The 52 Trofeo Princesa Sofía took place in Palma from 31 March to 8 April, an international regatta organised jointly by the Majorcan marina Real Club Náutico de Palma, Club Marítimo San Antonio de la Playa (CMSAP) and Club Nàutic S’Arenal (CNA) as well as the Real Federación Española de Vela and the Federación Balear de Vela. This competition has already become a must in the regatta calendar as it’s the first qualifying event for the Sailing World Cup 2023.
976 crews and 1,259 sailors from 66 countries met in the bay of Palma, split into 8 regatta fields — a decisive competition that can secure positions in the race towards the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The star of this regatta was undoubtedly the 16-year-old Singaporean Max Maeder, who was crowned overall winner of the 52 Trofeo Princesa Sofia competing in the new Olympic Formula Kite Men class.
The young Asian sailor lifted the top overall trophy after 6 days of fierce competition, showing his remarkable skill, technique, and vision in the regatta field.
The prize-giving ceremony was the perfect ending to a record-breaking event in participation numbers. The venue for the occasion, after six days of intense competition, was the beautiful area of Ses Voltes, with Palma’s cathedral as a spectacular backdrop
