The GBR Team at La Sofía – Sailweb

The Princess Sofia Regatta races in Mallorca begin on Monday – the first major Olympic class regatta since Tokyo 2020.

This event highlights the Paris 2024 Games in less than two and a half years – the first Olympic race in Marseille on Sunday July 28, 2024 – after a two-year hiatus caused by the global pandemic.

The Trofeo Princesa Sofía is the first event in the revised Hempel World Cup series, which now consists of three European venues in 2022: Mallorca (Trofeo Princesa Sofía, April 1-9), Amsterdam (Allianz Regatta, April 1 to June 5) and Marseille (dates to be confirmed).

The Palma de Mallorca event will feature the new 2024 Olympic sailing events, men’s and women’s IQ Foil and Formula Kite, and the mixed 470 dinghy event.

These new events have ushered a whole new generation into the Olympic arena and introduce four foilboard events alongside the traditional dinghy and multihull classes.

The British sailing team is strongly represented with 31 entrants out of a total of 46 GBR entrants expected to take part, and they will compete against some of the best Olympic class sailors, representing 62 nations, in the waters off Palma.

Monday April 4 – First day of racing for ILCA, 470, iQFoils

Tuesday April 5 – First day of racing for 49er, 49erFX, Nacra and Formula Kites
