The classic Trofeo Sofia Iberostar, a must-do regatta in Palma de Mallorca, kicks off next Monday, March 27th, to end on April 1st. New formats and courses are on trial in Palma. Well it is a bit of a mess, with 470 doing slalom reaches and more. We are here and will report on what really happens, even though going towards selections semifinals and finals makes sailing more understandable, but goes also against tradition.
Luck is going to play a big role, though this new systems will really challenge the skill of performing under pressure and when sailors will be on the starting line of the last race, the deciding one, emotions will be high. All is going in the direction of making sailing more exciting. Will it really change something? What do you think, our beloved readers?
Today it is just raining like hell and only the brits felt at home and went training… so relax and waiting for a better day is my coaches advice.
