Anticipando Palmavela 2012


El nuevo Azzurra diseño del estudio Botín & Partners hace su debut en Palmavela como campeonato de entrenamiento para la temporada 2012. En la bahia de Palma ya estaban entrenando hoy Quantum, Gladiator, Ran y mañana se suma el barco argentino.

Nueva extensión de popa para el Jethou que tiene la curiosidad de llevar la botavara del ex Copa America Victory Challenge. La original del barco se partió y pudieron encontrar esta que entraba en medidas casi a la perfección

La flota Wally siempre presente en Palmavela aunque este año un tanto diezmada en cantidad.
