Princess Sofia Trophy

The Disqualification of yacht Noa favours yachts Siemens Mobile, ONO and Fermax in Group IMS-600. Yacht CAM, with Prince Felipe at the helm, continues leading group IMS-500 in the 33rd Trofeo S.A.R. Princesa Sofía-Madrid.

Following today's race, yacht CAM consolidates the leading position of group IMS-500 in the 33rd Trofeo S.A.R. Princesa Sofía-Madrid. Although two races were scheduled, the second one had to be cancelled due to lack of wind and, therefore, yacht CAM, with Prince Felipe at the helm and with only 2 points is the is in first position. In second place is Krazy K-Yote Two helmed by Thierry Peponnet and third position has been for Cantabria Gran Reserva with Antonio Gorostegui at the helm.

The leading news of the day has been the disqualification from yesterday's race of the leading yacht of Group IMS-600, Noa, for not reporting to the Measurement Committee. Therefore, the leader is now Fermax helmed by Daniel Maestre followed by Pedro Perelló's Siemens Mobile with ONO helmed by Iñaki Castañer in third position. These three boats have equal points so tomorrow's races will be crucial to decide the winner of the group.

In Group C, Alcola is still the leader after a win in today's only race. Diva X has climbed three places and is now in second position overall and third place is for Juan Cabrer's Vell Marí IV.

Group D has sailed a costal race to Cabo Salinas, which will finish early tomorrow morning. A reserve day is has been scheduled tomorrow for this group. The rest of groups will sail a windward-leeward race tomorrow.

HM Queen Sofia has visited this morning the premises of RCN Palma and HM King Juan Carlos has followed the race afloat.
