On Day 4 of racing at the Trofeo SAR Princess Sophia Regatta in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, MYC's Erik Bowers posted finishes of 44,44 respectively in big breeze and big waves. He now stands in 25th place overall going into the last day of Gold Fleet racing with Charlie Buckingham in 7th. Bowers said, "Today was tough. My trigger pull starting skills in super-windy conditions are lacking the proper world-class technique required to get off the line well. Regardless, I will go hard on the final day of racing for me in Palma." Gold fleet racing concludes on Friday, April 1 at 11am Palma time with 2 races scheduled. The Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia Regatta is the second and final selection event for the U.S. Sailing Olympic Team in the Laser class.

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.

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.

On Day 1 day of racing at the Trofeo SAR Princess Sophia Regatta in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, MYC's Erik Bowers posted finishes of 20,13 respectively in a 15-20mph westerly with 4' seas. He stands in 42nd overall, 17 points behind Charlie Buckingham for the highly-coveted top American sailor spot in the Laser class. According to Erik, "The qualifying series competition ends Tuesday, one day sooner than normal. We then split into Gold, Silver, and Bronze fleets for three more days of racing. Tuesday is crunch time. I need two excellent races to be able to throw out my 20th and stay in the Gold Fleet hunt." Bowers continued, "The race committee set long starting lines today. My prestart was good but I needed to start closer to the ends to better judge time and distance to the start." Racing resumes Tuesday, March 29. The Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia Regatta is the second and final selection event for the U.S. Sailing Olympic Team in the Laser class.
