This is the start of the European Olympic class regatta season.

This is the kind of regatta that the Asia Pacific can only dream about, almost 900 teams, 1200 Olympic class sailors from 60 countries - Aussie teams must sail the European circuit to be exposed to the very best competition.

We talked to Jake Lilley who has grown an inch since we last saw him here in Palma a year ago, he is now a towering six foot seven inches.

Across the week we will talk to many of our key sailors, we trust you enjoy our coverage of this vital event for our high performance squads.

Lots more news from the local and the international team.

Enjoy, while we have a glass of Syrah and some tapas for you, looking out over the misty Bay of Palma.
