French Nacra 17 World Champion Billy Besson described racing at ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca – Trofeo Princesa Sofia like riding a rodeo bull as 20-25 knots meant the limits of sailors’ were tested.
Southerly breeze whipping up wild winds and five metre swells pushed the nine fleets that got out racing to the max.
Fleets in the 2.4mR, 49er, 49erFX, Finn, Laser, Laser Radial, Nacra 17 and Men’s and Women’s RS:X got out racing with only the 470 fleets unable to hit the race course.
