The heat was intense and the wind was steady for the final day of the XXVII Trofeo Almirante Conde de Barcelona Regatta that saw the fleet compete in the longest race  of the event

Once back at the base, the victorious Moonbeam IV's crew heralded their Skipper, Michael Creach, and celebrated their victory by throwing him into the water.

From 16:00 pm, twenty artists participated in the XII edition of the Painting Contest, a traditional event where artists have just four hours to leave their artistic imprint and vision on the common nautical theme.

In another development, the dynamics of "caricature of recyclables" has continued apace in the final afternoon of regatta. The total number of cartoons have have been matched by euros to be donated by the NGO Aspanob organization, an association that supports children with cancer and their families. Tomorrow a parade will take place in the Bay of Palma to pay tribute to Don Juan de Borbon, attended by the Prime Minister Jaume Balearic Bauzá.
