RS:X Women: traffic jam in the waterway

The ISAF Sailing World Cup 2013 will kick-off on April 1st, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

From skiff sailors to windsurfers, the fleet welcomes a blend of sailing talent who are looking to apply their skills and mind set to the 2016 Olympic Games, in Rio de Janeiro.

Many seasoned campaigners return in the Men's RS:X, with 40 registered entrants all vying for top spot. Ivan Pastor Lafuente will be the one to beat as he competes on his home waters.

Steady results let him climb to the third position in the Men's RS:X world rankings. With the likes of Toni Wilhelm, Ricardo Santos and Julien Bontemps joining him, the competition will be tight.

Fresh from victory at ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami and a third place at the 2013 RS:X Worlds in Buzios, Brazil, Israel's Maayan Davidovich will be one of the favourites in the Women's RS:X fleet.

Joining her will be RS:X Worlds silver medallist Bryony Shaw and Flavia Tartaglini, in the 28-sailor fleet. The ISAF Sailing World Cup 2013 will be held across Club Nautic S'Arenal and Club Maritimo San Antonio de la Playa.

Due to the low number of entries received up to date, the Organising Committee announced the cancellation of the kiteboarding class, in the 44 Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia.
