Tomorrow is the first day of the Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia regatta here in Palma, Spain. After over a week of training, we are excited to start racing! The conditions so far have been moderate, around 8-11 knots, with a very light northerly in the morning that switches around to the south in the early afternoon. The forecast for the week appears to be more of the same.
For practice we have been speed tuning with our American training partners Fred Strammer and Zach Brown and have also been sailing in a number of practice races that are run by coaches. The practice races have been great for us because they have given us the opportunity to start on a line with a large number of boats. Stay tuned for updates about the racing and be thinking good thoughts for us! The regatta website is http://www.trofeoprincesasofia.org/
