From the Club Náutico Altea website…

“More than 40 sailing cruisers manned by two sailors have accepted this year the challenge of racing the 200 miles that separate Altea from the island of Ibiza with a high probability of bad weather. Among the participants of this 34rd edition of this race are some sailors very expereinced in this race, such as Roberto Sevila and Antonio Puig, who have participated since the first edition in 1987. The winners of the last edition, S/Y Brujo, will also be competing, together with crew Jose Ballester and Andrés Manresa, winners of the 2018 edition. This year the Regata de Invierno 200 millas a2 will have some very competitive boats in the fleet which will provide a true nautical show for those who come to see the start on Friday 28; Swan 45, Grand Soleil 46 or XP 44.”
