GC32 Copa del Rey Mapfre - Final Day in Palma

INEOS Team UK has won the GC32 competition at 37 Copa del Rey MAPFRE

With 19 races held across four days on the Bay of Palma, the brits secured the overall win with a race to spare.

Nine points astern, Franck Cammas’ NORAUTO finished a valiant second, the French team’s winning streak in the 2018 GC32 Racing Tour finally coming to an end.

It was a top day for the owner-drivers, who won all today’s four races: Simon Delzoppo’s .film Racing claimed the first (his second of the event), leading from the top mark on.

Knocking it out of the park today was Erik Maris’ Zoulou, showing a return to her GC32 Lagos Cup form by winning both Saturday’s second and fourth races.

Alongside INEOS Team UK and Zoulou, Jason Carroll’s Argo was joint top scoring boat of the day.

The US team won race three today, and was leading for most of the second too, which they would have won had they not picked the wrong, light wind side of the last run.
