On Day 3 of racing at the Trofeo SAR Princess Sophia Regatta in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, MYC's Erik Bowers posted finishes of 16,8 respectively in building conditions. He now stands in 15th overall going into the last 2 days of Gold Fleet racing. Bowers said, "Tomorrow it is going to blow 15-25 knots out of the south with 5'-7' short steep waves. Our plan is two, top five finishes to pressure Charlie. My trigger pull starts must be exceptional to allow me to be going 7 knots at go compared to others going only 5 knots. Things are pretty straight forward at this point." Gold fleet racing continues Thursday, March 31 at 11am Palma time. The Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia Regatta is the second and final selection event for the U.S. Sailing Olympic Team in the Laser class.
