We end our training period in Palma by sailing the practice regatta governed by the local club l’arenal.
After lots of focus on speed and rigg setup the last week we finally feel that the work is paying off. We finished 13 with 37 boats.
The team is going home for a few days in school before next event.
We drove for almost 48hours (included a ferry overnight in a chair from Barcelona to Mallorca) to reach the beach in l’arenal. It’s the third time here, and it’s starts to feel like home. We normally spends 4-5 weeks here every year.
This time we are going to stay for 2 weeks, it will be intense sailing combined with physical training. The goal is to trim the boat for more speed and to success we have brought our fastest boat. We will finish the sailing period with a training regatta.
We manage to find a nice apartment close to the beach, lucky it’s “off-season” priced.
