Notice of Race for the 52nd Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca

The Organising Committee of the Trofeo S.A.R. Princesa Sofía Mallorca has just published the Notice of Race for the showcase 52nd edition of the Spanish Olympic classes regatta which will be held from 31st March to 8th April on the Bay of Palma.

The regatta will be the first scoring event of the Sailing World Cup 2023.

The 52nd edition of the Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca is officially in motion. The publication of the Notice of Race is one starting signal for the first major regatta for combined Olympic classes in 2023. Once again it will be jointly organised by the Real Club Náutico de Palma, the Club Náutic S’Arenal, the Club Marítimo San Antonio de la Playa, the Federación Balear de Vela and the Real Federación Española de Vela.

Javier Zaynoun, director of the Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca, explains, “The publication of the Notice of Race in effect opens the entry process. We look forwards to welcoming all the classes that make up the current Olympic roster and we expect an excellent level of participation, as 2023 is a pre-Olympic year and the Sofia is the first big regatta of the season. Last year we welcomed 840 boats and nearly 1,100 sailors hosted over eight race courses, a huge undertaking that would be impossible without the commitment and involvement of all the people working on the event. Once again this year, we are grateful for the support of institutions and sponsors, but especially for the trust placed in us by the sailors. It is an enormous responsibility and we work with the hope of meeting their expectations.”

The Notice of Race for the 52nd Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca is available on the official website of the regatta.

The ten classes of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

For the second consecutive edition, the Trofeo Princesa Sofía Mallorca is mustering the ten classes that will compete in the next Olympic Games in Paris. The Bay of Palma will once again host racing for the women’s ILCA 6, 49er FX, IQ Foil and Formula Kite categories and the men’s ILCA 7, 49er, IQ Foil and Formula Kite and the mixed 470 and Nacra 17. The competition will take place between Monday, 3rd April and Saturday, 8th April, when the Medal Races and Medal Series (depending on the class) will be held, the decisive phases to find the best in each class, the champions of the 52nd Trofeo Princesa Sofía Mallorca.

First meeting of the Sailing World Cup 2023

The 52nd Trofeo Princesa Sofía Mallorca will be the first qualifying regatta for the Sailing World Cup 2023. This year, the world cup for the Olympic classes will comprise the four most prestigious regattas on the international calendar. The Trofeo Princesa Sofía Mallorca will be followed by the Semaine Olympique Française (22 to 29 April) in France, the Dutch Allianz Regatta (31 May to 4 June) and Germany’s Kieler Woche (17 to 25 June). The Spanish event was returned to the prestigious World Cup calendar last year and has been confirmed by the international federation (World Sailing) to form part of the Sailing World Cup programme until at least 2024.

The Organising Committee is already working to ensure that crews and technical staff from the different federations are at home in Mallorca, especially those who arrive on the island weeks in advance to take advantage of the island’s excellent sailing conditions in their Olympic preparation. Once again this year, all the participants are invited to compete in the Mallorca Sailing Center Regatta, a training regatta to be held in the Bay of Palma between the 9th and 12th of March.

The 52 Trofeo Princesa Sofía Mallorca has the backing of World Sailing and the main Balearic public institutions.
