Open Season!

Five fleets will open the 14th SailRacing PalmaVela regatta today and look set to be rewarded with nice, warm spring temperatures and moderate sea breezes 170-175 deg, averaging about 14kts.


The Wally class are billed to race a 33nm Coastal Race today. They will race Course 9, starting in the bay going to Illetas, crossing the Bay of Palma to Santa Ponsa before finishing back in the bay. The other classes, ClubSwan 50, IRC, Maxi72 and Swan 45s will race up to two races in the Bay.

First start of the season, at noon.
