Jordi Booth and Lucy Brugman 24th in Nacra 17 at the Trofeo Princesa Sofía IBEROSTAR

18 April 2017

The team formed by Jordi Booth (CN Costa Brava-Vela Palamós) and Lucy Brugman (CN El Balís) finished 24th overall in the Nacra 17 class, in the 48th edition of the Trofeo Princesa Sofía IBEROSTAR, held from 24 March to 1 April in waters of the bay of Palma.

An excellent opportunity for Booth and Brugman to train with the Olympic catamaran on board which they battled the whole week of racing to be among the top 20.  

The victory was for the Spanish Olympic team at the Rio 2106 Olympics formed by Fernando Echávarri and Tara Pacheco. The podium was completed by British team John Gimson and Anna Burnet and Danish crew Lin Cenholt and Christian Peter Lübeck.

A total of 15 races was sailed. The Medal Race, reserved to the top 10 was not sailed due to the strong sea storm on the last day of racing. 

The next stop for Booth and Brugman will be the Sailing World Cup Hyères, held in French waters from 25 to 30 April.
