XXVII Trofeo Almirante Conde de Barcelona - Day 3

Palma de Mallorca, August 19, 2011

Today the protagonist of third day of the regatta was again the wind. The postponement flag was flown in the Race Village and it was not until after 13:30 when the expected Embat made an appearance, an hour later, that Regatta Committee were able to start the race. The wind remained at a constant 8 to 9 knots throughout the day which made for an excellent day for sailing.

The story of the day was the evacuation of a crew member from Moonbeam IV where he was transferred  to the Clinic Palmaplanas. Heat stroke seems to have been the cause of the lady fainting onboard and at time of writing she is in a stable condition and will spend the night at the Clinical Center.

Later the Race Village hosted a solidarity concert for ASPABON with Caribbean band, "Guitarras del Mar" livening up the evening with a touch of rock, Soul and Pop.

On Saturday August 20 a fast painting contest will be held in the Regatta Village, a traditional event in recent years and to celebrate the event's twelfth anniversary. Talent and art go hand in hand with sailing as  through the XXVII Trofeo Almirante Conde de Barcelona.
