From our friend Jesús Renedo: Today I followed a coastal race of classic boats (Silver Bollard Classic Race), and everything lined up for a perfect day. It was around the SW Coast of Mallorca, fortunately a NE front was passing through , with bright sun and colors. The course was very close to some dramatic cliffs that made a great background for the classic boats, and they are so beautiful! It is the essence of sailing , and in those gusty conditions, with wind blasts coming down the cliffs it was a lesson not to forget, no matter how incredible the new boats are, the classics look better!
I was all alone in the rib, moving up and down the fleet and enjoying the landscape, great for the spirit!
