The Packer family's luxury tinnie, the converted icebreaker the Arctic P, was joined by Rupert Murdoch's huge yacht Rosehearty, just off the picturesque island of Formentera for the combined birthday celebrations of scions Lachlan Murdoch and his old buddy, James Packer.

A couple of Virgos, Murdoch turned 40, while Packer notched up 44 years.

Murdoch has also taken delivery of a brand new super-yacht, which has been under construction for the past two years. He was joined by his former supermodel wife turned television personality and yoghurt spruiker, Sarah, along with their three children, AidenKalan and Aerin, while Packer was with his former model-singer wife, Erica, and their two children, Indigo and Jackson.

In recent days, Rupert Murdoch and his wife-bodyguard, Wendi, were spotted in nearby Majorca. They were with Murdoch's trusted The Wall Street Journal lieutenant Robert Thomson and dined with one of Spain's most influential newspaper editors, Peter J. Ramirez, of El Mundo.

PS hears the Murdochs wanted a ''low key'' affair following their most recent tribulations of the phone hacking scandal.

The old chums marked their milestones with the obligatory water sports and fine dining one is accustomed to on board a floating gin palace teeming with staff.

The Arctic P has spent several months in southern Spain, where Packer and his Ellerston polo team have been competing.

Formentera is famous for its fine white sand, bright turquoise waters, fishing villages, dramatic cliffs and caves. Over the past few weeks it has hosted the likes of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, along with their small village of children.

Packer has also been making frequent visits to England to inspect the almost completed works being undertaken at his new $40 million polo complex.

For more than a year, contractors have been levelling, draining, seeding and rebuilding at Manor Farm in the Sussex village of Selham,

a former dairy that is being leased by Packer from the Cowdray Estate.

Packer will launch an assault on the English polo season next year, just as his late father Kerry Packer did 30 years ago, when he bulldozed his way into the sleepy West Sussex village of Stedham to set up a "turf farm".

For years, Packer's grand English estate hosted the rich and famous of Europe during polo matches, complete with lavish marquees and white-gloved waiters
