Team Go Sail at Princess Sofia Trofeo- Palma, Spain
After a busy week of airplanes, automobiles, container unloading, ferries and practice, racing for the 2010 Princess Sofia begins tomorrow! This is our first regatta on European waters since June, 2008 so we are very excited to begin the competition. This regatta is also our second ISAF World Cup of Sailing event for the year. After winning the Rolex Miami OCR in January, we are leading the World Cup standings, so we hope to keep the momentum rolling.
There are a whopping 150 470’s registered for this event (106 men’s & 44 women’s teams) in addition to the nine other Olympic classes racing this week. The women’s fleet is very deep and talented this year, with all major players in attendance. We are eager to test our speed and technique developments from the past few months of training against the best in the World. Expected weather for the first day racing is forecasted to be a light SW sea breeze. There is a chance for a few days of big breeze later this week.
Please check back in throughout the week as we update our progress.
