    WindWhisper 44 Triumphs at Palma Vela Regatta

    Poland’s Yacht Klub Polski Gdynia’s WindWhisper 44 made a triumphant return to competition, winning the Palma Vela regatta in Mallorca last week.

    Proven Track Record

    Following last year’s victories in The Ocean Race Sprint Cup and the Rolex Fastnet Race, WindWhisper 44 has demonstrated a winning formula. Competing with four international sailors, they dominated the ORC 1 class, securing a three-point lead over Spain’s Nadir and Pez De Abril.

    Overcoming Challenges

    Despite pre-race technical issues, skipper Marcin Sutkowski expressed relief at the successful outcome: “We faced significant challenges, including a last-minute equipment fix. Yet, we secured victory with a race to spare.”

    Looking Ahead

    WindWhisper 44 aims to defend their World Championship title in Newport, USA, this fall, with upcoming tests at the Loro Piana Giraglia and training in Valencia.
