The Trofeo S.A.R. Princesa Sofia MAPFRE, one of the most important Olympic sailing events in Europe, expects to gather together around 800 boats and over 1,200 sailors from 4 to 10 April in the bay of Palma. The regatta is open to thirteen events, the ten Olympic (49er, 470 M & W, RS:X M & W, Finn, Laser Standard, Laser Radial, Star and Match Race Women) and the three Paralympic events to take part in the 2012 London Olympics. Of the three Paralympic events, the 2.4mR is the better known in Spain, with a fleet of approximately 20 units. It is a single-handed keelboat, and as a sister to the bigger 6m, 8m and 12m yachts, she possesses the typical powerful Metre boat sailing style. The other two are the Skud, double-handed and asymmetrical spinnaker and the Sonar, triple-handed and asymmetrical spinnaker. Paralympic sailing was an exhibition sport in the 1996 Atlanta Games and became a full medal sport for the first time in Sydney 2000. The equipment is adapted to the different disabilities and scoring is also made in accordance with the level of disability allowing sailors with different disabilities to sail together.
