The third stop of the seven regatta ISAF Sailing World Cup series starts on 3 April in Palma, Spain. The 2011 Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia MAPFRE marks the start of the European sailing season and many of the early leaders in the ISAF Sailing World Cup Standings are making the trip to Palma.
In the Laser Radial the top three in the ISAF Sailing World Cup Standings of Marit Bouwmeester (NED), 34 points, Nathalie Brugger (SUI), on 29 points and Krystal Weir on 24 points are heading to Palma. Bouwmeester, current world #1 and last year’s Laser Radial ISAF Sailing World Cup Champion, will be the favourite coming into Palma but with a field that features Evi Van acker (BEL), Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR), Veronika Fenclova (CZE), Sari Multala (FIN) and Paige Railey (USA) the competition will be fierce.
The Delta Lloyd Regatta wishes the organising committee as well as all competitors a lot of success during the 2011 Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia in Palma. Especially the Dutch Delta Lloyd Regatta Squad, which will be entirely present during this Regatta.
