The 68th Trofeo Ciutat de Palma Bufete Frau which took place from the 6th to the 9th December has been one of the best in recent years. Not only because of the number of participants, but also because of the quality of the Optimist class fleet.  Nearly 400 sailors from 18 countries took part, a record in terms of international representation.

For the first time in its history, the Mallorquin classic for children's and youth sailing was attended by four of the ten best absolute Optimist sailors in the world, as well as the female champion, the Mallorquin María Perelló from the Arenal Yacht Club. 

In addition to the Optimist class, classes 420, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial and Europe class have participated (the latter being the guest after many editions without being present).

Jose Frau made some declarations in the media: "We are very happy and proud for the second consecutive year to sponsor this Trophy, and above all the fact that so many international sailors have been able to come to our island, I hope they enjoy the weather, our island and make a good regatta. He also thanked all the organisers of the Trophy, the Real Club Náutico of Palma and above all the participants for coming to Mallorca and taking part in this fantastic regatta".
















Our Majorquin  sailor Maria Perelló (CN Arenal), twice world champion of Optimist, added a new title to her record, proclaiming herself the winner of the 68th Trophy Ciutat de Palma Bufete Frau of the Optimist class.  The brilliant winner linked some unappealable partial results and ended up obtaining an eight point advantage to the second classified, Thomas Sitzmann (USA) fifth in the world and leader on the penultimate day, and to the third, the Maltese Richard Schultheis, fourth in the last world championship and head of the trophy series, who finished with the bronze.

In the Laser 4.7 class Isidro Codoñer (RCN Valencia) was victorious.

Laura Homar and Mar Fuster (CN Arenal and RCN Palma) won in class 420.

And in the Europe class Marc Tello (CN El Balís) won.
