Race Report- Trofeo Princesa Sofia

Mid-March, I flew back to Palma to finally sail my first big event of the year : the Trofeo Princesa Sofia. All the best sailors worldwide were on the entry list. More importantly, this was to be my second big regatta with only senior sailors and for sure it was going to be one of the toughest I had ever sailed.

During the pre-regatta training, we mostly had a nice steady sea breeze… but as ALWAYS, weather conditions became much tougher:  we started the regatta with a wild day with over 35 knots. As the wind was coming from shore, it was very strong and super shifty making it very hard to make decent racing. We ended up staying for over 8 hours on the water just to do 2 races that usually last one hour each. What a tiring way to start the championship!!

In February, I left to Cadiz, Spain, to participate at my first regatta of the year !

It wasn’t the first time in Cadiz for me so I was excited to go back especially since we really had nice sailing conditions the years before. Lucky as I am, I started feeling a bit sick the morning of my departure… Even though I went there a few days early to be able to train, I ended up staying most of the time at home in bed. I felt exhausted which wasn’t ideal right before a five-day regatta. Still being sick, I decided to compete in the regatta anyways.
