S/Y Blade is once again taking part in the 2019 Calpe Formentera Regatta, otherwise known as the XXXI edición del Trofeo Peñón de Ifach.

This is a high profile regatta and attracts over 60 entrants.  It starts on Thursday 30th May at 10.00 am in the bay of Calpe and then heads off for the 64 Nm sail to the finish line in Formentera.

A day to recuperate on Friday and then the return leg starts on Saturday 1st June at 10.00 am back to Calpe.  Details of the race can be see on their website https://www.rcnc.es/regataifach/

All boats are fitted with GPS trackers so you can follow the progress of the race live online.  The website for the tracker is www.tractrac.com but the regatta doesn’t appear to be listed yet, it is usually activated on the morning of the race.

The crew on Blade include CBYA members, David Reid, Hans Sleutjes, Chris Engels, Chris and Tammy de Boer.
