VIDEO: A four day trip
Published on March 29th, 2015
The 46th Trofeo Princesa Sofía (March 28-April 4, 2015) is one of the most enduring and prestigious Olympic-class regattas in the world. The event is held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, a venue with a rich sailing history, and this year approximately 1,000 sailors from over 50 nations are expected to compete.
One of those nations is Australia… a serious commute for those sailors.
Here’s a short film documenting the four day trip from Sydney, Australia to Palma, Spain by some Australian Sailing Team sailors. They flew 22 hours from Australia to Germany to pick up their Olympic equipment in Rotterdam and drove 27 hours to Barcelona to catch the overnight ferry to Palma. The time to recover from the four day adventure takes about a week.
