Marigan - Palma Vela 2019, WINNER

Perfect champagne sailing conditions, a solid Bay-of-Palma sea breeze of up to 20 knots and spring sunshine, signed off the 16th Sail Racing Palma Vela regattas as one of the very best for many years.

Not surprisingly the biggest smiles were shared by the winners across the 15 classes, but as the long standing curtain raiser event is designed to shake off the winter rust and set teams up for the season ahead, the range of light to moderately fresh conditions gave the 110 teams a highly competitive work out.

Winning the Classic/Vintage Class was the beautiful Cutter, Marigan sporting her Ratsey and Lapthorn sails and a 17 strong crew.

Huge congratulations to Marigan, let’s hope this is the start of a very successful season of racing for you.
