Copa Del Rey
Palma de Mallorca

The third day of the 22nd Copa Del Rey Regatta was the Offshore regatta, 95 miles of sailing between Palma, Dragonera, Salines and Cap Blanc. IMS 500, started in the bay at 13.00 hours (local time) with a light breeze of 10 knots.
On the first leg, Caixa Galicia dominated Subaru X-Sport by a short margin, followed by Bribón which waited to start its particular fight. Banco Espirito Santo, in fourth position, got ahead from Azur de Puig of HM Princess Cristina, and the Cam of HM Prince Felipe, sixth. It is relevant to state that a small shifting of the wind at the start, caused that Codorníu as well as TAU-UB remained behind from the beginning.

The start of IMS 600 group took place at 13.10 with a renewed fight among the Gran Soleil boats. Jazztel sailed at the top in the haul but, by the time the first buoy was reached, was passed by Italtel, followed by Wind, third round the buoy, Zurich and Fórum Filatélico. Behind them, there was a clear fight among the Rodman boats with the Husa Hotels leading Telefónica Movistar.

The fleet sailed close to Cala Figuera, but as they got closer to the island, the first shifts stretched the regatta's head. The wind dropped to between 6 and 7 knots, and the boat speed was in the vicinity of the 7 knots.

An uncertain night is expected and it is likely that the boats will make the number 5 course, meaning that the fleet will sail directly to Cabo Blanco, where the most expert crews should take advantage of this zone of sea and land wind confluence.
