Tricky conditions in Palma de Mallorca

Palma de Mallorca is well known for its sunshine, warm weather and light winds, yet this time it has been a bit differently. First World Cup in Europe and the first WC with the majority of top sailors has concluded on Saturday with medal races in all sailing classes.

This year’s sailing conditions weren’t as nice as previous years - sailors have waited for wind on the water for hours, there has been a few storms in the meantime and some strong winds as well.

In the Finn class, 6 sailors in top 10 wore sandiline gear, proving that our gear is currently best in the world. The winner was Giles Scott. Sandiliner Jonathan Lobert was 3rd, Vasilij Žbogar 6th, Ivan Kljakovič Gašpič 9th and Deniss Karpak 10th.
Here is a photo gallery proving what we are saying.
