Armare Ropes is technical sponsor and supplier for the 49er sailing team of Carlotta Omari and Matilda Distefano, who will participate for the first time at the Princesa Sofia Trophy in Palma de Mallorca.
The 49th edition of the Trofeo Princesa Sofía IBEROSTAR will be held from 30th March to 7th April in the bay of Palma de Mallorca. It is the most important Olympic sailing event in Spain and worldwide: around 1.000 sailors from over 50 nations are expected in Mallorca.
The Spanish sailing event is the first International Olympic class’s event in the European calendar and therefore gathers together a high number of teams trying to qualify for Tokyo 2020. With the second Olympic cycle underway the Sofía IBEROSTAR is set to become a key event to measure the team’s and sailors’ performance level before the World Sailing Championships to be held this year in Aarhus Denmark depending on each class, the first opportunity to classify nations for the Olympic Games.
The Sofía IBEROSTAR for ORC and One design classes will be held from 29th March to 1st April. The Olympic classes’ regatta will start on 31 March with registration and measurement. Races are scheduled from 2nd to 7th April with a qualifying series with 10 to 15 races and a Medal Stage, the great final to decide the podium in each category as well as the absolute winner of the 49 Trofeo Princesa Sofía IBEROSTAR.
Good luck girls!!!
