On Day 2 of racing at the Trofeo SAR Princess Sophia Regatta in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, MYC's Erik Bowers posted pressure-packed finishes of 5,6 respectively. He now stands in 23rd overall going into 3 days of Gold Fleet racing. Bowers said, "I was very pleased with my finishes despite gripping the tiller extension pretty tight all day. The conditions were lighter and my speed was very good. Now it comes down to 6 Gold fleet races in hand-to-hand combat with Charlie Buckingham who is 16 points up on me. But anything can happen and probably will." Gold fleet racing starts Wednesday, March 30 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.
