Gold fleet racing at ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca – Trofeo Princesa Sofia commenced on the third day with a mixed bag of conditions thrown out. South east winds reaching 20 knots and regular three metre swells on the race courses closest to Club Nautico s’Arenal were a strong contrast to the light fickle breeze on the race courses by C.M. San Antonio de la Playa on the other side of the bay.
Racing got underway in the Men’s and Women’s 470, 49er, 49erFX, Finn and Nacra 17 with the 2.4mR, Laser, Laser Radial and RS:X’s unable to race due to light winds. With strong breeze present for the six classes that raced it made for an exciting and intense day of racing.
