Princesa Sofia World Cup Series Regatta Mallorca



Zoe Thompson finished second to Hungary’s Maria Erdi in the ILCA 6s in the just completed 53rd Princesa Sofia World Cup Series Regatta in Palma Mallorca. From the 116 ILCA 6 competitors including all the top sailors in the world Elyse Ainsworth was fourth and Mara Stransky after leading early in the event finished 9th – so three Australians competed in the medal race.


The 193 boat ILCA 7s event was won convincingly by UK sailor Micky Beckett. Matt Wearn was 5th and Ethan McAullay  7th in what was a high scoring series for everyone except Micky Beckett.


This regatta is huge with 1,100 sailors competing from 76 countries  in all Olympic classes.
