(Source: Rigging Projects) Friday was stepping day in ’72 Alley’, after a busy week at the STP boat yard in Palma de Mallorca. 'Shockwave' kicked off proceedings early in the morning, stepping their Future Fibres mast in preparation of Copa Del Rey.
'Jethou' followed with their Hall / Carbo-Link package and 'Bella Mente' finally released the crane in the afternoon after making quick work of stepping their Hall mast.
The other two 72' mini maxis in the yard, 'Robertissima' and 'Ran', who both sport complete Southern Spars packages, didn’t unstep between the Rolex Giraglia race and the upcoming regatta in Palma, complete the line up at STP boatyard.
The boats will be launching today except for ‘JV72 Ran’ as the crew is competing in the TP52 Super Series instead. All the boats are scheduled to re-measure, suggesting significant changes. We also expect the arrival of 'Alegre' today in Palma, who will complete the 72’ fleet for Copa Del Rey.
Bring on the racing!
