book for the island - lots of info on anchorages and marinas. From Palma up to Soller is great - plenty of lovely anchorages.
