Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia Mapfre Women's Match Racing - Day 1

Anna Tunnicliffe - 43 TROFEO S.A.R. PRINCESA SOFIA MAPFRE day 1 Jesus Renedo / Sofia Mapfre http://www.sailingstock.com
On day 1 of the Women's Match Racing competition at the 43rd Trofeo S.A.R. Princesa Sofia MAPFRE in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, competitors waited on shore for the wind to develop.

A steady eight-twelve knot sea breeze filled in for most of the day for the event, which is the first European stop of the 2011-2012 ISAF Sailing World Cup.


The initial round robin stage of the event is split into two groups of nine teams each. As all of the Olympic hopefuls are here to compete, each group is brimming with talent and all of the matches, as expected, are very hard fought.

Group A sees the two American teams of Anna Tunnicliffe and Sally Barkow leading the way with 3 wins each from four matches sailed. Group B only started racing near 18h00 this evening, so only two flights were completed with the teams of Lucy Macgregor (GBR), Tamara Echegoyen (ESP), Olivia Price (AUS), and Claire Leroy (FRA) each going undefeated.

Tuesday will see many more flights planned to complete the round robins to select who will move into the Gold Group and automatically into the Quarter Finals and who will need to sail in the Repechage (or second chance) round robin to try to join the Gold Group in the Quarter Finals.
